17 Anniversary Windows 10 Update Features

Windows 10 was the operating system release that showed Microsoft might be capable of delivering on its promise to evolve Windows quickly than it had in years. The Anniversary Windows 10 Update will be the operating system’s first serious update since November. There’s a lot riding on its success.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update isn’t nearly as boring as the versions that testers have received since Microsoft made its last major update to Windows 10 available in the fall. With the plumbing and behind-the-scenes work complete, the Windows Team has moved on to creating features. Microsoft plans to make these features – plus more that it’s still working on – available to users this summer when the Anniversary Windows 10 Update debuts free of charge.

Cortana Upgrades

 The procession of impressive new features begins with Cortana, Microsoft’s digital personal assistant. With the first Windows 10 release, Cortana became cross-platform; there are apps for Android and iPhone now.

With this release, Microsoft is closely tying the assistant to Windows phone and Android. Cortana now stays informed of your device’s battery life. She notifies users when your battery is low. She can be asked to track down your iPhone or Android device using its built-in GPS too. The personal assistant now sends directions` directly to your phone when you request them on your Windows 10 PC. The company says that it has improved the setup process for Cortana too.
