Home » The latest Windows 10 build brings a new phone sound set

The latest Windows 10 build focuses on further perfecting the Windows experience and brings a series of interesting improvements for both PC and Mobile. Build 14905 brings only one new feature, namely a new sound set for Windows 10 phones.

This new sound set couldn’t have arrived at a better moment. Windows 10 Mobile users have been complaining for quite some time about the poor sound quality on their phones. The complaint wave started shortly after the Windows 10 Mobile OS was launched, and it appears this issue is affecting the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update OS as well.

The latest Windows 10 Mobile build aims at leveling the sounds currently available on the Windows platform. Microsoft wants the Windows 10 phone sounds to be more harmonious and sound more familiar with the desktop and tablet sounds.

We are introducing a newly refined sound set in this build, uniting the best of our past and present. We aspire to set a new bar for mobile sound set quality, and are trying to make the soundscape of technology more beautiful and harmonious. This also helps align with new sound design direction of the Windows platform as a whole, so that mobile sounds will family with desktop and tablet and be feel instantly familiar to all Windows users.

If you’re curios to test out the sound improvements, go to Settings > Personalization > Sounds to see the updated list of available sounds. If you don’t want to take any risks by installing build 14905 on your phone, you can listen to two of the new sounds, Clokktastrophe and Marrakech on Soundcloud.
