Build 2016 is on and slowly we are getting more idea about what kind of changes and new features Microsoft is planning to bring to Windows 10 in future. In fact there are some exciting changes coming soon to Windows 10 first to Insiders and then to everyone via Anniversary update. Here are some of the changes and new features you can expect coming to your PC.
As can be seen in the above screenshot there may be changes coming to Start Screen. The App list sorted out by the first letter / number in the App name is much enhanced.
Action Center has a revamped new look and design as can be seen in the screenshot below.
Notifications Mirroring & Universal Dismiss:
- Microsoft will soon make developer and users life very easy and connected by allowing notifications sync from even an Android device to your Windows 10 PC or Mobile device. It is obviously possible between a Windows 10 PC and Mobile device too. This feature is being refereed as “Notification mirroring” and Microsoft revealed this feature in a Build 2016 session yesterday. Read more about it here.
- Universal Dismiss feature for notifications will also be supported which means dismissing notification on one Windows 10 Mobile or PC devices to dismiss it on all connected Window 10 devices. It will soon make its way to upcoming Insider builds it seems. Read more here.
It will be soon possible to continue using an App when you change your device without fear of discontinuing and losing your work. So, as has been teased in the Build 2016 sizzle video one may be able to receive a call coming to Phone on your PC and so on.
These screenshots have been taken from the sizzle video below and have been confirmed yesterday by Microsoft during sessions.
