Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 build to users in the Fast ring as it advances the work towards the next major OS feature update codenamed 19H1.
Windows 10 build 18277 comes with Focus Assist improvement, as the OS now turns on automatically whenever you’re running anything in full screen.
Focus Assist is a feature that silents notifications when playing games or watching movies, and Windows 10 has been trained to automatically determine when it needs to kick in.
Additionally, the Action Center now comes with further refinements, including a brightness slider, which has been one of the most requested Windows 10 features for several versions now.
New Emoji coming in 19H1
Emoji 12 is also coming to Windows 10, and Microsoft says it’s currently working on implementing a refined back for 19H1 users.
“The complete list of emoji for the Emoji 12 release is still in Beta, so Insiders may notice a few changes over the coming flights as the emoji are finalized. We have a bit more work to do, including adding search keywords for the new emoji, and adding a few emoji that aren’t finished yet,” Microsoft says.
There are additional High DPI improvements too, including setting by default a feature that allows Windows to try to fix apps that look blurry on the screen.
Windows Defender Application Guard also comes with an additional toggle to manage access to camera and microphone while browsing with Application Guard for Microsoft Edge.
“If this is managed by enterprise admins, users can check how this setting is configured. For this to be turned on in Application Guard for Microsoft Edge, the camera and microphone setting must already be turned on for the device in Settings > Privacy > Microphone & Settings > Privacy > Camera,” Microsoft further adds.
There are additional improvements in this build, as well as several known issues, and you can check out the full change log below.
