New Windows 10 Mobile Insider Build brings stability improvements before October 6 event

Today, Microsoft launched a new Windows 10 Mobile Insider Build (10536), following the company’s announcement yesterday regarding a big Windows 10 mobile reveal event on October 6.

The build is currently only being pushed out to Windows Insider users “on the fast ring” and Microsoft says that it’s taking it longer than expected to deliver this particular preview build to all of its members.

In order for build 10512 users to access this update, they’ll need to actually update their device twice. Once these two updates are installed, build 10536.1004 will reportedly appear on most devices, though Microsoft warns people should expect a lengthly download period.

The list of improvements in Windows 10 Mobile Insider Build 10536:

  • Insider Hub is now included again!
  • Mobile hotspot functionality has been fixed.
  • Voice input has been updated to add support for Japanese and English (India) speech recognition.
  • Single hop updates are again available from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview for all devices.
  • Two-factor authentication is fixed when setting up a device for both text and phone authentication.
  • Start screen will successfully load instead of failing with “Loading …” displayed in a loop until device was rebooted. (We are still tracking down an issue were it may show “Loading …” for a few seconds.)
  • Quite Hours\Do Not Disturb has been fixed.
  • Delay in showing date and time on Lock screen has been improved.
  • Pinch and zoom in Maps now works as expected.

Windows 10 Mobile’s photo app has also been updated to include a new folder view option, as well as the ability to view photos saved in OneDrive and images saved onto an SD card.
