Microsoft is rushing out new preview builds for the Redstone 5 branch, now known as the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, as it gets ready for release. Just like build 17754, which was released only two days ago, this build focuses on fixing any outstanding bugs or known issues.
As always, if you are in the Windows Insider program, you can update to the latest Insider build by checking for new Windows updates.
In what could be considered bigger news, Microsoft also released an updated version of the Your Phone app that allows you to view and reply to your text messages received on Android devices directly from your Windows 10 computer.
"No need to dig for your phone to text. Leave it in your pocket, bag, or purse," Microsoft stated in their announcement. "Your Phone app now gives you instant access to your most recent photos and texts from your Android phone. Snap a pic on your Android, see it on your PC. It’s just easier. Text your friends, group message, and type with a keyboard—Your Phone app allows you to view, send, and receive the SMS from your Android, on your computer."
At this time, you will need to open the Your Phone app to reply to messages, but hopefully Microsoft will integrate it further into Windows 10 to make it easier to use. Ultimately, it would make sense to do away with a separate Your Phone app and instead integrate these features directly into the operating system.
For iPhone users, you can still only browse the web on your phone and then send it to your PC to continue reading it. The photo synchronization and SMS integration features are still not available for iOS users at this time.
This updated Your Phone app is available to Insiders in the Fast and Skip Ahead rings.
