    How about the personalization bug, the one that pops up when you choose the tile option and then use a pic in the background just like we have in wp 8.1, but the image is then placed within the individual tile, is it fixed yet,
    That's been fixed for the last couple builds. Start screen backgrounds work perfectly now.

    Glance works...

    Gesture Beta I haven't tried.. Kinda forgot about that.

    It's weird that you have this problem.. Which build are you one? I had the exact same problem in 166, but not with the latest.
    Nokia 930 - build 10512

    I need to be able to add a song to my phone via file explorer and have it actually show up in my groove music collection.
    When I do this, I go to 'Songs' in Groove Music, and it adds them.

    The photo auto-upload to Onedrive does indeed work in the background, just not as timely as it once did before.
    II turned off backup, restarted, and then turned it back on and now it is working! Thanks for the info!

    I hope that this becomes more immediate in future builds, but I can live with it as is.

    I've had to do that with Xbox Music in 8.1 as well. Nothing new, I don't believe.

    I beg to differ, I think 10 is visually aweomse. both on notebook and phone. I have yet to use it on a tablet so I cannot comment on it.

    My biggest (only?) serious problem with 8.1 is its inability to store maps on the SD card. Has that been fixed in Windows Phone 10?

    I think you're missing the point that the code between Windows 10 (desktop) and Windows 10 (mobile) is shared quite extensively. Imagine the code that manages WiFi connections: instead of two completely separate codebases, they're now one, diverging only where they need to. From a developer's perspective, the APIs will all be the same. Windows 10 is Windows 10 mobile.
    That is causing some of the current issues IMHO. Much of what made WP 8.1 great seems to have been forgotten in the process of unifying.

    I believe you can have both but they seem to be neglecting ease of use and smartphone specific features. The past few builds seem to have solidified that direction.

    I want them to fix DLNA. It is not usable at all at the moment. They prevent installation of Play To app which worked perfectly after upgrade to W10M from WP8.1. But after resetting, the app vanishes and there's no option to install.

    If streaming/casting is integrated in the File Manager and Media applications, that woud be great. Just like it works on Windows 10 PC with File Explorer and Film and TV app. This integration should have been extended to Photos and Groove apps too on both PC and Mobile.

    I think they mentioned that was one of the things going away. It wouldn't be an MS upgrade without fewer features and apps, lol.

    But in all seriousness, it would be nice to see this at the system level like apple does it in iOS. Leaving it to an app to implement is not the way to go.

    Microsoft went out of their way to start a support thread because of the issue so it's definitely something new and significant. I'm not the only one who can't add songs and merely opening the app isn't the solution for me or any of the other people posting in that thread. They even started an article on this site talking about it and linking to the thread.
