Microsoft making mobile connection with Windows update

Microsoft announced a range of updates coming to Windows 10 at a developers conference in Seattle.

Movie Maker saw its last release in 2014 before being discontinued at the beginning of this year. Basically this feature will essentially be a visual timeline of what apps you're working on in your PC.

As with other Windows 10 updates, this will be free for existing Windows 10 users. Each one contains a soundtrack, theme, and transitions.

Microsoft's big new creativity app for the update is Story Remix, a photo and video editing app where users can quickly create montages of their content. That occasion saw the launch of Windows 10 S, a walled-up OS where only apps from the Windows Store can be downloaded.

This cross-platform integration will also be made possible for third-party apps, through the use of "Project Rome", with Microsoft showing how developers can code their apps in a way that will allow users to seamlessly continue their experience across different devices. You can also apply filters custom text, and change how the picture is animated in the video. At least for PCs that usually have Internet connections, this was a neat way to offer cloud file syncing without consuming gigabytes of space for infrequently used files on every computer you were signed into. Microsoft tried this before with an experimental app called OneClip but it was never released.

On day one, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that Windows 10 now runs on 500 million devices.

The Fall Creators Update will be available later this year.

Collins also took issue with the bill's failure to adjust the size of its tax credits based on people's income or where they live. The House last week narrowly passed legislation aimed at repealing and replacing ObamaCare, sending the bill to the Senate.

Enhancements to the widely used operating system to roll out later this year are created to make applications built on Microsoft technology work more harmoniously across an array of internet-linked devices, according to demonstrations given at the company's Build developers conference in Seattle. An extra frill showcased at Build was the Windows Story Remix application. One demonstration during Build showed how an office worker might use Cortana on a living room speaker to get everyday tasks done with simple voice commands, like posting updates to the company's workplace chatroom, getting traffic notifications while driving to a meeting, or requesting time off.

For people using multiple devices, Myerson said Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions.

The company has also announced support for Azure's IoT Device Management which would provide highly scalable remote device management features along with bringing support for the upcoming Azure IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service which makes it easier to provision a connected device via Azure IoT.

The latest build of the Fall Creators Update became available to Windows Insider developers yesterday.

iTunes for Windows 10 will include support for Apple Music, the iTunes Store, iPhones, and any other Apple device.
