We don’t know everything that Microsoft will bring to its next big update of Windows 10, but we do now know that the company is doubling down on the “creative” name and that it is promising some features to bring Windows value across different platforms. But, Microsoft has made promises before. The Windows 10 Creators Update that just recently delivered is much different than what was originally promised. Key features announced when Creators Update was first introduced last year are still missing. So, we’ll have to wait and see how these newly announced features shake out in the end.
Today, the company promised the following new pieces…
- A new design system called the Microsoft Fluent Design System.
- Windows Story Remix – a new creative app
- Timeline – a timeline of user activity that allows the user to go back into computing time to access files, apps, and websites
- Pick Up Where You Left Off – a Cortana feature that works across Windows, iOS and Android devices, to — well — pick up where you left off (between devices)
- Clipboard – an extension that allows the copying of data on the desktop to be available across devices (again, Windows, iOS, and Android).
- OneDrive Files on Demand – a rebooted OneDrive experience that seeks to bring back removed functionality
