Latest Windows 10 Build Allows You to Resume from iPhone & Android to PC
Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16291 for PC to Insiders in the Fast ring. Since those on Skip Ahead have moved on to testing Windows 10 Redstone 4 (slated for a public release in Spring, next year), today's build is not available to Skip Ahead. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update releasing to the public next month, the company has started focusing more on stabilization. "You’ll notice that this build continues to include a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy," the team wrote.
Windows 10 build 16291 lets you resume from iPhones, Android to PC with Cortana
Today's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update does bring a small new feature to Fast ring Insiders. "Cortana users can now resume articles, news from their iPhones and Android phones to PC from within the Cortana app," the feature reads. This is in addition to the existing features that already allow Windows 10 users to sync reminders, notifications and SMS across their devices.
Other fixes that today's build brings, include:
- We fixed an issue where sometimes after an upgrade Windows Update’s update history would be missing a listing for the feature update you’d just done.
- We fixed an issue where scrolling with touch or precision touchpads wasn’t working with the F12 Developer Tools.
- We fixed an issue where pin reset above lock (“I forgot my PIN”) would only work the first time the password was reset.
- We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash if you added a Favorite to a Favorites folder and then immediately sorted that folder by name.
- We fixed an issue with the indexer from recent flights that could result in Outlook 2016 search failing to index the body of messages.
- We fixed a recent issue resulting in the Skype UWP app not being launched if it was minimized when you clicked an incoming call notification.
