Back in August, Microsoft had released the final version of most awaited OS, the Windows 10. While the RTM version was released to public, the development continued for the Insider preview program. Today, Microsoft is releasing the first major update for Windows 10 ever since it was released.
The new update brings in lot of improvements and also some added features to the OS. If you are using Windows 10, you will be getting this update in the Windows Update settings.
Features in the new Update:
- Performance in everyday tasks, such as boot time now nearly 30% faster than Windows 7 on the same device.
- With Cortana, you can use your device’s pen to just scribble a note in the Cortana Notebook and Cortana will recognize the phone number, email address, and even physical address to help you set reminders. Cortana can also now keep track of your event and movie bookings too, sending you helpful reminders to know where to go and get there on time, plus the option to book and track an Uber. We’re excited to make Cortana available in Japan, Australia, and Canada and India (in English) with features and experiences customized for each market.
- Microsoft Edge offers improved performance and security, along with tab preview, which allows you to hover over your open tabs and get a preview of what’s on those websites without leaving the page you’re on. Microsoft Edge now syncs your Favorites and Reading list items across devices so you can easily get back to the content you’re interested in most. And, Cortana will now notify you of the best coupons from your favorite retailers such as Staples, Macys and Best Buy when shopping in Microsoft Edge.
Windows 10 also starts rolling out to Xbox One today and select mobile phones soon. There is also improvements to Mail, Calendar, Photos, Groove, Xbox, Store, OneNote, Solitaire, and more. So if you are already running Windows 10, check your PC for the new update.
