These are the fixes, improvements, and known issues in Windows 10 Mobile build 15047

While Windows 10 for PCs got two new Fast ring builds this week, Mobile is also getting some love today, as 15047 was released. As you might expect, there aren't many new features, as the Creators Update is right around the corner.

While it's expected to arrive in April with an RTM for Insiders in March, it's still not clear if it will show up for Windows 10 Mobile users at the same time as for PCs. With the Anniversary Update, it took an additional two weeks.

As always, there's a list of fixes, improvements, and one known issue, so here's what got fixed and improved:

  • Adding a new card / paying with an existing card works again Microsoft Wallet.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the play/pause buttons when watching videos in Microsoft Edge taking two taps to work immediately after opening the video full screen.

  • We fixed an issue where the Data Usage page in Settings might be unexpectedly missing info about cellular data usage.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain characters on the Polish keyboard not working in Continuum when typing in the Microsoft Edge address bar.

  • Cortana’s background is now black rather than the previous dark grey.

  • We fixed an issue where after some time the -word option might stop appear in the candidate pane for words added to the typing dictionary.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in task switcher being unexpectedly slower to launch in recent flights.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in a flicker on certain devices, such as the Lumia 950, when interacting with the Maps app after rotating the phone into landscape mode.

  • We fixed an issue where dragging the position indicator in the video progress slider in Microsoft Edge would back to 0 upon release.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in notifications from SIM 2 on dual SIM phones not appearing in the Action Center.

Here is the known issue:

  • Speech packs may be unable to download on this build.

The ability to download speech packs can be important for many Windows phone users, as it's popular among fans to use phones from different regions (for example, using a Lumia 930 in the United States). The workaround for this is to make sure you have the necessary speech packs before you upgrade to the new build; however, be aware that this has been an issue for several builds now.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can get today's build by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Phone update -> Check for updates. If not, go to the Windows Insider Program tab, tap 'Get started', and when your phone reboots, go back and set it to the Fast ring.
