The Timeline continuity feature for Windows 10 was detailed by Microsoft earlier this year. The feature was supposed to be included in the Fall Creators Update but the company needed more time to polish it. Therefore, the feature’s release was delayed. It was confirmed last month that the Windows 10 Timeline feature would be available for Insiders soon. Members of the Insiders program can now start testing the Timeline feature.
The Timeline continuity feature will enable Windows 10 users to easily switch between multiple devices, even Android and iOS devices. Microsoft built a Timeline view into the Task View feature for Windows 10. It shows an overview of the apps running across Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices.
Users just need to visit the Tas View and resume what they were doing on another device. It can be going back to a particular website from another Windows 10 computer or putting the final touches to an email they started writing using the Outlook app on their iOS or Android smartphone.
Microsoft confirmed late last month that the Timeline feature would be included in the next Windows 10 build for Insider program members. The feature is now available to members on the Fast ring.
They should bear in mind that features released in Fast Ring previews are often more buggy so it shouldn’t surprise them if they run into any issues with the feature. Microsoft is yet to confirm when the Timeline feature is going to be released for everyone. It’s unlikely that it will happen before 2018.
