According to the Express.co, MICROSOFT confirms major new Windows 10 update will be coming to mobile devices in the biggest show of support for its smartphone software to date.
Windows 10 Mobile is about to get a whole lot more powerful.
Microsoft’s fledgling mobile software platform is set to be upgraded with one of the company’s most advanced releases yet as it gears up for an important few months.
This comes after Microsoft confirmed that the Windows 10 Creators Update will be coming to mobile devices soon after its PC release.
Windows 10 Creators Update is set to arrive on PC and other computing devices in April, and now will be launching on Windows 10 Mobile soon after.
MICROSOFT TOLD SOFTPEDIA THAT THE RELEASE WILL BE COMING SOON
Microsoft told Softpedia that the release will be coming soon after the initial rollout, saying, “The initial update will be for desktop, but other versions will be available thereafter.”
The launch of Creators Update on Windows 10 Mobile had been widely expected, but today is the first time the upgrade has been confirmed.
Microsoft carried out a similar move with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which arrived on is mobile platform two weeks after the PC release.
Windows 10 Creators Update is largely aimed at PC users, but there are several key tools which mobile consumers should find handy.
This includes upgrades to the Continuum feature, which will allow users to continue their work across multiple Windows 10 devices, whether mobile, tablet or PC.
THERE ARE ALSO SET TO BE A NUMBER OF IMPROVEMENTS TO THE MICROSOFT EDGE BROWSER
There are also set to be a number of improvements to the Microsoft Edge browser, as well more reliable Wi-Fi support.
Windows 10 Mobile has struggled somewhat in recent months, as the twin juggernauts of Android and iOS dominate the smartphone software market.
The most recent analyst figures from Gartner show that Microsoft’s share of the mobile market is a paltry 0.3 per cent worldwide.
Microsoft is now entering the final preparations for the release of Windows 10 Creators Update.
The upgrade is set to bring a huge number of improvements for users, with new features being leaked and unveiled fairly frequently.
Most recently, Microsoft unveiled a new makeover for smart voice assistant Cortana for the Windows 10 Creators Update.
Microsoft changed the colour of Cortana on the task bar several software builds ago, but following feedback from users, this will now be reverting to its original greyish hue.
Microsoft has also improved its “Pick up where you left off” feature in the new update, as going forward, Windows 10 will now shows any files, websites or apps you’ve been using in Microsoft Edge using Cortana, rather than the Action Centre.
This means that your previous files are always quickly accessible, and you don’t need to worry about accidentally deleting the Action Centre notification.
