Windows 10 Mobile will be better at handling network activity for background apps

If you’re a Windows Phone developer, there’s a cool change coming in Windows 10 Mobile that will allow you to maintain better network connections when your app is suspended. As detailed by an admin on the WPDev Uservoice page, Windows 10 Mobile will allow an app to transfer its sockets to the OS when suspended. From the WPDev UserVoice:

“In Win10 we are introducing a new socket functionality that will allow an application to transfer its socket(s) to the OS when in background or terminated and have the OS brokering the sockets for the application.”

Since apps can’t run in the background on Windows Phones, this essentially means that end users should see less of a delay in receiving notifications from apps that take advantage of this new functionality.

If you’re a Windows Phone developer, feel free to let us know what you think of this change in the comments below.
