Microsoft, the technology giant, is updating it’s latest operating system Windows 10 and will also be revamping the whole Cortana experience. The new update will include improvements to the settings menu, touch keyboard and handwriting panel.
The new build is available to the members of the Windows Insider preview program. Microsoft will also revamp the Digital Assistant Cortana with a new layout which is similar to the Spotlight feature on MacOS. The Redstone4 update will be new, lightweight, renewed, and definitely more eye catching. Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia reported the new redesigned and rewritten version of Microsoft seems to work already wonderfully despite being in the initial development phase.
Microsoft also updated the support for high dynamic range (HDR) and now users can change the brightness of standard dynamic ranged content. Cortana will also display a floating search bar which can also be activated using the Windows+S shortcut. The handwriting panel will support an improved insertion gesture along with the “commit” text to a document or enter text into apps that support the input method and clear out the text in the handwriting panel.
In an attempt to tidy up Windows Settings, some user interface options have been rearranged. The cursor thickness, touch feedback and pointer customization settings will now be a part of Ease of Access section. Using new tools organized in the operating system’s Privacy settings, Microsoft’s personal digital assistant, Cortana, will also allow users to revisit and manage their activity histories. Along with feature upgrades, a lengthy list of bugs will also be fixed to enhance user experience. However, according to a technology portal, users may still encounter other bugs such as some Cortana notifications failing to materialize.
Overall, Microsoft is working hard to enhance the Cortana experience using new Fluent Design elements. Meanwhile, Cortana’s new look does look beautiful!
