The folks over at Microsoft are working really hard to get new features into Windows 10 Redstone. The company recently introduced new emojis, improvements for the Action Center, improvements for Cortana, and a lot of improvements for Microsoft Edge. For Mobile, Microsoft also has a tonne of things to show off, which the company is expected to release to Insiders sometime very soon.

In one of the recent internal builds of Windows 10 Mobile Redstone, Microsoft has added some nice new features and improvements. As we previously reported, you will soon be able to get into the Insider program right from the Settings app, without having to download the Windows Insider app on your phone. Microsoft has added a new “Windows Insider Program” option which was previously showing up in one of the public builds of Windows 10 Mobile Redstone (but got removed later), and it is finally working in the recent internal builds. The new option is situated under Update & Security in Settings, and it works just like it does on Windows 10 PCs: you can stop getting Insider builds, roll-in to the Insider program, and switch Insider program rings.

Microsoft has also added some improvements for Settings and the Action Center in the recent internal Redstone builds. In the Settings app, you will now get quick suggestions for Search, without having to go to the detailed view. Additionally, Microsoft also added the ability to turn off notifications for an app, and access apps’ notification setting right from the Action Center in the recent builds as you can see in the screenshots below:

In other news, Microsoft has removed the Skype integration from the Messaging app in the recent internal builds of Windows 10 Mobile as the company is working on a new Skype UWP Preview app for Windows 10.

Microsoft will probably roll these new features and improvements to Insider in the coming weeks. However, we are told that Microsoft will be rolling out Windows 10 Mobile Build 14322 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring sometime very soon (maybe tomorrow), which should also bring some nice new features and improvements. Until then, tell us what you think of the upcoming improvements in the comment section below.
