    Thanks, I think it now uses the 'Nokia' camera app by default, right?
    I had Lumia Camera and the built in Camera. By default my phone was set to use Lumia Camera, but I switched to Camera.

    Boy the new Camera app fast! Almost instant. Once loaded it is instant (from quick access toolbar).

    I think, but this needs confirming, that when you use the edit box voice dictation, there is a nice feature:

    If it gets a word wrong in a dictated sentence, when you click on the word the auto-complete line shows other possible interpretations of the word for you to select to easily correct its mistake.
    Cortana does this in 8.1. But yes it is true.

    I don't have the W10 desktop preview. So I never used the new Universal apps. The Calculator is a beast now! Has damn near every possible calculator you will ever need
    Well, I'd like to see a financial calculator, with options for amortizations, etc. I also want to see it have a tip calculator as part of it.

    Consider it confirmed.

    Well, was hoping to get away from 3rd party calculator apps. I've had about 4 installed. I'm now able to uninstall 2 of them. I still have to have the financial calculator and the tip calculator.

    In the Photos Hub when you select multiple files, its possible to select videos too. Previously it was not possible to select/delete multiple videos at once.

    There is also a vertical tile size available in addition to the big 4x4. So far I have only found it present in for the People tile but it is indeed there. Try changing the tile size of the People app. One of them is a 90 degree rotation of double-wide!!

    Huh, I saw that somewhere and I thought the person meant 4x4. A vertical tile, that's a first in the entire windows ecosystem right?

    They specifically said in the blog post that the majority of the work in this TP went into the foundation and the UI changes are coming later. Anyone who thinks that the current state is an indication of the final UI is being foolish.
    Can't really comment on something that does not exist, so comments are about what is there, whether it is liked or not.

    Yes, this is a first for the entire Windows ecosystem unless you consider those registry hacks in W10 desktop from ~November where people "turned on" an early Continuum feature that showed a strangely formatted start menu with vertical live tiles.

    - Skype and other messaging integration (again).
    ​This isn't there yet is it?

    I know the reply from the notification functionality is there and it works really nicely. But the "messaging Hub" feature of the skype/fb/sms all in one was great on wp7. I cant wait for that to return. I hope more services will be available to integrate into the messaging app (AIM, whatsapp, etc.)

    Not sure - at this point I'm almost too embarrassed to admit that I haven't installed the preview. :D (L1520 user..)

    Gotcha. Well I can confirm that the messaging app integration isn't there yet. But the reply from notification center is.

    Thanks, moved to the 'not yet' section as 'Universal messaging app'. Apparently this will be a store app, not included in OS. It still feels like part of the Win10/WP10 push so I'll leave it in the list.

    The item "dictation via keyboard anywhere you can type (Speech To Text, STT)".

    This could possibly be renamed "Continuous dictation via keyboard anywhere you can type (Speech To Text, STT)"

    Unlike older Cortana, if you pause it does a full stop and listens for the next sentence. You can also speak grammar "comma" etc. inline. It understands the context of numbers like "2", "too", to" etc. It is very much a big step up in continuous dictation.
