Insider Build 15240 (Windows 10 Mobile) Available on the Slow Ring

Windows 10 Mobile

After weeks of delay, Microsoft has released Windows 10 Mobile Build 15240 for Windows Insiders in Slow Ring.

Previously available to Insiders on Fast Ring, Build 15240 for Mobile surprisingly added support for Emoji 5.0 and the Chinese Lunar Calendar through the Outlook Calendar app on Windows 10.

If you are a Windows Insider on Mobile receiving Slow Ring builds, you should be able to see the update via Windows Update (Settings >> Update & Security).

What’s New in Build 15240 for Mobile

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).

New emoji include:

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.

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