Windows 10 Preview Build 15031 Is Out for Mobile; No Picture-in-Picture Mode Though


Following the release of Windows 10 Creators Update Preview Build 15031 that brought in the Picture-in-Picture mode to Windows PCs, Microsoft is now releasing the same build to Mobile Insiders on the Fast ring. Windows 10 Mobile Build 15031 doesn't bring PiP (aka Compact Overlay window) to Mobile, but it does bring you the new Share icon, along with a number of bug fixes and improvements.

Those on the Fast ring can now download today's Windows 10 Mobile Preview 15031 from Settings > Update and Security > Phone Update.

Other improvements and fixes 

-We fixed an issue in recent Insider builds where certain calendar appointments could result in a Mail crash with every sync. This issue could also result in issues sending and receiving SMS.
-We fixed an issue where pausing a streaming track, for example in Groove Music, would result in no more re-buffering when playback is resumed, leading to choppy playback audio.
-We fixed an issue where text copied from a PDF in Microsoft Edge couldn’t be pasted.
-We fixed an issue where the ninja cats on the People and Animals page of the keyboard were displaying in two characters on the keyboard instead of the expected one.
-We also added the rainbow flag emoji to the keyboard. You can find it in the transportation and weather section.
-We’ve updated Keyboard Settings so that “Switch back to letters after I type an emoticon” is now off by default.
-We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge might sometimes unexpectedly not rotate into landscape mode.
-We fixed an issue where, if the phone was connected to the PC, deleting an entire folder (without opening the folder) on the phone from the PC’s file explorer might not result in the folder actually being deleted on the phone. We also fixed an issue where (still connected to the PC) the phone might freeze for a short while after cancelling copying content to the SD card.
-We fixed an issue resulting in some games with an explicit option to “exit game” unexpectedly taking a long time to close.
-We fixed an issue resulting in some games were drawing up and to the left offscreen in recent flights.
-We fixed an issue where receiving a notification while the phone was in your pocket could unexpectedly result in the screen turning on.
-We’ve improved reliability when handling malformed Gifs in XAML-based apps.
