Microsoft is internally testing some new features for Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2. However, the latest builds haven't introduced any major surprising features to the mobile operating system. While we do see regular performance improvements and bug fixes, Windows 10 Mobile is yet to get some big love from the Redmond software giant.
One of these changes planned for Windows 10 Mobile are new features for Continuum for phones. Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 will apparently bring a number of new features, including multi-window support for Continuum. Continuum is Microsoft's next version of mobile computing for businesses. The company is investing in new capabilities for Continuum to make it easier on the battery and more PC-like on the phone screens. Along with better toast notifications, you will also be able to use Continnum even when your device is locked.

At Microsoft Ignite 2016, the company showed a demo of the highly anticipated multi-window support for Windows 10 Mobile.

Critics and users have long complained that Microsoft is more focused on its desktop operating system and that the mobile version has largely lagged behind. The company aims to finally change that focus with Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 release. Microsoft will release new improvements to Continuum along with several other features for Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 in 2017. While 2016 has remained the year of Windows 10 for PC, next year we would hopefully see Windows 10 Mobile getting some long-deserved attention from Redmond.
