If you are a fast ring Windows Insiders for Windows 10 Mobile build, you might already have received the 10.0.10586.63. If not, check for updates to get this build. There’s no such visible changes in this build, but a small but useful feature that allows you to copy any text from SMS directly by selecting it.

 

Prior to that, there was no selection mechanism in SMS app. We had to copy the entire text. But in this build, you can select and copy any portion of the string message. Just tap any word, drag the selection indicator as shown below. That’s it! Now click on the copy icon to copy the selected text.
