Microsoft Unveils New Windows, Mixed-Reality Features

Kayla Schwartz | 14 May, 2017, 07:41

While Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella pushed the Office and applications business to focus on versions for rival mobile operating systems three years ago, the role of Windows in that new world has been an open question. During the Day 1 keynote of its BUILD developers conference in Seattle yesterday, Microsoft said that there are now over 1,000 converted desktop apps in the store.

Microsoft's Build developer conference is bringing a lot of news about Windows and Microsoft's other endeavors.

Perhaps, number one on the many Windows 10 users list is a refinement and cohesiveness missing from many corners of the operating system. While both Xamarin.Forms and the Universal Windows Platform use XAML for designing interfaces, the actual syntax is slightly different, which is what the new Standard is created to help with.

This article first appeared on MyBroadband and is republished with permission. That version, Windows 10 S, can only get apps through the store, not directly from third parties such as Apple.

Microsoft recently committed to March and September updates for Windows 10 until further notice.

We fixed an issue where the Windows Store App Troubleshooter was erroneously showing the message "Not Fixed" instead of "Fixed" after following the steps to troubleshoot the error "Windows Store cache may be damaged".

With the Xamarin Live Player developers can build, test and debug their iPhone applications from a Windows PC.

Microsoft will also make a Story Remix app for devices running Apple's iOS and Google's Android to help people share images from their children's soccer games and other events. "The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will also see the magic of mixed reality brought to consumers around the world". Of course you can already install iTunes on Windows.

Microsoft unveiled its own motion controllers for Windows 10 VR, and it showed off an impressive demo with Cirque du Soleil. Our increasing dependence on iOS and Android smartphones is thought to be one of the key reasons for the move.

Microsoft is also introducing a feature called Story Remix, which is essentially a photo and video album tool that enables transitions and 3D objects.

The Acer Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition is priced at $299 Dollars and the HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition is priced at $329 USD.

Microsoft didn't say when Fall Creators Update will come out.
