Microsoft released the new Windows 10 Preview build 16257 for Windows 10 PC and Preview build 15237 for Windows 10 Mobile. Both builds are available for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring. 

The new builds bring us closer to the final release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, by introducing a couple of new features to Windows Insiders. The main highlight on PC is the new Eye Control feature. This feature allows users with disabilities to control their PC using their eyes only. Users will be able to unlock their computers, as well as use the on-screen keyboard, and mouse. Of course, this technology requires appropriate hardware. 

The new build also brings improvements for Microsoft Edge. Microsoft’s browser now looks better, thank’s to the new Fluet Design System. Along with the new look, Microsoft also addressed a few bugs and known issues in its browser.

And finally, the fan favorite of this build. Default colors for the Console have been updated, after more than 20 years! Introducing multiple colors to the Console should modernize the platform, and align it with other new Windows 10 features that will be coming with the Fall Creators Update.

As for Mobile, build 15237 only fixes a few known issues and bugs. That should come as no surprise, because Microsoft practically gave up on Mobile, and we shouldn’t expect any revolutionary features in the future.

As always, the new build also fixes some “less-visible” issues on both platforms, but also brings a new set of bugs. You can check the full list of improvements and known issues on Microsoft’s official blog post. We’ll also write our own report article on issues caused by the recent Preview builds, to let you know what else bothers Insiders.

If you’re on the Fast ring, all you need to do to install the latest build is to go to Windows Update, and check for updates.

If you’ve already installed the new build, let us know what you think about it in the comments.
