Windows 10 Mobile Insider Update Breaks WEP
This week, Windows Insiders can test the mobile operating system's new quality-of-life improvements, but users might have trouble connecting to older WiFi routers.A new build of Windows 10 Mobile is now available for members of the Windows Insider early access program who are enrolled in the "Fast Ring" to be first in line to test upcoming updates to the mobile operating system. Although it includes several enhancements, users who are still connecting to virtually unprotected WEP WiFi networks may face some challenges. Build 14283 of the OS features updates to the Phone app, including new missed call and voicemail waiting indicators. Within the app, tabs will now display the number of missed calls and voicemails awaiting attention. Navigating to a tab currently dismisses notifications, but Microsoft is working on letting them persist until after a user navigates away from the tab. The Mail app now offers a new option to turn off message previews. A new "Move to Junk" option in the app's context menu allows users to press a message and quickly remove unwanted messages. In Outlook Calendar, meeting notifications gain a new "I'll be late" option that notifies other attendees. The latest version of Windows 10 Mobile also teases a new feedback gathering experience from Microsoft.
Launching the Insider Hub app will display a welcome message referencing Feedback Hub, an upcoming consolidation of the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps. "The Feedback Hub carries over all of the best things from the previous two apps plus some new things Insiders will enjoy," stated Gabe Aul, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Engineering Systems group, in a March 10 announcement.
