Microsoft Windows 10 adds Your Phone app for Android texting, photos

Microsoft Launcher 5.0 for Android brings new Feed UI, Timeline support, and more

The exhaustive list of new features available as part of Microsoft's Windows 10 October 2018 Update is available here. 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.

As always, Microsoft is trying to make the gaming experience on Windows 10 nicer for the end user and is upgrading the Game Bar with the October Update. The company says that now your PC's timeline will be available on your phone, so you can scroll back in time to find the files and websites you were using on your phone, computer, and tablet. Each game will use ray tracing differently, with Tomb Raider adding more realistic shadows, Battlefield 5 deploying ray traced reflections, and Metro Exodus using ray tracing for improved ambient occlusion and global illumination to create more natural lighting.

Well, in the recent Surface event that was held by Microsoft, the company introduced a new app that will allow Android users to mirror any app to the Windows 10 computer. The feature will be supported on Windows 10 for the devices running on Android Nougat or later version.

If you are an impatient type of person it is possible to get ahead in the queue by manually checking for updates in Windows.

Raj Kapoor’s wife, Krishna Raj passes away at 87
On Monday, Randhir Kapoor (eldest of Raj Kapoor five children) confirmed his mother died of a cardiac arrest to news agency PTI . We've across with several photographs with a bunch of unseen photographs of Krishna Raj Kapoor with her family members.

Microsoft noted limitations in what you could attach to the Cloud Clipboard. There's also a new icon which will be used to show when you aren't connected to the internet. The update to Windows 10 October 2018 Update will fail due to this issue. If you're dying to have it now, though, you can go into your PC's settings and have it check for updates, per the instructions from Microsoft here.

For its Edge browser, Microsoft in the Windows 10 update has added an offline dictionary, grammar tools, and learning tools in its reading view, and Line Focus.

The SwiftKey smart keyboard will now be integrated into Windows when using the touch keyboard to write in supported languages, including English. I've had this app tell me I'm on "the latest version" even when I'm not.

Microsoft releases these updates twice a year, and they're packed with too many new features and changes in one place - especially when most of them probably won't be noticed by the majority of PC users. Using your digital pen you can quickly snip and share a screenshot using a new toolbar: Windows+Shift+S brings it up.
