According to recently published documentation by Microsoft, Windows 10 Redstone Wave 1 will be released in July this year. It will be called Windows 10 “Anniversary Update” and will bring interactive cards to Cortana and Action Center that will allow free flow of information between both areas of the system.
The date of the release was recently confirmed by company officials on the first day of Microsoft’s Build 2016 conference in San Francisco. A documentation released for Redstone app developers clearly stated the “Version 1607,” which suggests that Windows 10 Redstone will be released this summer. The version number represents the year and month of a release – 1607 or 2016, July.
In the beginning, Windows 10 Redstone will be released to PCs and Xbox One but will then roll out to other devices. The Anniversary release is free for users already accessing the software on laptops, PCs and other devices. The good news is, users of Windows 7 and 8.1 will also get the update for free, notes ZDnet.
MSPower reports that Redstone will bring a lot of new features, including improvements to File Explorer, Action Center, Microsoft Edge, Cortana, etc. Nonetheless, more updates to Redstone will be announced at the Build conference in the following days.
The Redmond-based company has plans for new Card designs, bringing modern and sleek interface to the Action Center. As a result, you will find great similarities between both the Cortana and Action Center. The main purpose is to create a common set of shared actions among the different areas of the system to allow access in more than one way.
Sources also claim that the tech giant has plans to include filters to the Action Centers, which will help users filter notifications before choosing. Under the new feature, the notifications will be categorized under certain app types, making it easy to check only the notifications that you want to see, according to WinBeta.
