Revealed Thursday at Microsoft's Build conference in Seattle, the next major version of Windows 10 fills fills the gaps in March’s Creators Update and helps users work seamlessly across multiple Windows devices.

The next major update to Windows is coming later this year in what Microsoft is calling the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This news came from Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s executive vice president of the Windows and devices group during the second day of Microsoft’s Build developer conference. Microsoft’s first Creators Update began rolling out to Windows users at the end of last month.

Among the features highlighted in the Fall Creators update is something called “Timeline,” which helps users by giving them a “visual timeline that displays what you were doing [and] when,” so that they could do something like start a task on one computer and pick up where they left off on another device.

Cortana will be able to prompt users when they switch from one device to another so that they can transition smoothly from working on your phone to a desktop computer. Myerson described the experience as akin to “having your PC and your phone finish each other’s sentences.”

The update will also add a feature that Apple has already developed: the ability to copy content on one device and paste it on another in what is known as a “Universal Clipboard.”

Myerson did not specify how late in the fall Microsoft would release the Fall Creators Update.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
