Microsoft announced that today, April 30, Windows 10 April 2018 Update, the latest upgrading of the company’s latest operating system, will begin.
According to the company’s blogpost, the upgrading will be available to users as of today, and more widely available from May 8 onwards. This upgrading was formerly known as Redstone 4 and will bring users, beyond the bug fixes, a series of new features such as Timeline, improved voice command support, and improvements to the Edge web browser.
Timeline is essentially a history tool that allows the user to track material that he handled over the past 30 days. Timeline lets you find thumbnails for web pages, document files, or other files. Additionally, if Office or Edge is used on a mobile device (iOS or Android), Timeline can be used to continue work from the mobile device on the computer.
Another new feature is Focus Assist, which assists in deactivating audible alerts and other “interferences” when the user is working on the computer. Apparently the user will be able to enable or disable this feature or set a specific operating time. After the Focus Assist has run, the user can detect the notifications they have “lost” by scanning (email, social media, calls, etc.).
Upgrades are also included on Edge, with the user able to read eBooks and PDFs (Reading View) there. Additionally, Edge will now automatically support auto fill of payment information on web forms so that the user saves time, while it is possible to mute or unmute on tabs that reproduce audio content.
With Voice Dictation, which is triggered by typing Win + H, text can be entered using voice commands instead of conventional typing. Of course, the voice settings in Windows 10 should be configured properly.
Other improvements will be Near Share to send files and URLs to nearby devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, availability of Progressive Web apps in the Microsoft Store, and upgrading settings in the Privacy section.
