The Fall Creators Update

13 May 2017

Microsoft Windows 10 will soon enable users to experience Apple Continuity-like features that allow users to start a certain task on one device, and continue the same task on another. Termed as Fall Creators Update, it aims to stylise user experience with not just native Windows tools but also cater to cross-platform systems like Android and iOS. Windows Timeline will enable you to quickly and easily "hop back into files, apps, and sites as if you never left".

MICROSOFT HAS ANNOUNCED the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which brings with it a major design overhaul and updates to Windows Timeline and Microsoft Graph. Now, Windows will be able to support transfers between PC and related apps on iOS and Android devices, Microsoft claims.

That version, Windows 10 S, can only get apps through the store, not directly from third parties such as Apple. This will deliver subtle changes to how the Windows 10 user interface will look including added effects like blurring, depth and layering.

These accessories will work in tandem with Windows Mixed Reality headsets to precisely track movement without having to install hardware markers in the surrounding space.

We'll keep you updated on what else Microsoft has to offer in the coming days with the Build conference.

As with other Windows 10 updates, this will be free for existing Windows 10 users. Microsoft is also adding a new creative app that will allow users to create custom stories through videos and images, combining transitions as well as soundtracks for some special montages.
