Windows 10 Mobile comes with metered connections toggle for Offline Maps

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft в Windows 10 Mobile разрешит пользователям скачивать офлайн-карты даже больших размеров через мобильные соединения. Сейчас Windows Phone не позволяет скачивать такие карты через мобильные соединения, только через Wi-Fi.

Windows Insiders that already installed Windows 10 Mobile Technical Preview can already test this new feature, which allows users to download maps for offline use over cellular data.

Windows 10 Mobile comes with metered connections toggle for Offline Maps

According to Reddit user cupiam_veritate, this new Metered connections toggle can be found in Settings / System / Offline Maps, and here is what you can do with it:

“Maps will only be downloaded on free Wi-Fi or unlimited cellular data plans until you turn this on. (You may incur additional charges when using metered connections.)”

Let's hope Microsoft will add other features that offer more control over other aspects of the OS, including the option to download maps on the SD card.

Window 10 Mobile is expected to be released this fall, but until then we will get a taste of what's to come almost each month via Technical Previews.
