Another Windows 10 news week has passed us. This week kicked off with a new Windows 10 build leaking onto the web. Build 10537, which is an unofficial Insider build, found its way onto public sharing sites at the beginning of the week. The build didn’t include much, but as per usual we went hands on with all the new changes.
Up next, Microsoft kicked off the Windows 10 for Xbox One preview for select Xbox Preview members. Invitations started going out earlier in the week, but the update only just started rolling out as of a few days ago. The new update includes a brand new user-interface and a whole bunch of performance enhancements which will make the Xbox One experience a lot better.
Microsoft also published a number of new app updates for the Mail and Calendar apps, improving their user-interfaces and overall experiences dramatically. The updated apps now include a new and improved dark mode, with the ability to have a wallpaper within the app, and new icons which make the taskbar a lot more detailed.
Furthermore, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Insider build, build 10547. The new build is available now for fast ringed Insiders, and packs a number of new features such as the ability to have 4 columns on Start, disable the login wallpaper, and more. Make sure you check for updates via Windows Update as an insider if you’re yet to install the latest bits.
Microsoft’s October 6th event is almost upon us and we expect Microsoft to announce new devices. There will be a live stream of the private event, and oh, of course, we will be in attendance too! Stay tuned for another exciting week of Windows 10 news!
That’s all for this week. What was your favorite story? Let us know below.
