Here are the fixes, improvements, and known issues in Windows 10 Mobile build 14965

This week's Fast ring build is now available for PC and Mobile, bringing the build number to 14965. The Preview contained a number of minor new features, but they mostly applied to PCs.

Sadly, we're still waiting on all of the Continuum features that Microsoft announced at its Ignite 2016 conference in September. These included the ability to use the experience more like a PC, such as windowed apps, which the feature still doesn't support natively.

As usual, there's a list of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here are the fixes and improvements for the Mobile build:

  • We fixed an issue where, when using Cortana in French (France or Canada), the “Prendre une ” (take a picture, video, or selfie) command was redirecting to a Bing search rather than opening the Camera app as expected.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Cortana crashing if you typed “Create an appointment” then tapped on the resulting suggestion to “Create an appointment”.

  • We improved the performance for English (India) text prediction.

  • We fixed an issue in Data Usage Settings, where after selecting the data plan to be unlimited, it would still prompt to set a limit. We’ve also made it easier in the Data Usage Settings for those with dual SIM phones to differentiate between the cellular data use on each SIM, and fixed a few other polish issues, including that the sort by dropdown on the Usage Details page was unexpectedly wide.

  • We fixed an issue where Narrator wasn’t giving feedback when adjusting sliders, for example in Settings, or in the Volume flyout.

  • We fixed a migration issue resulting in Microsoft Edge to fail to launch for some Insiders after updating to a new build.

Here are the known issues:

  • If you used the previous ‘date change’ workaround to update to Build 14951 or Build 14955: Please don’t use it any longer! The Microsoft account (MSA) ticket on your device needs to expire and then you’ll be offered today’s build. If you changed your date by 30 years… you’ll want to do a device reset.

  • 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.

It's important to take note of the latter known issue here. Microsoft said that it is "slightly" delaying language packs for the PC build, but the Mobile language packs are going to be a few weeks. This means that this will be an issue for the next few Fast ring builds.

To install build 14965, 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. Once your phone reboots, go back and make sure that you're on the Fast ring.
