Microsoft wants developers to finish the final touched for the new Windows 10 update and to release it. Therefore, the Redmond-based company has released the update to allow developers begin building apps. The Windows 10: Fall Creator update SDK is to be released on the 17th of October and it is the fourth major update.
Features available with the new SDK
The new update brings tools which are used to build apps for Microsoft’s Mixed Reality. The tools are also used to modernize apps and to use the Fluent Design system and well as enabling apps to connect using Android and iOS to Windows PC.
So far the update was only available to Windows Insider Program developers.
According to Microsoft, 80 % of the more than 500 million monthly active devices running Windows 10 are using the latest version in less than a year. The last update was in 2015 and it follows the November Update, the Anniversary and the Creators updates.
Microsoft has teamed up with Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Samsung in order to add up more mixed reality to go on sale.
For those interested in Windows 10 Mobile, the company has already announced that it has given up on it and the plan is to shift the focus towards Project Rome and Microsoft Graph (known as Office 365 unified API). These projects enable device relay and activity feed.
Device relay allows customers to continue from where they left by using a different device and Activity Feed. Developers are also allowed access to remote systems, as well as APIs sessions which will enable applications to communicate with the user of the device. This will be available for Windows, Android and iOS devices. The Continue on PC feature is also available to developers.
