Windows Mixed Reality sales could be driven by new Halo experience

Windows Mixed Reality sales could be driven by new Halo experience

Microsoft also announced partnerships with Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo, which will start selling Windows Mixed Reality headsets and motion controllers.

"With the Fall Creators Update we are introducing some fun new ways to get creative", he enthused.

When you look at what's coming in the new code, however, it appears that the update is more of an incremental addition rather than anything really game-changing, albeit with a few caveats. The best part is that the OneDrive files can be accessed without having to sync the folder in entirety.

This also applies to Timeline-supported Microsoft apps running on your smartphone. Users should expect each feature update to receive 18 months of support before Microsoft require users to be on a current release in order to continue receiving updates and support.

For those without a headset, there will be a Mixed Reality viewer within Windows 10 on desktop.

The company has also improved Game Mode with the FCU, allowing you to "use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console", from a button on the Game Bar. Starting at $350, the Lenovo Explorer fits the bill nicely with its widespread functionality: users can watch 4K TV shows, view 360-degree video, play VR games, and even use the headset for productivity via Windows programs like Excel. As part of this effort, the first batch of Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be available on October 17. Headsets and motion controllers (starting at $299) from these companies are expected to be release along with the Fall Creators Update on October 17, notes PCMag.

Microsoft's push comes as the US tech giants - Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook, along with China's Baidu - increasingly battle to make augmented reality, together with artificial intelligence and cloud-based services, into the next computer platform. Then it will hit Windows Update.

As always, there are Windows Defender improvements to keep your system more secure, and there are accessibility improvements as well. Microsoft will also be tossing in a universal clipboard, one that allows you to copy paste things back and forth between phones and PCs.
