Unless something extremely major happens (again), Microsoft has gone on record in a blog post about upcoming new features to promise that the Windows 10 April Update will go live for customers on April 30…
The April 2018 Update will be available as a free download beginning Monday, April 30.
The blog post focuses on three big updates in the upcoming release. Those are:
- Timeline – With Timeline, your Windows 10 PC lets you go back in time up to 30 days to find your stuff, whether you were working on it earlier today, last week, or a few weeks ago.
- Focus Assist – Turn on Focus Assist whenever you want to get things done without distractions, like social media or other notifications.
- Microsoft Edge enhancements – mute-a-tab, full-screen reading, clutter-free printing, grammar tools and autofill on web forms
- Dictation – voice as natural input. It’s now easier than ever to take a note or write a paper, with just your voice.
Additionally, the company has taken space on the same blog to sort of explain why the company renamed the update from Creators Update to just…Update.
With Windows 10, we’ve focused on delivering the most modern and most secure operating system. Since its initial launch, we delivered two updates with features designed to enable the creator in each of us. With our latest major release – the Windows 10 April 2018 Update – we want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time. Our hope is that you’ll have more time to do what matters most to you – create, play, work or simply do what you love.
