Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices: a new design system; creative experiences that will move with you across Windows, iOS and Android; new apps coming to the Windows Store – including iTunes; new tools that make Windows home for all developers; and the world’s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers – no markers required.
Introducing a new design system for the next wave of creativity across Windows devices: Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions.
For developers, Fluent Design is built to help users create more expressive and engaging apps that work across a wide range of device and input diversity.
Windows experiences move with you across Windows, iOS and Android: The Microsoft Graph is an intelligent fabric that helps connect dots between people, conversations, projects and content within the Microsoft Cloud – ensuring experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS and Android devices.
Key features helping to bring this to life include these:
- Timeline visually displays what a user was doing previously, allowing users to easily hop back into files, apps and websites as if it was real time.
- With Cortana, you can Pick Up Where You Left Off across Windows, iOS and Android devices.
- Clipboard is a fast, easy way to copy and paste just about anything between connected devices by allowing copying from the desktop and pasting on a phone.
- OneDrive Files on Demand allows access to all files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on a specific device.
