More from Build: Microsoft unveils cross-device vision for Windows 10

Posted Мая 11, 2017

Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices: a new design system; creative experiences that will move with you across Windows, iOS and Android; new apps coming to the Windows Store - including iTunes; new tools that make Windows home for all developers; and the world's first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers - no markers required.

The upshot is that the company built upon the personal computer may have finally crossed the chasm into today's multi-device world. "Microsoft essentially has fully embraced the usage model of moving between phone, tablet, PC, Mac, game console and in the future AR and VR headsets, regardless of the operating system", said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst with Moor Insights & Strategy.

HomeHub will be Microsoft's answer to the Amazon Echo and its growing popularity, aiming to create a family environment for a Windows 10 PC where all family members would get shared access to apps, calendars, and a new welcome screen.

This includes Microsoft's HoloLens mixed reality headset. Microsoft's operating system will now include elements of transparency and animation that it previously lacked. These skills are now available Windows 10, Android, iOS and the Harman Kardon's new Cortana-powered Invoke speaker.

Microsoft just wrapped up its day-two Build 2017 keynote, and this is the one that was filled with news that's more important to consumers and the company's loyal fans.

One of the new features is called Timeline. Its lofty goal is in hopes of making Windows 10's footprint too large for developers to ignore with regards to creating Universal Windows Apps. Cortana asks if you want to pick up where you left in your app, doc or website. The same goes for content saved onto the clipboard.

Microsoft will employ the activity data collected along the way to support Timeline, a feature for bringing up old application sessions. What's more, developers will also be able to personalize their users' experiences by leveraging Cortana's own understanding of users' preferences and context. The Windows 10 Preview SDK build 16190 can be used with any Windows Insider Preview build (16190 or greater) and contains numerous bug fixes and other development changes to APIs. Windows 10 is getting another update, and that's just ONE of the major announcements Microsoft made at its Build 2017 developers conference. We are working with developers to create this new frontier in computing and want any developer to get a Windows Mixed Reality dev kit. "But they don't, and they've moved to a higher level", he said. The next update is going to be called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and it's going to bring several new features for the platform. The most notable addition is Xamarin Live Player, which provides the ability to pair an Apple Inc. iOS or Google Inc.
