Windows 10 First Technical Preview for Phones Now Available for Download

Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Technical preview for phones. If you are planing to try the Windows 10 Technical preview, you need to enroll for Windows insider program first. and download the windows insider app in your phone. You can download the windows insider app from the windows phone store. Once you finish installing the app, you have to sign up.

The Windows 10 technical preview available for Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 636, Lumia 638, Lumia 730, and Lumia 830 devices.

Let's find out what the preview includes

  • Full-size Background Image for Start: We believe phones should be intensely personal – so we’ve added another option to customize the start screen with a full-size background image.
  • More Quick Actions in Action Center: We’ve increased the number of quick actions available to you. Windows Phone 8.1 has four programmable quick actions – but with Windows 10 you also get an expanded view that can now have up to three rows.
  • Interactive Notifications: Notifications are now interactive, allowing you to take action directly like dismissing an alarm, or seeing images for maps. For example, for text messages, when the toast pops, you can quickly reply inline via text or voice.
  • Significantly enhanced speech-to-text capability: You can talk to virtually any data field you choose. Your words show up as you speak them – and punctuation appears automatically.  This feature is smart enough to understand when to use ‘two’ – the number — instead of ‘too’ as in ‘also’.
  • More powerful Photos app: From your very first launch, Photos will show the aggregated set of all your local photos and all your OneDrive photos

Announcing the news, Microsoft's Engineering General Manager, Gabriel Aul, in a blog post said, "This is the earliest publicly available preview we've ever done for Windows on phones. This preview is still very much under development and you're going to see some rough edges. We're sharing it with you so you can be with us at every step, and provide your feedback to help make this the best release ever-because it's the one made for you."
