It has been known for a while now that Microsoft is going to release another major Windows 10 update later this year. It turns out that the company is going to carry over the name that it used for the first major Windows 10 update it released this year. 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.
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update was announced by Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s executive vice president of the Windows and devices group. Several new features will be introduced with this update.
One of the new features is called Timeline. It’s going to give users a visual timeline which shows them what they were doing and when. What this means, basically, is that users can start working in an app on one machine and pick up right where they left off on another device.
Even Cortana will be able to understand that the user is working on different machines, be it a PC or phone. “Imagine logging off your PC and having the doc you were editing pop up on your phone,” Myerson asked, adding that Cortana will ask users if they want to pick up where they left off in the app, doc or website.
More features will be detailed in the coming days. Microsoft has also said that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is going to bring a new look and feel to the OS as well which has been categorized as the “Fluent Design System.” The new UI is going to implement a common user interface across different devices.
No release date has been announced as yet, but Microsoft says that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is going to be released later this year.
