Hot on the heels of the new Creators Update that was deployed to end users last month, Microsoft today has unveiled the next major update for Windows 10. Previewed for the first time at Build 2017, it will be called Fall Creators Update which pretty much described its release timeline and users’ theme.
To be available later this year, it will also mark the official arrival of the new design language for the operating system which is called Microsoft Fluent Design System or formerly known as Project Neon. At the same time, the update will bring together several new features that leverages on the analytics and machine learning capabilities of Microsoft Graph.
Among such feature is called Timeline which apparently allows users to go back in time to work on files or visit website that they have used or browsed before. Designed for single device, it can be used to run apps as how they appeared in the past.
Other than that, the Fall Creators Update also brings a feature that Microsoft called as “Pick Up Where You Left Off” for Cortana. This feature essentially allows users to seamlessly continue where they left off whether in app, documents, or websites across Windows, iOS, and Android devices.
The upcoming update will also come with a feature called Clipboard which essentially helps users to instantly copy and paste contents between devices regardless of whether they are PCs or smartphones. Among the contents that Clipboard is able to support are photos, map link, paragraph, and animated gif.
Not to forget, there is also OneDrive Files on Demand that allows users to access their files on the cloud storage without having the need to download them first which also means that their storage space will be left untouched. This can be done directly through File Explorer or Windows app.
The exact release date for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is not yet known at the moment but as mentioned earlier, its name has pretty much describe the update’s general roll out period.
