Here are the fixes and improvements in Windows 10 Mobile build 14915 [Update]

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14915 for both PCs and phones to the Fast ring. As the company promised, there still isn't much in terms of new front-facing features. In fact, the only new feature listed was Delivery Optimization for app downloads.

Interestingly, the Windows 10 Mobile build did not contain any known issues. Of course, this doesn't mean that there are no issues at all, just none that Microsoft is currently aware of. You'll likely see a couple added over the next few days.

There is, however, a list of fixes and improvements:

  • We fixed the issue causing apps to get stuck in a pending state if you move apps between a SD card and internal storage (either direction).

  • We fixed the issue causing Cortana’s text to speech capabilities to not work. Cortana should be able to read text messages out loud for you, tell jokes, sing, or give verbal prompts as expected.

  • Changing functionality via Settings > Update & security > Windows Insider Program such as your ring settings should now work again on this build. For more information – see this forum post.

  • We fixed a compatibility issue from a recent platform change that causes apps such as Yahoo Mail, Trivia Crack, Google and the Skype Translator Preview app to crash.

  • We made a number of improvements to translations, including fixing an issue with Store app install notifications, where the wrong verb was used in German when letting you know to check out the app.

  • We have updated “You need to fix your MSA” notification toast logic, so it will no longer notify you multiple times in quick succession.

  • We fixed an issue where examining Microsoft Edge’s advanced settings would result in subsequent downloads in Edge saving to the default locations, rather the preferred locations set under Settings > System > Storage.

  • We fixed an issue for Continuum-capable devices that could result in being temporarily unable to connect to a previously paired Windows 10 PC.

  • We have updated the settings for sounds so that .mp3 or .wma files downloaded straight from OneDrive or copied from File Explorer to the phone’s Ringtones folder will now display automatically in the list of available sounds for ringtones, alarms and notifications.

Keep in mind that while there are no known issues in this build, there almost certainly will be some in the next one. It's something to constantly be aware of when running builds from the Insider Program.

To grab build 14915, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Phone update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, go to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Insider Program -> Get started. Once your phone reboots, go back and make sure that you're on the Fast ring, as it will likely start you off on Release Preview.

Update: As Microsoft itself predicted, it has now found a known issue in the Mobile build:

  • ADDED 8/31: You will be unable to download and install additional speech and language packs in this build.
