Microsoft rilascia una nuova build (18908) di Windows 10 20H1 | Insider

Con un Windows 10 19H1 in fase di rilascio, Microsoft ha già iniziato internamente a lavorare su un nuovo grande update (nome in codice 20H1) e proprio in queste ore ha provveduto a rilasciare la nuova build per gli utenti Insider iscritti al canale Fast ring.

Ricordiamo che Microsoft è già a lavoro su Windows 10 20H1 (previsto nella prima metà del 2020) in quanto alcune cose che saranno implementate richiedono tempi di sviluppo lunghi, per questo ha deciso di passare a questa versione di sviluppo (Microsoft inizierà invece a rilasciare le prime build di Windows 10 19H2 questa primavera).

Per quanto riguarda le modifiche apportate oltre alla correzione di diversi bug porta novità per l’app Your Phone (nuove opzioni di accessibilità, icona per selezionare la lingua della tastiera, supporto a nuovi telefoni: Galaxy A8 e Galaxy A8+, possibilità di inviare e ricevere MMS, possibilità di attivare la sincronizzazione delle foto/messaggi/notifiche anche utilizzato la rete cellulare e nuova icona associata all’applicazione).

Di seguito le modifiche segnalate:

Your Phone app – Introducing even more new features

We’re bringing multiple new features to the Your Phone app in this build. Try them out and let us know what you think.

Phone screen – Accessibility features, keyboard language and layout, new phone models

We’re pleased to preview two new accessibility features – screen reading and focus tracking – as well as the ability to easily switch your Android phone’s keyboard language or layout while in phone screen.

Screen reading

For users of TalkBack, you can now enable the Your Phone Companion accessibility service, found under your Android phone’s accessibility settings, for smoother cross-device reading. Once both TalkBack and the Your Phone Companion accessibility services are turned on, Narrator will play from your PC, describing what you select and activate on your phone screen as you interact using your PC’s keyboard or mouse.

Focus tracking

You will now be able to interact with your Android phone’s apps at your preferred magnification while in phone screen. Focus tracking will seamlessly follow your keyboard focus and mouse pointer input.

To enable the focus tracking accessibility feature, you must first turn on the Your Phone Companion accessibility service and TalkBack on your Android phone. Once these services are enabled, you can turn on Magnifier on your PC using the shortcut: Windows Key and the Plus sign (+) or open the app from your Windows menu.

Keyboard language and layout

You will notice a new icon on your phone screen toolbar. Selecting this icon will take you to the phone settings page, where you can change your keyboard language or layout. This setting is specific to physical keyboards, so it only applies when you’re typing into your phone from your PC and will not change your phone’s language or keyboard configuration. If you type in different languages or like to switch your keyboard layout, give it a try.

Your Phone can now sync over mobile data

Colorful new icons

We’re also introducing a new look for both Your Phone and Your Phone Companion, to make them truly feel like part of the Windows family. The Your Phone Companion icon has started to hit phones already, and the Your Phone icon will arrive on Windows PCs in the coming days.

These features will gradually roll out to Insiders on 19H1 builds or newer, so it may take a few days to see them on your PC.

We’d love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think by reporting issues under Your Phone > Settings > Send feedback.
