Windows 10 is an ongoing project from Microsoft. The Windows Insider community is receiving new builds from time to time with new features, design and performance enhancements. After Microsoft has implemented a couple of new features they are delivered to consumers with one big update. The next big update on schedule will be the Anniversary Update which is set to be released sometime in July.
One of the new features Microsoft has implemented in recent builds for Windows Insiders, are synced notifications. So if you are using Windows 10 on a PC or tablet and you are using Cortana on Windows 10 Mobile, iOS or Android all notifications you are receiving on your phone are displayed on your PC as well. This way you won’t be missing anything important happening on your phone. Some apps are even supporting a direct reply already, well at least on Windows 10 Mobile. Also system notifications like a low battery notification or similar will be sent to your Windows 10 PC.
So feature-wise there is coming a lot with the next update, for PC and tablets as well as phones and Microsoft’s Xbox console. Still there is this famous app gap and while Microsoft had introduced the Project Astoria a while ago, which should have made it easier for developers to port apps from Android to Windows, they have canceled this again. Alternatively Microsoft is now displaying a link in notifications synchronized from Android phones stating ‘Request App’ and takes the user to a Uservoice side.
This is not a bad thing, depending on how much users will actually use it. Though it could be nice way to show some love for the windows app store any maybe even convince some of the developers to release their app also as a universal windows app.
What do our readers think of that Implementation in Windows 10? Feel free to drop us a comment below with your thoughts on this and stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
