    Microsoft tests three new features for Windows 10’s Your Phone app


    When Microsoft introduced Windows 10’s Your Phone app in October 2018, the app only allowed users to access all of the phone photos and send/receive text messages directly from your connected desktop. In the past few months, Microsoft has updated the application with multiple improvements.

    Microsoft recently announced three useful features for Windows 10’s Your Phone app that would allow it to work better with Android devices. The latest update for Insiders introduces a feature that will allow you to tag your SMS messages with contact photos if those contacts are already synced to your device.

    “You asked for it Windows Insiders. We have now started rolling out contact pictures in Your Phone. So if you have photos assigned to your contacts on your Android phone you’ll see those same photos for them in the app,” a Microsoft engineer announced the latest development on Twitter.

    There’s another useful feature for Insiders that basically let users reply to text messages without opening the Your Phone app. This means when you receive notification of the text messages on your desktop, you should be able to reply to the SMS by directly typing the text on the interactive notification.

    “Windows Insiders one more feature for you that we have added to messages in Your Phone: Inline reply! You can now reply to your text messages from the notification without having to open the app,” Microsoft employee confirmed the feature on Twitter.

    The third feature is available for non-Insiders and it basically lets you right-click any photos and save it directly into your PC. Previously, the right-click menu only allowed users to copy & share photos.

    Microsoft testing blue light reduction feature for Windows 10

    "Microsoft is slowly revealing new features in its next major update to Windows 10, and it appears blue light reduction feature might be a future addition. The software giant released a new build of Windows 10 testers yesterday with very few visible additions, but Windows enthusiasts have already started picking it apart for clues on new features. Twitter user "Core"has discovered references to a "BlueLightReduction" setting deep within the next major update to Windows 10 (codenamed Redstone 2). It appears to be a setting that will be toggled from the Action Center (notification center) in the operating system.

    F.lux has been the most popular option for Windows users looking to reduce blue light in the evenings, but Microsoft's own native toggle will bring this feature to every Windows 10 user. Apple has also integrated a similar feature in iOS 9, but it hasn't announced any plans to bring blue light reduction to Mac OS yet. Microsoft only appears to be testing the feature right now, so there's no guarantee it will ship in the update due early next year. If Microsoft does implement it fully then it will presumably be available on the mobile version of Windows 10, too.

    New Phone Insider app for Windows 10 preview for Phones?


    Unfortunately, at the moment, there's no way to sign into the app, which would suggest that it's not ready for the public to fully check out.

    Microsoft already has a Preview for Developers app for Windows Phone 8.1 that allows users to download new builds of the OS before they are made available to wireless carriers. This new app would seem, at first glance, to be something different. However, we stress that Microsoft has yet to officially state they are launching a preview version of Windows 10 for smartphones. So take this speculation (and everyone else's) with a grain of salt.
