Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14931 has just been released for PC and it brings a few changes. Users have noticed a settings page for Feedback Hub, dark mode and feedback author in feedback details and they’ve been given the option to send SMS via Skype preview app, if they choose it as the default messaging app.
The new update also brings native support for USB Audio 2.0 devices and it includes an inbox class driver. However, the Microsoft team has explained that not all features are enabled in the early version of the driver, and recording support is expected to be added much later to the software.
As for Maps app, its version was upgraded to 5.1609.2580.0+ and it allows users to check traffic info all the time. They will just tap on the Traffic icon that is found in the app bar, and they will see the traffic conditions between two different locations in real-time. Plus, they are able to set a light or dark mode, or to choose themes in Maps app.
Microsoft has also fixed an issue that occurred when signing out and switching to a different user account and which caused screen to go black. In the previous build, Microsoft’s built-in apps such as Alarms & Clock, Voice Recorder and Calculator had some performance issues, but they have been solved in this build.
The Windows team posted on the official blog that “We are continuing to investigate two issues that came up with last week’s flight of Build 14926 for Mobile. After upgrading to Build 14926, some Insiders reported that the pin pad is no longer visible to unlock their phone even after rebooting the phone and some phones lost the ability to use their SIM card. In both cases, a hard reset of resolves the issue.”
Windows 10 Insider Build 14931 still has some minor issues, and one of them prevented users from removing a conversation. The good news is that now it’s possible to send SMS via Skype, but some users have experienced some problems with this feature.
