Windows 10 Mobile to get Audio Routing feature in the latest Redstone build

Windows 10 Mobile to get Audio Routing feature in the latest Redstone build
The latest internal Redstone build of Windows 10 Mobile reveals a new feature that allows the user to decide where the sound from a call or video is going to be routed to. Called Audio Routing, it allows the Windows Phone user to select whether audio from a phone call or video will play over Bluetooth, or the phone's speaker.

Another new feature allows the speaker phone to turn on automatically once you move the handset away from your ear while listening to a phone call. The Audio Routing option should end up on handsets belonging to Windows Insiders sometime over the next several weeks.

The Windows 10 Mobile update started getting pushed out to Windows Phone handsets last week. As we recently told you, 50% of the active Windows Phone handsets are going to be sitting out the update. That includes the most popular Windows Phone of all time, the entry level Nokia Lumia 520.

Damn, Windows Phones never even had this extremely ancient feature!? There's a whole lot more compromises than I thought, beyond apps and UI customization that were already enough to keep me away from Windows mobile...or was there some fancy alternative they were using in place of this feature?

Ancient? Was it available in Symbian?, Windows Mobile? Never seen any feature native to the OS like Audio Routing.

Don't try so hard. the fact that you've never tried the platform, shows you're just spewing popular opinion.

Have you sucked d**k before? How can you know it's bad when you haven't tried it?

@87186 Do you even hear yourself? And what makes you say MrElectrifyer has never tried the Windows Mobile patform? Try being sensible.

Wow. Post number two of mine that you're jocking. Haha will I be getting billed for this physical? Last person that dangled from my genitals so intently was my physician. Again reading comprehension seems to elude you. He said himself "keeping my away from this platform" Have a nice day and find a new crusade.

Too little too late. As always.

For everyone trolling here, WIndows 8.1 had this feature and Windows 10Mobile removed it. Now, they are adding it again.

"The latest internal Redstone builds of Windows 10 Mobile reveal a NEW FEATURE " If what you are saying is correct, then It is the article that started the trolling.

It is new to win10 Mobile, windows 8.1 a different OS had it. Yes the author could have probably differentiated it.

Alan F. trolling Windows Mobile ? Never. I mean he *never* has a bad word or veiled insult to say about Windows. He's the most unbiased "journalists" I've ever encountered.

W10 mobile is stuck somewhere in between Symbian and Android. Basically no improvements compared to 8.1 on NL1520. Lags a bit.

I have no lags on my L950, even on the insider builds.

If you think there is no improvements...then you are using it wrong or just weird. I can instantly tell the improvements. yes I have 2 1520's, one on 8.1 and the other on redstone build
