Microsoft’s first attempt at making Windows 10 a true universal OS was an experiment that failed miserably, but it did provide a few features and an interface that were pretty solid.
In addition to that, it introduced a lot of cool stuff like Cortana, which is a new, personal assistant.
We’ll see how well this succeeds in a year or two, but for now, the Windows 10 Mobile edition looks to be a step down for Windows overall.
Microsoft isn’t yet showing off a build of the OS that will run on smartphones and tablets, but you can see the OS in action on the new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build, which launched today.
The preview builds of Windows 10 are supposed to be the first beta, but this build was only a preview.
You can see some of the new features in action below.
The app looks like it’s based on the same code that powers the Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 versions of Cortana.
You get a lot more options for searching and adding a photo to your gallery, and you can also add a photo from your camera roll to your profile.
Microsoft says that the app will work across a wide range of devices, and that it’ll be able to connect to your existing Windows phone, tablet, and PC, too.
Microsoft’s Cortana will also have some new options when you add photos and videos.
You’ll get to add a new photo to the gallery by swiping left on a photo and then dragging it from your photo collection to the left of your photo album.
You could also drag a photo you want to add to your photos to the top or bottom of your gallery.
You also can add video clips to your images, and if you have a high-resolution camera, you can even take a screenshot.
Cortana will work with your existing contacts, as well, and it’ll automatically update your contacts with the new photos and notes.
Microsoft also added a bunch of new features for you to choose from.
You’ve got a few new photo filters to help you take better selfies, and there’s a new “favorite” and “share” functions.
Microsoft has also made it easier for you and your family to see your photos on the lock screen.
You don’t have to open the app to use it, and all you need to do is tap on the image to make it pop up.
Windows 10 PCs will get updates to Windows 10 for free every few months.
That means that if you upgrade to Windows 9.2, for example, you’ll have to pay for Windows 10 to stay on top of the updates.
You may also want to consider upgrading to the Windows Store to get the latest updates, but that’s still a bit pricey.
We’ve already seen that Windows 10 on phones and tablets is a little buggy and unstable, but the company said that it will make some improvements in the future.
Windows 8.x users can also install a free upgrade to the operating system to get Windows 10 right out of the box.
Windows 7 and 8 users can try out Windows 10, but Microsoft is only showing a limited preview of the upcoming operating system right now.
We expect the OS to launch with support for a ton of new hardware, including the Xbox One S and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Microsoft also plans to roll out Windows 8 on devices and peripherals starting in the second half of the year.
The company is also planning to roll the OS out to mobile devices in the third quarter of next year.
