As we round out 2020, Windows 10X news and rumors come into play. While Microsoft has been a relative mum on Windows 10X this year, a support document has emerged that suggests that Microsoft’s modern standby feature is supported by the infamous evasive operating system (via Windows Latest).
Modern Standby is a relatively new feature for Windows 10 and Xbox users where devices in “Sleep Mode” can download data such as email, updates, alerts and other low-level operations.
Again, standby mode is currently something Windows 10 already supports, and is mainly dependent on people actually putting the devices to sleep instead of turning them off completely. When devices are put into sleep mode, data and apps like Mail, Photos, Calendar, Settings, UWPs and PWAs are kept connected (while connected to a mobile or Wi-Fi connection) to the data sources and are able to retrieve content which gives users an almost instantaneous feeling when they boot up their devices.
With Windows 10X as the latest operating system offering for Microsoft, support for Modern Standby seems like a no-brainer feature to include. The news, in and of itself, is not that impressive, but with Microsoft cutting some topics or conversations related to Windows 10X for an entire year, the updated documentation gives some credibility to recent rumors about the secret OS.
