Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16251 is available to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring today.

Microsoft claim that this latest Creators update will empower customers with "mixed reality ready-PCs", which can be paired with "affordable" Windows headsets and motion controllers for a "rich and immersive experience across creativity tools, productivity, games and entertainment". Both of these feature releases will get updates and fixes, including security fixes, for 18 months starting from the date of release.

Microsoft said you can now link your Android smartphone to your Windows 10 PC; the company plans to expand this support to iOS devices "very soon". Microsoft officials said support for this with iPhones is "coming very soon".

Mary Jo Foley over at ZDNet reported last night that "Microsoft also added a feature that allows users to link their phones to PCs".

This is one of many features that Microsoft plans on using to bind Windows 10 with Android and iOS for cross-device interoperability.

After the phone is linked, users can start browsing the Web on their phones.

As readers might expect, the Windows update will include an updated version of the program called Paint 3D, so all is not completely lost. There's also Windows Phone but as you all know, it's not exactly popular right in the mobile game. There are newer bikes with far more sophisticated technology and more powerful engines - yes, but the adrenaline that you feel on the iconic and vintage RX 100 is unmatchable. Once invoked, it will first ask you to sign in with your Microsoft Account. With the new build, you don't need Cortana, but Microsoft will ask you to install a "Microsoft Apps" for Android app that bridges the two devices. This is a follow-up to the company's previous Apple Continuity-like feature for Windows 10. A link for the same is sent via SMS when you initiate the linking process.

Windows 10 Mobile build 15235 skipped support for the new "link your phone" feature for Windows Phones.

The idea is that you can easily browse from the phone and share the experience on your PC. There are other new features in Build 16251.
