Microsoft today made a new technical preview of Windows 10 Mobile available to fast ring members of the Windows Insider program. As with the previous build, interested testers will need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 before installing build 10572. (Microsoft says beginning with build 10575 and up, users will be able to once again go straight from one preview to the next.) The new build takes advantage of Cortana to push call and text notifications from the phone to Windows PCs as well as handle text replies. This function requires Cortana to be up and running on both machines. Build 10572 integrates Skype across the messaging, phone, and Skype video apps, and now supports animated GIFs and message/call history search. The build further refines Cortana, which can be used to track movie and event reminders, as well as book Uber rides. Offline maps can now be saved to memory cards; the photo app supports local favorites and more editing functions; and storage settings have been improved in a such a way that the user experience is more consistent between phones and PCs. As always, Microsoft warns that the technical previews are not for primary handsets and are for testing purposes only. Microsoft is expected to release Windows 10 Mobile to the general public in December.
