Fluent Design System Prepares Microsoft For A World With Fewer Windows

Microsoft making mobile connection with Windows update

With this compatibility, users will be at ease to use the apps on both platforms.

A great productivity feature that's been announced for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is the new Timeline feature.

Consider the Fall Creators Update: while a fairly underwhelming update overall, three of the features Belfiore highlighted were squarely aimed at helping Windows users get more from Microsoft apps on their iOS and Android devices. Now, a listing on the Store indicates that WhatsApp, which already has an app on Windows 10 Mobile, is also contemplating a release on the Windows Store for PCs.

Created to ensure that "experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS and Android devices, Fluent Design and Microsoft Graph will add a variety of new capabilities via the Fall Creators Update".

Microsoft will attempt to bring down the prohibitive cost of mixed reality for customers and developers.

Files On Demand is the new name of OneDrive placeholders, a feature that debuted in Windows 8 and which allowed users to browse cloud contents without having to download anything unless opening the files.

Microsoft, which spent years developing HoloLens [pictured above], the company's own take on an augmented-reality headset that projects images into the environment of the wearer, last year opened up a portion of the software behind that device to other developers.

Myerson said the new motion controllers are the first that don't require the installation of markers, hardware devices that are usually placed on walls to provide accurate motion sensing and mixed-reality responses in physical spaces. It let the developers to run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10. "The motion controllers offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in your headset".

As part of Microsoft's new twice-a-year update schedule for Windows, the company has announced the latest update to Windows 10, collectively called the Windows Fall Creators Update. Consider the new Reveal feature that makes Windows 10 highlight buttons and other interface elements when your cursor is near them: This is nearly exactly like HoloLens making things light up when you look at them so you never have to wonder what you're interacting with.
