Photos app

Windows 10 universal Photos app has seen an update based on the user feedback. The app will auto-update via the Store (Beta) and will show the version 15.130.1615.0, once updated. You can’t install it manually as the Store (Beta) doesn’t have that ability yet.

Windows 10 Photos app changelog:

Windows Insiders,

In the spirit of frequent updates, we now have our first Store Update of a Windows10 Universal application – the Photos app.  This went out on Friday, and it is likely you have it already!  The Photos app settings page will read version 15.130.1615.0 when it has been updated.

It’s only been 2 weeks since the build 9926, but the changes are based on things we heard from YOU:

One of the top 3 suggestions for us was improving AutoEnhance, with specific comments around some photos turning out a little grainy.  We’ve fine tuned the noise removal algorithm and it is ready for you to try!  (your collection will automatically get the new version of AutoEnhancements, to see the noise reduction you should zoom in on a photo).

We’ve been working hard on perf, specifically around drawing thumbnails in list view.  Most people should see significant improvements in how fast their page of thumbnails is drawn.

And we’ve collected some data that some customers were experiencing crashes, we’ve been through those reports and have fixes that should greatly improve stability for the customers that hit them.
