Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Preview Build 14931

Microsoft on Wednesday released a new Windows Insider preview, Build 14931 for Fast Ring members. It includes support for USB Audio 2.0, updates to the Maps app, and more.


Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14931

Here’s a look at some of the new features according to Microsoft:

  • Native support for USB Audio 2.0: We now have native support for USB Audio 2.0 devices with an inbox class driver! This is an early version of the driver that does not have all features enabled, for e.g.: only playback (render) is supported with this version. Recording (capture) support is scheduled to arrive in later iterations. We encourage you to play with the driver and let us know what you think (using the Feedback app). If you already have third-party drivers for your USB Audio 2.0 device installed, follow instructions in this blog post to switch to using the inbox class driver.
  • Send SMS with Skype Preview: You can now try out sending and receiving SMS and MMS messages directly from a Windows 10 PC when Skype on their Windows 10 Mobile phone is set as the default messaging app. Give it a try and let us know what you think. For more details, see this blog post from the Skype Team.


  • Maps App Update: The Maps app was updated to version 5.1609.2580.0+ last week. You can now you can check the traffic to your Home or Work locations at any time by tapping the Traffic icon in the app bar. You will see traffic conditions to Home and Work and your most recently viewed traffic cameras so that you can stay on top of the road conditions along your route.
  • Feedback Hub Update: Feedback Hub has been updated to version 1.1608.2441.0. This update contains some highly requested features from Windows Insiders including dark mode, showing the original feedback author in the feedback details, and a settings page for Feedback Hub. To enable dark mode, just go into settings in Feedback Hub.

    MICROSOFT 10 AU VER. 1607 is excellent. I have not found any difficulties with this OS on my PC Dell XPS8500 64bit.
    I am happy with the upgrade and I have all my devices compatible with this OS.
    Congrats to Microsoft for this Windows Version.
