As you may have just heard all over the web, Microsoft has unveiled a new generation of Windows, whilst also giving us a glimpse of how our interactions with computers can change in the (hopefully very soon) future.
Do you see this? Yes.. this is how you might be able to interact with your computer soon! Cool eh?
For the full details on what was shared during the press event, check out the Windows Blog or keep reading here for a quick overview. Here’s a look at some of the new experiences coming to Windows 10:
- Windows 10 will be delivered as a service and be made available for free to customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 who upgrade in the first year.
- Cortana comes to PC and Tablet. The Cortana personal digital assistant will now be available on Windows 10 PCs and tablets to support people and help them get things done.
- A new web experience for Windows 10. “Project Spartan,” the next generation browser offers the ability to annotate with keyboard or pen and share with friends, distraction-free reading mode and integration with Cortana to put the web to work
- Xbox on Windows 10. Stream games directly from your Xbox One to Windows 10, play games with friends across devices and experience great graphics built using DirectX12.
- Office for Windows 10: Office universal apps on Windows 10 deliver a consistent, touch-first experience across phone, tablet and PC. We’ll have more to share on the next version of the Office desktop suite in the coming months.
- The world’s first holographic computing platform: Windows 10 enables developers to create holographic experiences in the real world, and the new Microsoft HoloLens is the first untethered holographic computer – no wires, phones or connection to a PC needed. (I can’t wait to see this!!)
- New Microsoft Surface Hub optimizes Windows 10 experiences for groups: Surface Hub takes advantage of Windows 10, Skype for Business and Office 365 to make every person – remote or onsite – feel like they’re in the same collaborative space.
