Microsoft just released the new build 16291 for Windows 10 Insider Preview. The new build is available to Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring on PC only. There’s no new build for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview.

Unlike some previous recent builds for Windows 10 Preview, build 16291 actually brings one new feature: users are now able to resume articles or news from their iPhone and Android devices to PC using Cortana. For now, we don’t know if this feature is coming to Windows 10 Mobile at all. 

Besides the new feature, build 16291 also brings a handful of bug fixes and system improvements, expected additions since we’re close to the official release date of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Here’s the complete changelog of Windows 10 Preview build 16291:

  • We fixed an issue where sometimes after an upgrade Windows Update’s update history would be missing a listing for the feature update you’d just done.

  • We fixed an issue where scrolling with touch or precision touchpads wasn’t working with the F12 Developer Tools.

  • We fixed an issue where pin reset above lock (“I forgot my PIN”) would only work the first time the password was reset.

  • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash if you added a Favorite to a Favorites folder and then immediately sorted that folder by name.

  • We fixed an issue with the indexer from recent flights that could result in Outlook 2016 search failing to index the body of messages.

  • We fixed a recent issue resulting in the Skype UWP app not being launched if it was minimized when you clicked an incoming call notification.

To obtain the new Windows 10 Preview build 16291, simply go to Settings > Updates & security and check for updates. For more information about the build, visit Microsoft’s official build announcement blog post.
