The next major update to Windows 10 will be rolled out for PCs by the end of April with Microsoft hoping to finalise which software features will make the final cut for the Creators Update by the end of January.
Microsoft had intended to roll out the update in March but with a number of bugs and glitches still needing to be iron out, an April release is no much more likely, reports the MSPoweruser blog.
Windows 10 Creator Update is rumoured to include a whole host of new features, and according to reports from earlier this week could also look completely different to the current version of Windows 10.
VR will play an important role in the new update with the new holographic user interface debuting with many of the major manufacturers including Dell and Lenovo unveiling Windows 10 compatible VR headsets during 2017.
The Windows 10 Creators Update have been specifically designed to assist workers in media and other creative industries to help implement 3D designs and models into their work.
As part of the new OS update there will be the all-new 3D Paint app which will take advantage of the Surface Pen and allow users to draw directly on the screen for the first time. 3D will also play an important role in programmes such as PowerPoint as well as animation programmes.
Windows 10 Creators Update will also bring several useful updates for gamers, including upgrades to the Beam video sharing software and other tweaks that will help to improve the performance of user’s PCs whenever they are playing games.
A new feature known as MyPeople will allow users to share photos and documents without needing to open other apps.
You will also be able to add annotations and notes to your images and files. Microsoft also wants to maximise the potential of the most popular communication apps such as Skype and Xbox live.
Reports from within Microsoft claim the Redmond tech giant is working on a Home Hub software that will rival Amazon Echo.
The suggestion is that Home Hub would enable family members to share resources online such as shopping lists and other reminders more easily.
Home Hub would also help Windows 10 users control connected devices in their home with voice commands to Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana.
