This week’s Insider Fast Ring update isn’t much to look at in terms of features – it is, however, a great treasure of bug fixes; though, there is a new update for the Outlook with a few new features.

Today’s event might show us what is coming for Redstone 2. The Insider builds are hard work – not only for Microsoft but also the Insiders who participate in the program. It might be time to have some bug fixing.

As always, we are going to split the changes into two sections – for PC and Mobile. As said, the features section is going to be quite small for this update.

For the PC

This week’s build brings two new things for the PC – an update to the Outlook Mail UWP app with a few new features, and further refinements to the Narrator – the Narrator have been getting frequent updates in the past few builds.

The Outlook – The UWP app known as ‘Outlook Mail & Calendar’ has received an update; the new additions are @mentions, interactive notifications, and popouts from the 90s. You can read more about these over here.

Narrator has gained Awareness – Not Skynet-level yet, but it’s getting there; the Narrator is now context-aware. As you navigate through various apps, the Narrator can tell what area you are in – such as groups in the Office ribbon interface.

There’re some new controls for this as well, if you want to change the order in which the context is read, here’s what you do:

There’re a few minor improvements to Narrator as well:

Touchpad fixes – Precision Touchpads have been receiving various improvements and updates over the past few weeks in the Fast Ring builds. It is time to fix a few bugs. Here’s what’s fixed:

Protractor improvements – The protractor was introduced with the Stencils update in last week’s Insider Fast Ring build; the major Windows Ink update now demands a few refinements, and that is what it’s getting in this update.

The degree visual for the protractor has been made less-unintuitive. It will now remain visible until you start drawing again, and it’s black text on a white background as opposed to the black text on red background introduced in last week’s build.

For Mobile

Once again, Windows 10 Mobile isn’t getting a lot of new features – but a few minor improvements and bug fixes wouldn’t hurt it. Let’s just go straight to what’s fixed and improved.

That’s it, folks

Not much to gaze upon in this update – except the new features in Outlook. As always, Insiders are expected to provide their valuable feedback and help Microsoft in the battle against bugs.
