Windows 10 update aims to help identify best photos, videos

Microsoft is previewing the update Thursday at a conference in Seattle for applications developers.

Microsoft says that the Edge web browser will have improved responsiveness in the upcoming Fall creators Update.

Apple stands to gain through the deal if more people are able to download iTunes to Windows-based personal computers and perhaps sign up to its Apple Music streaming service.

Now, Microsoft has announced that Apple's program is indeed coming to the Windows Store by the end of the year. There will also be new tools, controllers, and coding software to make developing apps a little easier.

On the creative side, there's a new Windows Story Remix app in the Fall Update, which leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to help you turn your pictures and videos into stories. While it may not sound like an important addition to the Windows Store on the face of it, consider the fact that iTunes is one of the most frequently searched apps on the Windows Store, where it has never been listed. Cortana integration means they can utilize a new Pick Up Where You Left Off ability to resume their activity across Windows, iOS and Android. It is reminiscent of Google Drive as it lets users save their work to the cloud. You can just click on the Parachute icon in order to save these files and make them all available while offline.


The Creators Update will also include Windows Mixed Reality, Microsoft's VR platform.

In other words, no more using an app that looks a certain way on one device only to find it's completely different on another. Like Microsoft's previous video editing tool, Story Remix allows users to edit their footage with tools for adding soundtracks, annotations, transitions and special effects, according to The Next Web. You can watch the presentation video below that highlights the new features.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore, Windows 10 VP, described how Windows and Microsoft Graph work together; bringing files, activities and contents from device islands into a unified, intelligent cloud.

The update will be the second Creator's update, after the first major Windows 10 Creator's update was announced earlier in the year. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side. The motion controllers offer responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in a Windows Mixed Reality headset, the company said, adding that there is no need to install hardware on the walls around you. Its OneDrive will allow greater control from the computer.
