Microsoft is currently in preparation mode for the Windows Anniversary update. This update is scheduled for the 2nd of August and will then be available for all Windows 10 users as a download through Windows Update. While Microsoft has spent a lot of time on fixing bugs and making the operating system a fast and fluent experience there is another major part which has not been focused on so much yet. Windows 10 is shipped with a lot of system apps like Groove Music, Maps and Microsoft Edge.
A while ago the company introduced a kind of preview program which allows Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring with the latest build installed, to try new versions of system apps which will be released for more users later on. Microsoft has done this with the Groove Music app in the past, where an update was available for Windows Insiders first and has then been released for all users later on. The universal Maps app for Windows is another such an app which is part of the preview program.
The update released today doesn’t include a lot of new features, however, it can be very helpful for people who are using public transport a lot. If you are navigating through a city with windows maps using public transport, the app will now display the destination time on all single bus, train and subway stations.
So that’s not a huge improvement but definitely a nice little addition for the app. Since I have received this update on my Lumia 950 running the latest build of Windows 10 Mobile, but I haven’t got the update on my Lumia 930 yet which is running an older build, I suppose Microsoft to be testing this version of the app with Windows Insiders on the latest build first.
Fell free to drop me a comment below with your thoughts on this new feature and stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
