Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones


Recommended Posts

Is workplace working for anyone? OneNote and my work email/calendar are two things I miss the most on this.

 

Something is quite messed up with the power usage on the 10 preview though.

 

in the 4 hours since I took mine off charging this morning after it installed tonight, it went down to 10% with barely any actual usage. just laying idle being hot doing who knows what. 

ditto - mine went down from 100% to 10% in just 3 hours. I also had a series of random reboots (every 10-20mins for 2 hrs) for no apparent reasons :huh: still holding on though. Let's see if I can survive till next build or Build (whichever comes first).

I have no major issues with speed, aside from the navigation keys being slow to respond sometimes.

This build is extremely buggy and unstable on my Lumia 920, not surprised that it is bad on 520 which is even lower speced.

I updated normally, then ?I did a factory reset on Windows 10. It's working pretty okay aside from that thing with the keys. Sometimes I need to press them a few times. Photos are working for me, so I dunno about that.

 

EDIT: By the way, is there a way to mute the dialer keys? Really annoying.

Really? I think it looks gorgeous and I love he direction they're going. Just needs some polishing and more consistency, of course.

 

EDIT: About the battery life, my phone has been unplugged form the charger for 8 or so hours and it's at 60%, it seems pretty okay. I haven't used it intensively, but I've used it.

Battery life has been nothing but great for me. I have no complaints at all in that field.

This gets a big "meh" from me. Don't really see it as that big of an upgrade. I still like the OS over all but it's not going to solve the app problem, even with universal apps (basically it doesn't make me regret switching to an iPhone).

Windows 10 for Phones is so broken it's not even funny. I think it's ridiculous they're already releasing builds for phones, considering the state that they're in.

I have a few apps that won't load and the data restriction functions need to come back (haven't installed 10052 yet on that note,) but nothing seems broken at all on the 635

      Yellow Messenger integrates Microsoft Azure cognitive services on its platform
      by Sylvester Addo



      India based conversational AI startup, Yellow Messenger, announced a partnership with Microsoft to build a human-like voice automation platform that can understand and respond based on sentiment, dialect, and workflow.

      This will see Yellow Messenger using Microsoft’s Azure cognitive services; Azure AI Speech Services and Natural Language processing tools to increase the accuracy of its voice bot solutions. Making organizations that use the voice automation platform better understand the intents of their users.

      Azure Cognitive Services is a family of artificial intelligent services that allow systems to see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret human needs using natural methods of communication.

      These cognitive services leveraged in the voice bot solution will make engaging with automated services such as support, sales and commerce feel like a human to human interaction. Instead of an automated to human interaction.

      Commenting on the collaboration Raghu Ravinutala, CEO and Cofounder, Yellow Messenger said:

      Microsoft will team up with Yellow Messenger’s R&D teams to create solutions that help enterprises in various sectors enhance consumer experience automation.

      Microsoft backpedals on Xbox Live Gold pricing, free-to-play games won't require subscription
      by Usama Jawad

      A few hours ago, Microsoft received massive backlash for increasing the price of its Xbox Live Gold program for new customers. It announced that the price of a one-month subscription is increasing by $1 to $10.99, and price of a three-month membership is increasing by $5 to $29.99, and a six-month membership is now $59.99 - which was previously the cost of its annual membership.

      Following feedback from users of the service, Microsoft has now backpedaled on the decision.



      In a statement on the original blog post, the firm has announced that it will not be implementing the new price model, and that the price of Xbox Live Gold membership will remain the same. It stated that:

      A notable change coming to the program is that you will not require a subscription to play free-to-play games like Fortnite or Call of Duty: Warzone. This will make the service more in line with Sony's competing PlayStation Plus program. However, this modification to the program is not immediately available and Microsoft will be working to deliver it "in the coming months".

      When Microsoft announced the new pricing model a few hours ago, many believed that it was designed to push gamers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is arguably a better value proposition, but at $14.99/month. However, the price hike was considered to be in bad optics considering that the company is not adding any new features to the service, and free-to-play games still require a premium membership unlike Sony's PlayStation Plus. With the subscription model now reverted to the original and now packing a major improvement, it remains to be seen how the firm will entice users to join the Game Pass Ultimate program.

      Microsoft Teams to be integrated into SAP solutions
      by Paul Hill

      Microsoft has announced that its collaboration tool, Microsoft Teams, will be integrated into SAP’s suite of solutions. Complementing this move, Microsoft and SAP have agreed to accelerate the adoption of SAP S/4HANA on Microsoft Azure.

      With the coronavirus pandemic forcing places of work to close, more people have been forced to work from home. By integrating Microsoft Teams with products like SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, and SAP Customer Experience, the two firms hope that they can boost user productivity and engagement which could help support growth in economies after being hit hard by the virus.

      Commenting on the agreement, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said:

      SAP customers using any of the aforementioned solutions should be able to use the Microsoft Teams integration sometime in the middle of the year, according to Microsoft. With regards to the two companies’ plan to accelerate the integration of SAP S/4HANA on Azure, a SAP document says that customers broadly favour Azure as their choice to move on-premise SAP S/4HANA to the cloud.

      The YouTube app for Xbox now supports HDR videos
      by João Carrasqueira

      In the summer of 2016, Microsoft introduced the Xbox One S, bringing support for HDR to the Xbox family for the first time. Now, after four and a half years, Google has implemented HDR video support into the YouTube app on Xbox consoles, as reported by FlatpanelsHD (via Windows Central).

      HDR has become a fairly standard feature in modern TVs and every iteration of the Xbox since 2016 has supported it. YouTube itself also added support for HDR videos later that year, so it's certainly interesting that it took this long for those two things to come together.

      It's not completely clear when the capability was added to the YouTube app, but FlatpanelsHD points out that it wasn't available on the Xbox Series X back in December. The report confirms HDR is working on both the Series X and the One S, and there's no reason why it wouldn't also work with the One X and Series S.

      You'll need to make sure you have the latest version of the app for HDR to work, or you can download the app from here if you haven't yet. While HDR support in the YouTube app is good news, it doesn't look like it's working as well as some might hope just yet. The app only supports HDR in videos using Google's VP9, instead of adopting the more modern AV1 format, which has also been backed by Google. Hopefully, a future update will address that issue.

      Microsoft is doubling the price of Xbox Live Gold
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Microsoft announced that it's increasing the price of Xbox Live Gold in a big way. The price of a one-month subscription is increasing by $1 to $10.99, and price of a three-month membership is increasing by $5 to $29.99, and a six-month membership is now $59.99.

      Indeed, $59.99 is the same price that a year of the service used to cost, and for now, you can still get that on Amazon and at other retailers. You'll want to jump on that now though. You can also keep renewing your existing subscription for the same price as before if you have a six-month or annual subscription already.

      Naturally, Microsoft wants gamers to switch to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which was originally meant to combine Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold, and has since added Xbox game streaming and Xbox Game Pass for PC to the value proposition. The company is still offering a deal where it will convert your Xbox Live Gold to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for no charge, up to three years. That means that if you have a year left on your Xbox Live Gold subscription, you can turn that into a year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (yes, that even works if you buy that one-year subscription linked to above right now).

      Microsoft says that in many markets, the price of Xbox Live Gold hasn't changed in years, and in some, over a decade. Indeed, in the United States, the service has been $59.99 a year for quite some time. Many have speculated that Xbox Live Gold might go away at some point in favor of Game Pass, and this price hike might be another step toward that.

      Editor's note: We've added a note indicating that it's still possible to renew existing six-month or 12-month subscriptions at the previous price. We apologize for this oversight.

      UPDATE: Microsoft has backpedaled on the decision to hike the Gold price.
