Microsoft is set to miss the release of an upcoming Timeline feature for Windows 10. Originally intended to appear in the Fall Creators Update, the new addition is instead being pushed to the Windows Insider programme after the update is deployed.
Timeline was intended to allow users to work in the same application across multiple devices. The idea is that word integration with Cortana would allow documents and other projects to be synced across many places in real time. Early applications would be limited to Microsoft’s own apps, but the goal is to ideally get it out to as many third party productivity apps as possible.
However, Windows Insiders have noted that the feature is not yet being tested. None of the current Insider builds include the Timeline, and Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore has confirmed that it has been delayed.
No reasons for the delay have been provided. It is likely that Microsoft wants to delay the release to work on it a little more. Which is not something new from the company. It pulled a couple of features from the last Creators Update when it appeared that they would not be ready in time.
