Here are the fixes, improvements, and known issues in Windows 10 Mobile build 14955

It's a new week, which means that there's a new build from the Windows 10 Development Branch available. That build is 14955, and it's available for PCs and phones.

It's pretty light on new front-facing features, so unfortunately, it doesn't contain any of the new Continuum features that were announced at Microsoft's Ignite 2016 conference. They may show up in next week's build, however, as the company is expected to unveil more of Redstone 2 at its big event tomorrow.

As always, there is a long list of fixes and improvements, as well as a few known issues. Here's what got fixed and improved:

  • We fixed the issue causing you to be unable to sign into apps such as Feedback Hub, Groove, MSN News, etc. with your Microsoft Account if you sign out or get signed out of these apps.

  • We fixed the issue that was causing some devices to appear “stuck” on the blue Windows logo screen during the boot cycle when rebooting a phone on earlier builds.

  • We fixed a bug resulting in notifications banners not appearing from Outlook Mail accounts that had been pinned as tiles to Start.

  • We fixed an issue resulting certain apps being unexpectedly missing from the Share dialog.

  • We fixed an issue where Insiders who had configured a data limit on their phone may have ended up in a state where they would receive frequent notifications about having exceeded that limit.

  • We fixed an issue where the horizontal progress dots (as displayed when using the indeterminate ProgressBar control, for those who are familiar with XAML) were incorrectly fading out at the right side.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to enter input into the Time or Place fields when creating a Reminder in Cortana.

Here are the known issues:

  • If your device never successfully updated to Build 14951, please see this forum post. If your device did receive Build 14951, you should be able to download and update to this build just fine. THANK YOU Insiders who helped us with getting the 0% download issue fixed last week!

  • Some Insiders are receiving an 0x80242006 error trying to update to the latest builds. We are investigating – see this forum post.

  • You will be unable to install additional languages, keyboards, and speech packs on your phone for the next few weeks. If you have existing languages, keyboards, and speech packs installed – they will carry over when you update to new builds. You just can’t install any new ones. If you do a hard reset of your phone on these builds – you will also be unable to install additional languages, keyboards, and speech packs. You can use Windows Device Recovery Tool to go back to Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile, install any languages, keyboards, and speech packs you need and then update to the latest build in the Fast ring as a workaround.

  • Excel Mobile will freeze after adding sheets and eventually crashes.

One of our three Fast ring test devices isn't seeing the build just yet. We've reached out to Microsoft and the company is trying to work out what the issue might be, although it appears that it isn't specific to a certain model Windows phone.

To grab today's build, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Phone update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and tap Get started. When your phone reboots, go back and make sure that it's in the Fast ring.
