Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Preview Build


Following the release of Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Preview Build 10572 just over a week ago, Microsoft has officially launched an all-new build of Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Preview Build 10581, to Windows Insiders for download and testing.

Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Preview Build 10581 features enhancements and bug fixes such as:

  • You can now select photos for sharing through third party apps
  • Battery life should be improved in this build
  • An issue where you couldn’t choose some apps to show quick status on the Lock screen has been fixed
  • Text prediction and auto-correction has been improved
  • Video recording functionality has been improved
  • Visual Voicemail sync should now work properly
  • The dual-SIM issues that appeared in Build 10572 has been fixed
  • An issue found with Build 10572 where the Chinese Pinyin QWERTY keyboard stopped working after upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1 has been fixed
Reminder: Unlike the previous Build 10572, users on Windows 10 Mobile can now upgrade directly to the latest Windows 10 release without going back to Windows Phone 8.1.

Windows 10 Mobile Insiders Preview Build 10581 is now available through Windows Update, as part of the company's Fast Ring builds program.
