The biggest announcements from Microsoft's Build event

12 May 2017, 01:14 | Gerardo Harmon

That's the placeholder name for Microsoft's next big Windows 10 update, which as you might guess, will roll out this fall.

All three features are coming with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Dubbed as the Windows 10 Redstone 3, Microsoft has today announced that the next version of Windows 10 will continue focusing on creativity, giving it the title of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

One of the new features included in the update is "Timeline" which will provide users with "a visual timeline that displays what you what you were doing [and] when", allowing users to quickly pick up on an existing project, Myerson said. You can watch the presentation video below that highlights the new features. That means you can start work on a computer, for example, and then pick up where you left off if you switch machines.

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.

Following the keynote, new Windows 10 builds were released for PCs and phones, which are 16193 and 15213, respectively.


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. That will give you more granular control over each app's volume instead of basing everything on the system volume.

While the ability to automatically select, trim and create videos and incorporate them into themes with editable storyboards isn't new, nor is the ability to change music or sync to beats. Story Remix takes your media - photos and video from your smartphone, for example - and turns them into "instant video stories". But rather than being a successor to UWP, Fluent Design System is a design language and design approach, akin to Metro, the touch-friendly interface technology that shipped with Windows 8, Shaw said. Microsoft executives described it as a more gradual journey over time.

Microsoft has simplified the install of Ubuntu by bringing it to the Windows Store. When you try to open a file that isn't stored on your PC, Windows will download it and open it for you.

We were also told that HP ($329) and Acer ($299) will both open up pre-orders for their Mixed Reality HMDs through the Microsoft Store for developers in the USA and Canada. And though "Fall Creators Update" might feel like Microsoft is phoning it in a little by copping most of its last update's name, it's certainly descriptive.

Microsoft also debuted a new mixed reality controller at the conference that will work with multiple upcoming virtual reality headsets to offer mixed reality experiences.
