Microsoft’s Insider Fast rings are prone to bugs, that’s an undeniable fact and a consequence of their nature. The Windows Insider program has rings which allow users to get access to in development builds of Windows 10 both for PC and Mobile devices. There have been 2 releases of Windows 10 so far, and one upcoming one, so insiders really should have gotten the hang of it by now. The fast ring is often buggy up till a month or two before the public release of the new OS. Windows 10 Anniversary Update is expected in July, so it is no surprise that a build which is received in April is slightly buggy. That does not prevent complainers from ranting about how “Microsoft sucks” and “Windows 10 is the worst ever”. It’s as mindless as walking in on a baking session, eating some batter and then declaring you don’t like the cake.
That being said, let’s look at last week’s stories.
Microsoft releases a new Windows Anniversary Update build for mobile
Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Mobile build for Insiders on the fast ring last week. This build is one of the most feature packed ones yet, and also one of the buggiest so far. In terms of the positives, users can expect shiny new emojis, a revamped (albeit in progress) action center, and improvements to the lockscreen. There are many other features, but we’ve listed them in this article here.
There are also quite a few bugs which may get you in a bit of a bind if you don’t know your way around them. The FM radio is missing, Apps may not launch, and the store might flake out on you when downloading apps. There are many good reasons to skip this build if your gut tells you not to, and I personally have downgraded one of my devices from it (windows backup
makes it an easy choice).
Nevertheless, should you choose to upgrade to this build and run into the app issue, Nokia’s App Folder app can be used to launch any and all apps on the system, eliminating the most annoying bug of them all.
And the Groove Music team bring a new update to mobile and PC devices.
