Microsoft Graph bridges the gap between Windows and your phone

Kayla Schwartz | 12 May, 2017, 23:52

At its Build 2017 developer conference in Seattle, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 is now running on 500 million monthly active devices.

The Windows 10 Creators Update may have only started rolling out, but Microsoft just gave us our first look at what's next for Windows.

Today is the second day of Microsoft's annual Build developer conference, and Windows 10 enthusiasts really don't want to miss the introducing keynote starting at 8:30 AM PST.

For example, the Pick Up Where You Left Off capability that Microsoft is hard-wiring into Cortana will allow users to automatically pick up in an app, document or Website where they left off, with Cortana acting as the broker between Windows, iOS and/or Android. Microsoft describes the effect as "having your PC and your phone finish each other's sentences". It's something they're calling Fluent Design, and it's coming to the next major Windows 10 update called the "Fall Creators Update".

Priceline Group Reported Q1 Earnings, Shares plummet
Finally, Carderock Capital Management Inc. increased its stake in shares of Priceline Group by 163.3% in the first quarter. The current mean price target on the stock is $1881.071 which includes 14 analysts that were polled by Zacks Research.

Microsoft's coming replacement for its Placeholder technology, known as OneDrive Files on Demand, will allow users to access all their files on their various devices through Windows 10 Fall Creators Update's File Explorer. Rather it is part of the company's strategy to motivate developers to create Universal Windows Apps.

If you're a developer, you can also expect the company to talk more about Visual Studio, Xamarin and UWP apps. Microsoft has already acknowledged it won't hit 1 billion in time.

Obviously, when you're offline with your device, you won't be able to open files in OneDrive - but you can always select critical files which are online with a right click, and specify "Always keep on this device" to download them to the local disk.
