We have a new update from Microsoft Windows team about a new build of Insider Preview. Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14931 for PC is released in fast ring for insiders.
What is new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14931?
As we have shared a screenshot from Team Windows in previous announcement showing expiration time of Windows 10 Build. The same has been continued and the expiration has been set and made annoying for users running earlier builds than 14926, specially before Anniversary Update. If you have Anniversary Update installed and running in slow ring channel of Insider Preview program, you will not be prompted about Updating your build.
Feedback Hub and Map app for Windows are updated and Skype has added capability to send and receive SMS if your account is linked with Windows Phone running Skype as default SMS client. Also there are few more updates.
We fixed the issue causing people to experience a black screen when signing out and switching to another user account and unable to log in to that account.
We fixed the issue causing the built-in Windows 10 apps such as Calculator, Alarms & Clock, and Voice Recorder to not work after updating to a new build.
On this build, there are also known issues which you might consider before updating.
- While using Narrator and Groove Music, if you navigate to the progress bar while a song is playing then Narrator will continually speak the progress of the song e.g. update with the current time of the progress bar every second. The result is you will be unable to listen to the song or hear any other control you navigate to.
- Oracle VM VirtualBox will crash on launch after upgrading to this build.
- Optional components may not work after upgrading to this build. To get it working again, go to “Turn Windows features on or off”, scroll down and check the right optional component and click ok. After a reboot, the optional component will be enabled again.
- For keyboard users, using tab to navigate the Settings app will not work in this build. The arrow keys should work as a temporary workaround.
- Tencent apps and games will cause your PC to bugcheck (bluescreen).
