The Windows 1
Here are some new features we hope to see.
Microsoft has no public commitment to a particular Windows 10 edition for Windows, as the company just wants to send the feature when it's ready and ready. Insiders were able to test an early version of Set during the development of Redstone 4 and Redstone 5, and the same would happen through the development of 19H1. So hope this will be clear in time for RTM at 19H1 next year.
Sets allows users to group apps and sites under the same window, just like how tabs work in a browser. It expands the same tabbing experience to more than just websites, so programs like Word, PowerPoint or Slack can be grouped together under one set that can then be shared across devices with timeline.
Back in 2017, I revealed that Microsoft is working on a new Windows 10 Control Center with the aim of bringing all of the fast actions and systems changes under a popup menu available in the taskbar's system tray. Microsoft has had many chances to free this feature over the last couple of updates in Windows 10, but did not decide.
I have been told that the Control Center has been significantly redesigned a couple of times since I first wrote about it in 2017, which is probably part of the reason we have not yet. 19H1 is as good as someone who sees that it's up to Insiders to start testing, so here's hope we'll see it soon.
Microsoft announced the phone at its build developer conference earlier this year, which allows users to sync their phone and PC together and send texts, images and more directly from your PC. Windows 10 already has phone integration at some capacity, but your phone is a dedicated app experience that gives you an overview of your phone without having to look at it.
It would also be nice if Microsoft found out a way to allow us to call our PCs powered by our phones, but Microsoft has not announced this as a feature in the works. For now, the phone will be able to send and receive texts, display alerts, and share photos across devices.
A Better Look My People
When my people were announced, this beautiful new user interface appeared just as well. In Windows 10 today, nothing looks like it did when it was announced and it's a real shame. It would be great if Microsoft finally came around to complete My People in 19H1.
I'd also like to see your phone integration with my people so I can call phone contacts to the taskbar so I can easily send text messages or photos to them without having to pick up my phone. This would easily make My People a useful OS feature, currently it's a bit unnecessary since there are not many apps that use it.
I'm sure there are many more features scheduled for 19H1 that we just do not know I do not know yet, including more updates for Edge, Start and Action Center, and more. What do you hope to see in the next Windows 10 update? Let us know in the comments.
