It was a couple of days ago that we heard about a leak concerning Microsoft’s next Windows update called Windows Blue. If you were wondering just how real it is, well, it’s very real because Microsoft has confirmed that they are working on the next Windows update. This was confirmed when Microsoft was announcing their next Build conference and according to their blog post, they wrote that Microsoft is “working … on plans to advance our devices and services, a set of plans referred to internally as Blue,” although they did point out that it most probably won’t be called Windows Blue upon release. Not surprising since I did sound like a codename to begin with.
According to a hands-on preview of the Windows Blue build, the folks at The Verge discovered numerous changes and updates, especially to the UI in which they likened to Windows Phone where the tiles are smaller, can be resized and the way they are arranged on your screen. It almost feels like we might be able to expect an eventual unification of sorts. They did note that this is an early build so it might not necessarily reflect the final one, but if you’re curious as to what some of the changes are, check out the video above.
