Microsoft is at last naming its next Windows 10 update. The Windows 10 April 2018 Update was initially slated to be released on the 10th of April, however, Microsoft was met with a bug that moved the release date to the very last day of April. This April update is currently available for people to manually download on Monday the 30th of April, before it rolls out to machines on the 8th of May.
Microsoft is created a naming structure for this Windows 10 update after the company designated it as the “Windows 10 Spring Creators Update” both within the operating system and in various public documentation. Aaron Woodman, a director at Microsoft in an interview with one of our sources explains saying, “I think people were really craving a lot more simplicity. We floated a number of different names to a lot of customers that provided that proactive feedback, and really the simplest way to help people understand the update was to give it a time that people can clearly understand and works really globally much more efficiently.”
The Windows 10 April 2018 update lets in a new Timeline feature for recalling previous apps you were working on across machines, it even provides the ability to open your browsing history from Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android. Microsoft is also adding a new dictation feature besides an improved Focus Assist feature for silencing notifications. The update also includes a Microsoft Edge browser mute tab feature, and the company also refreshes its Xbox Game Bar with a new design.
Most of the features in the new update are somewhat minor, but welcomed changes for regular Windows 10 users. The company is also working on its next update with the codename, Redstone 5. The update which will be out later this year has clever tabs for apps, and will even feature a dark mode for File Explorer. Microsoft is yet to name its future update and is looking for feedback on the new naming. When Woodman was asked if the update will have the same name, he said, “I actually honestly don’t know. I believe this is a strong likely candidate to continue, but I also want to be willing to be wrong for customers as well.”
