  • Half-billion Windows 10 devices but PC slump stunts growth

An update of Microsoft's Windows 10 software will include features for playing games and watching video in the realm of "mixed reality".

"For developers, Fluent Design is built to help you create more expressive and engaging apps that work across a wide range of device and input diversity", he added.

Timeline visually displays what a user was doing previously, allowing users to easily hop back into files, apps and websites as if it was real time. The app will also be able to pull 3D content from Paint 3D and will also allow users to customise their videos through Window Ink that will let them draw upon the video.

In Windows 8.1, placeholders, also called smart files, let users see all their files stored on OneDrive, whether those files were stored on the device or not.

By combining Microsoft cloud and AI, Microsoft plans to introduce new cognitive services, new innovations for platforms in the Microsoft Bot Framework, advances in deep learning tools, and continued infusion of AI into the company's products and services.

Microsoft removed yet another drawback by announcing today that iTunes will be available in the Windows Store by the end of the year.

On the other hand, the announcement may not come as good news to macOS users who look forward to iTunes breaking up into separate apps and Windows support falling back. Microsoft signed onto the Linux Foundation previous year. The company's Desktop Bridge technology has led to many more developers releasing their existing apps for the store, enabling current "classic" Windows apps to be ported to the sandbox of the Universal Windows Platform. Most of the improvements are in the Windows Store.

Microsoft has been proactively working to improve the quality and volume of apps available in the Windows Store over the past few months. "We're going to do a bunch of work that's focused on the idea of Windows PCs love devices". That definition seems to have shifted a little to include the idea that the graph can be used by developers as a connective tissue to extend Windows experiences to other platforms.

With modern code, developers can take advantage of Windows and the Microsoft Graph, using Project Rome for UWP, Android and now iOS.

A growing dependence on those mobile devices has reduced the role Windows-powered PCs play in people's lives. Microsoft's goal with this app is to allow people to share their experiences without having to learn how to use video editing apps like Adobe Premiere Pro.

Microsoft didn't say when Fall Creators Update is expected to be released although a preview was released on Thursday for early testers. The equipment, to be made by Acer, will sell as a package for $399.

Microsoft's new controller will work without requiring the placement of motion sensors in a room to trace a user's movements.

Belfiore acknowledged the obvious concern: what if one device doesn't have the right app that you need installed?

To that end, the company is introducing a new motion controller created to work with mixed reality apps. "We are working with developers to create this new frontier in computing and want any developer to get a Windows Mixed Reality dev kit", Myerson said.
