Windows 10 Feature Experience Pack: What is Microsoft doing?
Microsoft has explained at length the changes that it made to Windows 10 with version 2004, but the purpose of the Windows Feature Experience Pack has flown under the radar somewhat. If you have already download and installed Windows 10 2004, then you may have spotted the Windows Feature Experience Pack within the About sub-section of Windows Settings. However, Microsoft is yet to explain what the Feature Experience Pack actually is. According to ZDNet, an official spokesperson of the company stated that "Microsoft has nothing to share" about the Feature Experience pack, either.
So while Microsoft is keeping quiet about its intentions behind the Windows Feature Experience Pack, the company considers it one of Windows 10's Features on Demand. ZDNet states that the Feature Experience Pack includes Snip & Sketch, along with updated versions of the text input panel and shell-suggestion UI.
Microsoft has distributed the Feature Experience Pack through Windows Update, although it is also available to download from the Microsoft Store, even for Windows 10X. The app provides no functionality currently, at least on Windows 10 1909. Microsoft recommends against uninstalling the Feature Experience Pack on version 2004, though.
ZDNet suggests that the Feature Experience Pack could form part of Microsoft's strategy to split system apps from the Windows Core OS. The effect of this could be that Microsoft can update these apps more frequently and without needing to release new versions of Windows 10 to do so, as Google has been doing with Android. Regardless, we fail to see why Microsoft has "nothing to share" about the Feature Experience Pack when it has included it in Windows 10 2004.
