How’s it going guys? Welcome to the another exciting Microsoft weekly, where we are about to go over the top stories of the past week in the world of Microsoft and its product. In this Microsoft weekly we have news about Windows 10 Creators Update, #MicrosoftEDU event, Joe Belfiore back, tabbed shell in Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and more.
Windows 10 Creators Update
Microsoft now officially started rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update to production version. The Windows 10 Redstone 2 aka the Windows 10 Creators update packs with bunch of new features and tons of improvements. Here take a note that the normal update will roll out gradually so you might not get it instantly. But if you want to grab the update right now you can get it via Upgrade Assistant tool.
Microsoft holding Spring hardware event on May 2nd. We are expected to see a new Surface device at the event. Although it will not be the Surface Book 2 not Surface Pro 5. The new device will run the special edition of Windows 10, Windows Cloud. The new device will be be affordable mid-range device featuring Windows Cloud. The event will be live streamed online, you can catch it at 9:30 am Eastern Time.
Microsoft bringing a new feature with Redstone 3. The new featured called “Tabbed Shell” in Windows 10 will essentially add tabs to windows. The new tabbed experience in Windows 10 will work across all the different apps including Win32 apps, the Universal Windows Platform apps, and also in File Explorer. As the name suggest the Tabbed Shell will allow users to launch new tab for the app in Windows 10, just like we use it in any browser.
Joe Belfiore & Windows Cloud
Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore back to work and some report suggests that the he could be the man behind the Windows Cloud. Windows Cloud is nothing but the special edition of the Windows 10. It is specially designed for the education purpose by targeting students. It is company’s next move to take on the Google’s Chrome OS. We might see Belfiore at the #MicrosoftEDU event.
Windows 10 Mobile
Microsoft now stepping back for Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft to roll out the Windows 10 Creators Update to only 11 eligible mobile devices. This is huge step from from company. And that means we no longer see new insider preview build for all Lumia devices. In addition they also announced that the Insiders who have devices not on this list can still keep these devices on the Windows 10 Creators Update at their own risk knowing that it’s unsupported.! So, I believe that from now on more than 60% Lumia will not receive any new major update from Microsoft.
Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16176 for PC insider in Fast Ring.
The official upgrade path from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile no longer available. Microsoft pulls out the Upgrade Advisor app from the Windows Store.
So that’s all for this Microsoft Weekly. Thanks for tuning us. Stay tune to Amaziness for more update. And I’ll see you in the next one b… bye!
