MICROSOFT wants to make Windows 10 more versatile with new features for creating memories, exploring virtual scenery and hopscotching from personal computers to mobile devices.
The added features will roll out later this year as part of “Fall Creators Update” that will be provided for free to 500 million personal computers, smartphones and tablets powered by Windows 10.
Microsoft previewed the update during its annual conference for applications developers. The company didn’t specify when it will be available; a preview for early testers was released last Thursday. The latest changes come on the heels of a free update that began to roll out last month.
Some of the upcoming tools represent another step in Microsoft’s attempt to catch up with two of its biggest rivals, Apple and Google. Along that vein, a new feature called Story Remix will automatically identify the best photos and videos to help people create highlights of their experiences.
