Two days ago Microsoft released the Windows 10 Build 18362.10005 preview update for the Slow Ring, allowing third-party voice assistants like Amazon Alexa to work properly on the lock screen. Today, Microsoft released the preview version of Windows 10 Build 18362.10006, but Microsoft said that not all Slow Ring users will get this update.
According to Microsoft’s updated support documentation, the main updates for Windows 10 Build 18362.10006 are as follows:
- Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios This update includes 5 fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation.
- A fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS.
- Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from in-tune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users.
- A change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.
