What's new in Windows 10 Build 17730?

They have also improved performance on Windows 10 using Cubic, the new default TCP congestion provider.

Your Phone app

Your Phone app is now LIVE. If you are an Android phone user, you can now drag and drop photos from your phone onto your PC. You can now copy, edit, or ink on that photo, right from your PC. With the 'Your Phone' app, you can now get instant access to your Android's most recent photos on your PC. Build 17723+ is highly recommended for the best experience. Android 7.0+ is compatible with 'Your Phone' app.

Aligning the Update experience

Depending on your ring, you will be asked to schedule your restart for the first couple of days, then it will ask if that could automatically schedule restarts outside of your active hours.
