In the latest preview version of Windows 10 Mobile (build 14356), testers can enable notifications to sync up to their PCs.

According to US -based analytics vendor Net Applications, Windows 10 powered 19.4% of all Windows PCs in May, a 2.1-point increase from the month before. The phone joins AT&T's Lumia 640 as the latest to be updated to Windows 10 Mobile via the standard over-the-air method.

Based on a conversation over email between a Samsung customer and the firms' tech support, published by The Register, a number of issues with crucial drivers leaves Samsung no choice but to recommend users ignore the upgrade.

I've asked Microsoft is this behavior change is intentional, and if so, whether the company is continuing to claim that users are in control of when and if they update to Windows 10 (a claim which I'd say is false at this point). If you own Verizon's Lumia 735, go to Settings Update & security Phone update then tap on Check for updates to achieve the same goal.

Finally, anyone with Windows 10 will be able to take advantage of Windows Hello with a simple addition to their computer.

The 2.1-point rise in user share was the second largest one-month gain for Windows 10, bested only by August 2015's whopping 5.3 percentage points.

Some of my ZDNet colleagues think whining Windows users should just shut up and update to Windows 10.

Certainly, the fact that Microsoft is now evaluating this build is no confirmation that it would also hit the public rings, but for the moment, it looks like development of new Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile builds and updates is going at a really fast pace. Because the USA has been a stronghold of Windows 10, the smaller increase measured by DAP may be due to the already-brisk uptake of the new OS, and thus a smaller pool of customers who haven't accepted the free offer. Of course, this would be aimed only at users running the stable version of Windows 10 and who aren't part of the Insider program.
