Today, we are excited to announce that we have just released the 0.5.0 version of theSpeech SDK. With this update, we have added support forUWP(on Windows version 1709),.NET Standard 2.0(on Windows), andJavaon Android 6.0 (Marshmallow, API level 23) or higher. We have made some feature changes and done some bug fixes. Most notably, we now supportlong-running audioand automatic reconnection. This will make the Speech service more resilient overall, in the event of timeout, network failures or service errors. We’ve also improved the error messages to make it easier to handle the errors. Please visit theRelease Notespage for details. We will continue to add support for more platforms and programming languages, as we work toward making theSpeech SDKgenerally available this fall.
