Microsoft has released a new build for Windows 10 Preview. The new build goes by the number of 15031, and is available to all Windows PC Insiders on the Fast ring.
Build 15031 isn’t as feature-rich as some of its predecessors, but it does bring some refreshing features, that users will definitely find useful.
The highlight of the build is definitely the new Overlay feature. This feature allows you to easily switch between two Windows 10 apps, while keeping the minimized app’s preview in the top right corner. This concept is similar to YouTube’s app for Android, so users familiar with this feature will definitely be glad to see Overlay in Windows 10.
Besides the Overlay feature, the new build also brings some additional novelties. One of them is the Dynamic Lock feature. This feature locks your computer after 30 seconds, if your Bluetooth-paired mobile phone is not around. Additionally, there’s a new Share icon, which should look more appealing to users.
As promised in some previous builds, Windows 10 build 15031 brings full-screen support for the Game bar for 52 additional games. You can check the full list of supported games on Microsoft’s official build announcement page.
Besides these new features, build 15031 also fixes some of the known issues from the previously-released builds. On top of that, the new build also causes some issues to Insiders who install it. You can also check the full list of improvements and known issues on the build announcement blog post.
