Here are the known issues with Windows 10 Mobile build 10149

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Mobile build 10149 for insiders on fast ring. It brings a number of UI improvements like of Microsoft Edge browser, more actions in the action center and much more. Being an insider preview build, as you would expect, it does include bugs. But don't worry, the guys at Microsoft are already aware of the issues that might hit pre/post upgrade, and we can get to learn them.

Here are some known issues

  • There is an issue where the Install button doesn’t respond after Build 10149 is downloaded. Make sure the battery is charged > 40% and press it again.
  • The Insider Hub is removed in this build. Don’t worry, it will be back in future Insider Preview builds.
  • Sometimes the PIN keypad won’t be shown after swiping up to unlock. The workaround is to swipe down to get to Action Center and try to open a notification or Settings to invoke the PIN keypad to unlock your phone.
  • There is a very rare situation where you are unable to unlock your phone after entering your PIN and it keeps letting you type even though you entered your pin correctly. If you hit this – leave the phone alone 1-2 hours before trying to unlock again. This is caused by a TPM issue that could get worse and require you to reflash if you get into this state and power off the phone.
  • If a Gmail account is set up on the phone, the Messaging app may have issues and both incoming and outgoing messages may not work. If this issue is hit, simply reboot your phone to get it working again. We are aware that the Messaging app may behave badly in this state.
  • There is a known issue where apps or games are installed as trial versions even though you have previously purchased them. In-app purchases on Windows 10 Mobile are not functional yet as we migrate the function to the new Windows Store.
  • In certain cases, the colors in some apps may appear off. For example – the titlebar in the Outlook Mail app is orange.
  • There might be some cases where notifications in Action Center appear blank.

We’ve been using this build internally for a few days and have really loved it. It is faster, more stable, and more polished overall and has been lots of fun for us to see come together. For me personally, I’ve been thrilled to see a bunch of changes get completed that you’ve been asking for. It reminds me why I’m so excited about the Windows Insider program and being able to hear your input to help us shape the product.- Gabe
