This includes the "Your Phone" feature, which will allow users to mirror an Android device to a Windows 10 PC, providing access to apps, texts and regular notifications.

Solid details are scarce right now, but an official blog post describes the app as a way to "bridge the gap between your iOS and Android devices and your PC".

Microsoft has officially announced Windows 10 October 2018 Update roll-out via Windows Update now. You have the luxury to choose the easiest or most suitable method to install Creators Update on your PC. But before you go off and take time to manually update your operating system, you might be wondering why you should bother.

Microsoft is expected to ship a new cumulative update for Windows 10 October 2018 Update with a fix for the Task Manager bug and other issues.

There's also some really nice features that should improve productivity, like a cloud clipboard that will let you save and pin items you often copy and paste, rather than only having the previous copied item in memory.

'I had one beer, right?': Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accuser's testimony
Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to fill the seat of Republican Thad Cochran, who retired in April. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.


The latest Windows 10 version is also compatible with Nvidia's latest "Ray Tracing" technology that's said to make lighting more realistic for video games.

Microsoft announced the big new changes with this release via its Windows blog, with numerous new productivity-focused features discussed. The company says that the global will be rolled out via Windows Update in the coming weeks. Soon, it will be made available for the iPhone users also. As before, you can send a web link to your computer to pick up where you left off. Microsoft has been talking for a while about DirectX-level support, and the new Windows update delivers.

Windows 10 has had patchy success in making the most of high-end HDR displays, but the October update could help with that.

This should hopefully mean that ray-tracing updates for games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider aren't far off now, as DXR support means that all DirectX 12 Windows PC can now play nicely with any game or application that supports real-time ray-tracing. Additionally, SwiftKey is now available on the touch keyboard.

The best way to find it is to search for "make text bigger" in the Windows 10 search bar.
