After waiting for all these days, Microsft is finally going to push the new Windows 10 feature update to the users on April 30. The company delayed the update due to some BSOD-causing bug that appeared last minute.
One good thing is now it has a more comprehensible official name: Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Many people consider it far better than Fall Creators and Spring Creators because it’s now easier to know the month and year of a feature update.
As you already know, Timeline is the biggest feature Microsoft has added to the April 2018 Update, in fact, to Windows. It’s an effort to simplify the cross-device user experience by enabling users to continue their work on different devices.
It’s not limited to Windows OS, Microsoft has recently started testing the Timeline feature on Android and iOS device through the Edge Browser.
The April 2018 Update also brings improved dictation to Windows 10. People can use natural voice input anywhere, for instance, to take notes or write an article.
Microsoft has also empowered the digital assistant Cortana to take command of users’ smart homes directly from their Windows 10 PC running the April Update. She can control many devices including those from Nest, ecobee, Honeywell, etc.
Further, the Edge browser is getting a host of new features including a much-needed site-wide mute button. Its printer interface now has a clutter-free option that removes unnecessary stuff before printing web pages. Edge comes with inbuilt grammar tools that can break an article into syllables and color code different parts of speech like nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
With all that said, if you’re excited about the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, be prepared to get it on your computer on Monday. While it would take some days for the rollout to happen via Windows Update, users will be able to download it manually.
