Windows 10 Mobile Redstone to bring Call Audio Routing

A leaked internal build of Windows 10 Mobile reveals that an upcoming build of the newly released operating system might bring additional options of how a user wants to route their calls. Calls can be routed directly to a connected Bluetooth device or to the Phone speaker, allowing user to choose where they want their audio to play when they get a phone call.

Users will also be able to choose a new option to have the speaker phone automatically turn on when the phone is removed away from the ear. These additional call routing features might appeal to a small number of users who want to have the control of audio devices getting the calls. The second feature will be a helpful tool to move to the speaker phone without having to interrupt an ongoing conversation.

Windows 10 Mobile gets audio routing options in latest Redstone builds. Also it is now possible to turn the call on the speaker just by moving the phone from your ear.

Could also be released as an app updated for phones running 10586 and Insiders later. mswin
