Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build 14283: What’s New
Improvements to the Phone app
Build 14283 adds missed call and voicemail waiting indicators to the tabs inside the Phone app. Once you navigate to a tab with a missed call or voicemail – the indicator goes away. Another upcoming change will keep the indicator in place until you navigate away from the tab.
Updates to Outlook Mail & Calendar
The update for Outlook Mail & Calendar apps introduces some new features and improvements. In Outlook Mail, you can turn off the message preview text in the message list (Settings > Reading > Conversation and turning “Show preview text” off). You can also quickly get rid of junk email in your inbox by pressing down on a message to bring up the context menu and choosing ‘Move to Junk’. In Outlook Calendar, you can now let others know “I’ll be late” directly from meeting notifications.
A new welcome dialog for Feedback Hub has been added to Insider Hub. With next mobile and PC build, the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps will be brought together into a single app called the Feedback Hub.
In addition to these new features, Windows 10 Mobile preview build 14283 also brings a lot of bug fixes. Read more on What’s fixed and what’s not.
