Microsoft brought some refreshing cross-compatibility features to both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile with previous Preview builds. However,  a lot of users complained that these features don’t work properly, so Microsoft decided to fix things up in build 14328.

Microsoft introduced cross-platform low battery notifications, the ability to ring or find your phone, and the ability to share maps between devices to Cortana in build 14316. But, a huge number of users reported that none of these additions seemed to work, so Microsoft had to do something in this release.

Allegedly, build 14295 on Windows 10 Mobile caused problems, as it wasn’t able operate with a PC properly. Microsoft didn’t specify an exact cause of the problem in Windows 10 Mobile build 14295, but the company assures users that the problem was fixed.

However, the new build 14327 for Windows 10 Mobile is already out, so Insiders who keep their phones updated have nothing to worry about.

Microsoft constantly improves Cortana‘s cross-platform compatibility, especially with Windows 10 Mobile. New features are, of course, presented to Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast ring first, so occasional bugs and errors are common. Even Cortana on the Lock Screen, which was introduced a couple of days ago, has its flaws, but we expect Microsoft to deliver some improvements as soon as in the next Preview build.

If you already had an opportunity to try some of these features already, feel free to share your impressions with us in the comments.
