Float across devices with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

12 May 2017, 01:19 | Shawn Tate

However, back in April, Microsoft signaled that it's going to try to release major Windows 10 updates in March and September, so that gives you a rough idea of how long you'll have to wait to try this stuff out for yourself.

This feature will likely be welcomed by the thousands who have loudly protested to Microsoft that they would like to see this feature return to Windows 10.

The new Creators Update has a lot of ground to cover, considering that Widows 10 is now running on over 500 million devices.

One of the new features is called Timeline.

Another upcoming feature will let you start working on a document on a Windows 10 PC and pick up where you left off on a rival phone.

Switching between apps in Windows 10 has always been easy thanks to Task View, but now there will be a timeline aspect to it as well - so you can effectively get back to where you were, even if it was on another Windows 10 PC.

When is Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming to Netflix?
Marvel's latest film "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 " takes things to a new level when it comes to post-credits scenes. But the magic, though not entirely gone, has taken a serious hit, done in by a combination of prosperity and anxiety.

Pick Up Where You Left Off: Microsoft is prepping a feature that lets you pull up your last used file, app, or website on your phone after you log off your PC, or vice versa. The focus point of the new update is sharing content across devices, whether that is a Windows, iOS or Android device.

Microsoft will also announce Windows Story Remix, an app created to automatically combine photos and videos together with a soundtrack, theme, and cinematic transitions, the company said. Autodesk SketchBook, the de facto application for painting and drawing, was built from the ground up as a UWP app leveraging the pen and touch capability of Windows 10. When you select a given file from the picker, it will automatically download and open in the app - like a local file would.

Microsoft has introduced Story Remix feature to the Photos app. This is Microsoft's new design language, meant to deliver an "intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions". It is a next-generation board portal that leverages data from lines of business applications to provide a single source of truth for executives to steer the business in real time.

Along with a name, we also got our first official look at the new design language that is set to roll out with the Fall Creators Update. Due to wide interest from the community, developers in the USA and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299 USD) or HP ($329 USD) Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer. The company showed a video demonstrating the Fluent Design system that the company will be baking into the Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft also plans to introduce a new mixed reality headset and motion controller in time for the holiday season.
