Windows 10 Mobile Build 15240 brings Emoji 5.0 & Chinese Lunar Calendar support

Microsoft has pushed a new Windows 10 Mobile Feature2 Build 15240 for insiders in Fast Ring. This build brings something new to show off unlike most of the Feature2 builds which didn’t add even a single new feature or significant change.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 15240 brings Emoji 5.0 and Chinese Lunar Calendar support. Check the detailed changelog below to read more about it.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 15240 Changelog:

Emoji 5.0: Just like we did on PC, we have added support for the latest Unicode updates – including new snacks, actions, dinosaurs, and even fantasy characters like genies, fairies and zombies – to Windows 10 Mobile in this build. They’re all accessible via both the touch keyboard and the Emoji Panel. We’ve tweaked some of our original emoji designs based on your feedback and to improve consistency with how the emoji is displayed on other platforms (while maintaining our Windows style).

Chinese Lunar Calendar: We have received questions about supporting the Chinese Lunar calendar on Windows 10 Mobile. The power of a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app is that it can run on any Windows-based device. The Calendar UWP app supports the Chinese Lunar calendar on both PC and Mobile. Here’s how you  can enable the calendar on Mobile:

Setting up Chinese Lunar Calendar in the Calendar app.

  1. Launch the Calendar app
  2. Select Settings >Calendar settings
  3. Enable “Alternative Calendars” and select Chinese and Lunar in the dropdowns.

Chinese Lunar Calendar on Windows 10 Mobile.

Et Voila – you have the Chinese Lunar Calendar on your phone!
