Microsoft has launched a new Windows 10 Insider Preview build today, bringing a pretty standard collection of new features, bug fixes, and known issues to those who are currently on the Fast Ring.
The main new feature that Windows 10 build 10565 brings is proper Skype integration. Through the built-in Messaging and Phone apps, as well as through the Skype app, Windows 10 users can now message, call and video chat with their Skype contacts in a seamless fashion. You can even quick reply to messages through the Windows 10 action center without opening the Skype app.
Microsoft Edge gets two new features in build 10565: Tab Preview, which shows previews of webpages when you hover over open tabs; and the ability to sync your favorites and reading list between devices. The latter feature is still a work in progress, but it should at least work in this new build.
Cortana can now understand inked notes that you've taken on a pen- or touch-enabled device, which allows the digital assistant to set reminders based on what you've inked. You'll also be reminded of movie times and other ticketed events based on email confirmations, with Cortana providing information two hours ahead of time on how to get to your event on time.
And finally, Windows 10 build 10565 brings several UI improvements, including more vibrant title bars, improved context menus in the Start menu, and new icons for devices and the Registry Editor.
If you're an Insider and want to check out the latest Windows 10 Preview build, this new build should be available through Windows Update now, provided you're on the Fast Ring.
