Cortana gets new listening animation and more in Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14356


The new Windows 10 boss Dona Sarkar has just pushed the Big Red Button and released a new Windows 10 Mobile Insider build for those of you in the Fast Ring. Here’s what’s new in build 14356:

Get notifications from your phone to your PC: Cortana will now surface your phone notifications and critical alerts, including messages from messaging services, SMS or social media as well as missed calls from any Windows 10 phone or Android device to your PC, so you never miss a beat while staying focused on your PC.

Send a photo from your phone to PC: If you need to quickly transfer a photo from your phone to your PC wirelessly – just ask Cortana “send this photo to my PC” and see what happens. This feature is currently exclusive to Windows 10 phones.

New listening animation: When you tap the mic icon in Cortana, there is a new animation that shows Cortana is listening to you as you speak.
