Microsoft Releasing New Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build For Windows Phones Tomorrow
Microsoft is releasing another Windows 10 Mobile preview build for its Windows Phones to Windows Insider testers tomorrow.
The new build is promised to work on more Windows Phones, compared to its predecessors, including the Lumia Icon, Lumia 930, and Lumia 640/640XL devices. Additionally, it will be released for the HTC One M8 for Windows as well, the first non-Lumia phone to be supported by the preview.
Until now, these devices have not been able to run the Windows 10 Mobile test builds because of issues relating with screen scaling. According to Microsoft, these and some other issues have been corrected.
Alongside the release of the preview build, Microsoft is also making available the test build of Office Universal apps for Windows Phones. These apps will be downloadable via the Windows Store Beta in the new Windows 10 Mobile build tomorrow.
These Office universal apps will be replacing the Office Mobile hub apps that are currently built into Windows Phones. These are the new versions of the core Office apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, which are being developed to run on Windows 10 Desktop and Mobile.
The Windows Store has received a new look as well with the new test build. There’s an Xbox app for Windows 10 phones, as well as the new Camera app for Windows 10 phones. The new build also fixes a slew of “known issues”.
