What's been fixed, and what hasn't, in Windows 10 Mobile build 14342

Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14342 today. While there were some new features, as usual, there's a long list of fixes and known issues.

The build is from the Redstone Development Branch, which means that it's a preview of the Anniversary Update, which is expected to ship this July.

Microsoft noted that three additional devices are supported for this build: Lumia Icon, BLU Win HD LTE 150e, and BLU Win JR 130e. Of course, the Lumia Icon was added over a week ago, but this is the first new build since then.

Here's what got fixed in Windows 10 Mobile build 14342:

  • We fixed an issue causing installation of mobile builds to fail with Error 80070002.

  • Language and Speech Packs should download without any errors.

  • We have fixed the issue causing DRM-protected content from services like Groove Music, Microsoft Movies & TV, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu to fail on playback with 0x8004C029 or 0x8004C503 errors.

  • We fixed the issue where some users with some non-English keyboards were not able to enter letters such as w, y, and a when typing into the address bar of the Edge browser.

  • We fixed the issue causing your phone to lock up and reboot when it receives a notification from an app that has “Keep notifications private on the lock screen” turned on under Settings > System > Notifications & actions.

  • We increased font size and improved spacing of the data migration page after receiving an update.

  • Polished icons used to identify pages in the Settings app – in particular, updated battery icon to be more consistent with the weight of the other icons.

  • Improved performance when retrieving updated GPS coordinates while driving.

  • Goodbye message on shutdown will now remain visible until the last moment, to make it easier to determine when your device is off.

  • Polished the look of media controls on the Lock screen. When you press one of the media control buttons, it appears “pressed”.

  • We fixed an issue where some apps, including Tweetium, would crash on launch.

  • We fixed an issue where Action Center’s context menus would appear in the wrong orientation if the app underneath was in landscape mode.

  • We fixed an issue where Lumia 435, 532, 535 and 540 would fail to record video, as well as an issue where advanced camera settings were not preserved when taking a photo with the Lumia 435, resulting in the photo being taken with default settings instead.

  • Fixed an issue where the same device might be listed multiple times under Connect.

  • Fixed an issue where quickly pressing the power button twice when Windows Hello is enabled could result in the display appearing stuck off.

  • We fixed the issue where Groove Music might show an error saying “Can’t play – Another app is controlling your sound right now”.

  • When delayed lock is setup, Windows Hello will now say “Swipe up to dismiss the lock screen”, rather than looking for your iris.

  • We fixed an issue where Glance wouldn’t be displayed when hovering hand over proximity sensor.

  • We fixed an issue where multiple UWPs might start crashing on launch after getting stuck on their splash screen.

Here are the known issues:

  • We are investigating issues with some Dual-SIM devices.

  • Feedback Hub is not localized and the UI will be in English (U.S.) only, even with language packs installed.

  • We have reduced the number of instances where boxes are seen when entering emoji. You may still see them in some text fields – we’re working on it!

  • The Settings app may crash when you are re-arranging Quick Actions under Settings > System > Notification & actions. If it does, it could result in one of the Quick Action spots disappearing. If you see this happen, please refrain from changing your Quick Action settings on this build. If you have been impacted by this issue, only a hard reset will revert your Quick Action settings back to default.

Of course, when it comes to Fast ring builds, we do expect bugs; however, it's always a good idea to read through the known issues before installing. That way you know what to expect, or if there's a deal-breaker in there for you.

It is fairly impressive to see how many fixes and how few known issues there are. With the last build - 14332 - there were 10 known issues.
