Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build 14342 brings some changes, new features, lots of fixes and improvements but like always there are some changes which were not covered in the official changelog. After playing with Build 14342 we were able to find some interesting and rather significant changes. If you check the image above you can see the before-after comparison between how the notifications have a changed appearance in Build 14342 as compared to the last build.

You can watch all these unreported changes in action in our Build 14342 hands-on video demo.

And we can add Microsoft Edge’s impressive new HTML5 test score too in the list of unreported changes. Latest Microsoft Edge 14 on Build 14343 scores a high of 463 as compared to Edge 13’s score of 442 on Build 10586.318.

Thanks Rahul for the tip. Cheers!!
