Windows' importance declines, Microsoft adapts

Windows 10 April 2018 Update Will Be Rolled Out On April 30th And Will Bring New Features And Improvements

But Microsoft gradually rolls the automatic update out to the millions of computers running Windows, so there's a good chance it's not there for you yet.

The biggest feature is Timeline.

Microsoft is pointing to a few themes with the update.

Some are calling the latest feature update for Microsoft Windows 10 boring, but the new version is more about enhancements for business users rather than about content creation.

This means updates are delivered to desktops and laptops via one device over a local area network rather than being fetched by each individual system over the internet, or through a remote management server. Also Cortana, the digital voice-assistant on Microsoft's Windows 10, will now manage smart home devices from the PC itself.

Some Windows 10 users in Thailand for example have only just received the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which was released in October 2017. Additionally, people can hold the Windows button and tap the trigger of a motion controller to more easily take digital photos within their VR games. We're sure that all users will be able to download the Windows 10 April Update ISO files in the coming hours. However, with all things that are "available" from Microsoft, it's assured that things will be more complicated than a simple release date implies.

Last but certainly not least, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update includes some lesser-known privacy improvements that will be much appreciated by users who value their personal data.

With the April 2018 Update, you can now enable a setting that tells Windows to try and fix any apps it detects has become blurry due to screen resolution changes. The Timeline feature assists Windows 10 users to find what matters to them across devices.

The update introduces the ability to mute tabs.

Microsoft's browser also gets autofill not just for addresses, but payment information as well, making it easier to shop online. As it always does though, the company published a list of features that are being removed in the update, as well as those that are being deprecated, meaning that they're no longer supported and will be removed in a future release.

Cable is urging organizations to follow Microsoft's advice to test Windows 10 with about 10 percent of end users before rolling it out more broadly, as Microsoft has previously advised.

Phased Rollouts Availability of the updates is actually determined by Microsoft's algorithms.
