Similar to the last two Insider test builds, 15014 will include some new features and as per the description given in the blog post, the current build includes an acknowledgement, where the company will not be delivering the new “My People” feature, which it showed off in October 2016, as a part of the Creators Update, as it had been planned originally.
The new Insider build will allow Testers residing in the U.S. to purchase ebooks directly from the Windows Store and read them in Edge. The users will also be able to ask Cortana to explain or define the words and at the same time, allow them to view the embedded videos as well as audio content given in the books.
My People comes with the ability to pin the contacts to the taskbar. In addition to it, users will be able to drag and drop photos and videos as well as other content directly for sharing and it has now been slated among the next major update of Windows 10.
Microsoft has also decided to remove the Apps Corner feature in Mobile from this release itself. This step has been taken because of low usage by the users.
Another feature which has been added to this test build is the ability to pick a custom accent color (for PCs), along with the ability to automatically remove the files, which are not required. We also saw the merging of Wi-Fi settings under a new section in the Settings and also a new power slider for PCs. The new power slider is the part of the battery –life-extension work, which the company is currently conducting on the selected PCs only.
Microsoft has made numerous minor tweaks and fixes with this build. It is really essential that you read the known issues along with other changes, improvements and fixes before downloading.
