  • Windows Timeline is coming to Android in the Microsoft Launcher

With the recent demotion of the EVP for Windows and Devices, Terry Myerson, we're seeing a push from the company to develop around Windows, rather than for it. Diane Bryant, a former Intel executive who is now at Google's cloud, told Wired that Microsoft was the reason Intel bought Altera. Microsoft is quoting the expectation for there to be 20 billion smart devices around the globe by 2020.

At Build 2018 today, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella unveiled Project Kinect for Azure. It's Microsoft's attempt to integrate high-tech hand tracking and spatial mapping technologies with Azure's machine learning, cognitive services, and IoT Edge.

The firm today announced Project Kinect for Azure, which is described as, "a package of sensors from Microsoft that contains our unmatched time of flight depth camera, with onboard compute, in a small power-efficient form factor - designed for AI on the Edge".

Under the drone partnership, DJI will use the Azure cloud computing service as a "preferred cloud provider" (it can still choose competing cloud companies like Google, example), and will create a software development kit that works with Windows 10. As expected, the company made announcements focusing on emerging tech like artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and machine learning.

DJI's SDK is available as part of a beta preview for attendees at Microsoft Build. The company unveiled a new app, Your Phone, which will provide "a window into a user's phone right from their PC for seamless transition of content like messages, photos and notifications".

While Microsoft has moved away from Windows as an operating system for smartphones, the company is now focused on enabling users to more easily interact between Windows PCs and their iOS or Android device.

The packaging of products like Your Phone and the company's Android launcher are apps that deliver value to those that are "all-in" in the Microsoft ecosystem but the company does not have an easy way to market these benefits. This new experience will begin to roll out in the Windows Insider Program soon. Sets will allow you to open multiple instances of your apps in tabs, just like you would use your browser. So, the Xbox users need to wait a few more weeks in order to get the updates related to Xbox.
