Microsoft Announces Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 14283

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 14283 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
 
Microsoft in its official blog has send out a reminder to the users, stating,
 
“As a reminder, we are initially making new mobile builds from our Development Branch available only to devices that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile. Currently this includes the Lumia 950, 950 XL, 650, 550, Xiaomi Mi4, and ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL. We plan to expand to other devices once we start releasing Windows 10 Mobile to other devices. If you are a Windows Insider on a device not mentioned above, you can stay in the Fast ring and sit tight until we expand to other devices or go back to Build 10586 and switch to the Release Preview ring to continue helping us test Cumulative Updates. For more information about our rings and branches, I highly recommend reading this post here in Insider Hub.”
 
This new build comes with some new features, along with better improvements and fixes that Insiders will be able to enjoy on their devices.
 
The new features in the new Build 14283 are as stated below: 
  • Improvement to the Phone app: Microsoft has added missed call and voicemail waiting indicators to the tabs inside the Phone app, and once you navigate to the tab with a missed call or voicemail; the indicator will go. The company will be bring in more changes soon, where you will be able to keep the indicator in place until you navigate away from the tab. There is also a bug present, where you will not be able to see the indicator clear right away, and Microsoft will soon be bringing in a fix for this.

  • Updates to Outlook Mail & Calendar: Microsoft has also released an update to Outlook Mail and Calendar apps, which introduces some new features and improvements. Outlook Mail, you can turn off the message preview text in the message list (Settings > Reading > Conversation and turning “Show preview text” off). You will be able to quickly get rid of all the junk email in your junk box, by pressing down on a message, in order to bring up the context menu and choose ‘Move to Junk’. In Outlook Calendar, you can now let others know “I’ll be late” directly from meeting notifications.

  • Coming Soon – the Feedback Hub: When you open the Insider Hub on this build, you will see a new welcome dialog for Feedback Hub. In the coming mobile and PC build, Microsoft is bringing together the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback app into a single app, known as the Feedback Hub. The Feedback Hub carries over all of the best things from the previous two apps plus some new things Insiders will enjoy. For example, in addition to upvoting feedback, you will be able to also leave comments on feedback. The home page in the Feedback Hub has also been redesigned, in order to bring together announcements and quests. 
Here are the fixes whose issues the company has addressed: 
  • We have addressed an issue where the background behind the All apps list would not have an overlay (causing it to appear too bright or too dark, depending on your background) if you went back to All apps list after launching an app.
  • We fixed an issue causing the title of a song in volume control to flicker a few times when you pressed play or changed tracks after a pause.
  • We fixed an issue some users were experiencing with Build 14267 where your device could hang while typing and reboot.
  • We made some more improvements to the Live tile refresh logic. First, if there are pending notifications for several Live tiles, we will now update them in one quick sweep across the Start screen rather than one at a time. Second, if a Live tile has both badge and content updates, they will now appear at the same time. Finally, apps will now launch faster from the Start screen if there are incoming Live tile updates at the same time.
  • We fixed an issue where Live tiles for certain apps (such as the Weather app) would sometimes unexpectedly be cleared of active notifications.
  • We fixed an issue in which the Start screen background would appear to stutter behind the tiles when scrolling up and down the Start screen on some devices such as the Lumia 950.
  • We fixed an issue where the keyboard would sometimes pop up when swiping over to the All apps list.
  • We fixed an issue where icons for certain apps would appear too tiny on Live folders on the Start screen if your phone was set to 350% DPI.
  • We fixed an issue where “More notifications” message in Action Center was not properly formatted.
  • We fixed an issue where for certain languages, pressing “@” button could result the contents of the clipboard being pasted.
  • We fixed an issue where notifications using custom sounds would be silent if the underlying audio file had been deleted. Now, if that file is not present, it will play the default notification sound.
  • Connected to wireless displays should now work by going to Action Center and expanding Quick actions and choosing “Connect”.
Here are the known issues as per the official blog:
  • We have updated the Bluetooth AVRCP profile on mobile to version 1.5. Some cars only tell Windows what they support and vice versa during the initial pairing ceremony. In order for this update to take full effect, you need to delete your existing Bluetooth pairing with your car and then re-pair. After doing so, if you notice any issues using media playback controls or missing artist or track info, please file a new feedback item including your car’s make, model, and year.

  • If you have a Microsoft Band 1 or 2 paired to your phone, it will no longer sync after updating to this build due to a system API failure that occurs after the update. If you want to get your Band syncing with your phone again – you can temporarily change the language of your phone as a short term workaround until we release a fix. Additionally, you can also choose to reset your phone to get out of this state – however you may experience this update issue again with the next build until we fix this issue. This issue may also impact Skype video and audio calls.

  • We are investigating an issue where the Gadgets app is not able to detect the Microsoft Display Dock on phones running Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds, and thus cannot update the firmware version. If you have a dock which has already been updated to version 4 then this will not affect you. If you have a dock that has not been updated, then you may experience some minor issues with USB-C stability.

  • Connectivity to older Wi-Fi networks using the WEP encryption security method may be broken. WEP is an insecure method for protecting your Wi-Fi connection but a small percentage of Windows users still use it. A workaround would be to configure your wireless routers to use WPA or WPA2 or wait for the next Insider flight when this is fixed.
