Microsoft Reveals New Windows 10
Features coming in fall update.
In a developers conference Microsoft announced that the Fall Creators Update is going to be the Build 2017. One of the big surprises is that iTunes is going to be available at Windows Store along with Autodesk Sketchbook and SAP Digital Boardroom. The update should be finished in September and delivered in October via Windows Update. Although Microsoft only will commit to later this year.
Some of the features of the update will be Microsoft Fluent Design System a new design language. This emphasis adds shading, blur effects, and animations to the Windows interface and to apps.
Windows Story Remix a new Universal Windows app that will be added that blends photos and videos into stories with a soundtrack, theme, and cinematic transitions.
There will also be other new features that work with mobile devices running Microsoft apps on Android and iOS devices.
There will also be an extension to Task View called Timeline, Microsoft says that you will be able to scroll through a time based representation of what you’ve been doing and “hop back into files, apps, and sites as if you never left.”
Cortana will have a feature called Pick Up Where You Left Off which will make it possible to transfer a work from your mobile device to your PC or vice-versa and continue working on it where you left off.
The Clipboard will also work across platforms allowing you to copy and exchange from your mobile device to your PC or vice-versa.
There will be a OneDrive Files On-Demand that you will be able to open File Explorer and see a full representation of all files stored in OneDrive, regardless of whether they’re synced locally or not.
Another feature is Windows Defender Application Guard that will isolate potentially dangerous web content in containers that can’t interact with the rest of the PC or network that uses Hyper-V virtualization.
If you are in the Windows Insider Program most of these feature will be in the June and July preview build giving Microsoft time for development and testing before the fall release.
