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.
The list of changes and upgrades that users can expect with this update is extensive. We’re talking serious upgrades to Cortana, a better experience for digital pens, unified messaging and direct integration with Google’s Android operating system.
Here’s everything that’s new in the Anniversary Windows 10 Update that we know about. As Microsoft hasn’t stopped development on the upgrade, even more is expected than what’s listed here. Microsoft plans to launch the Anniversary Windows 10 Update for free to all Windows 10 users. Gotta Be Mobile will continue to update this slideshow with new features as they’re announced.
