Microsoft is Bringing Android App Mirroring to Windows 10

Microsoft is Bringing Android App Mirroring to Windows 10

Windows 10 users upgrading to version 1809 can also mirror their Apple iOS and Android devices on their computers, and sync content to a limited extent with the Your Phone app. You can drag and drop photos, or copy and past text from the SMS app, allowing you a fairly broad range of functionality from your Windows 10 desktop.

The Windows 10 October Update will likely begin automatically downloading for many of you over the next few days, so expect to see an update on your machine soon.

Generally speaking, if you have automatic updates installed, the Windows 10 October 2018 update will start going out in waves on October 9. Windows 10 gets new features, and your phone gets new apps to connect them. It says that this will mean that your PC will prompt you to complete the update that it downloads in the coming weeks.

This is a nice little addition that gives you more control over what's using up your Windows 10 laptop's battery life. "Available now in the Windows 10 October 2018 update". It's also possible to now download this version from Microsoft's Download Windows 10 website in ISO form.

Microsoft announced the big new changes with this release via its Windows blog, with numerous new productivity-focused features discussed. You can even send and receive texts.

Theresa May dancing to ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' will make you wince
Understandably, May's moves divided opinion but the overriding reaction from users on Twitter was one of amusement. Her speech was aimed at providing an upbeat vision for Britain post-Brexit - and after eight years of austerity.

Game Mode is now enabled by default for all games on your system, with a single on/off toggle available in Windows settings.

In a blog post announcing the release, Microsoft reiterated comments made by Nvidia and many game developers in the past; that ray tracing is the "holy grail" of graphics. Using your digital pen you can quickly snip and share a screenshot using a new toolbar: Windows+Shift+S brings it up.

SwiftKey will now power the typing experience on Windows' touch keyboard in English (United States), English (United Kingdom), French (France), German (Germany), Italian (Italy), Spanish (Spain), Portuguese (Brazil), or Russian.

Only three games will support the API thus far, two of which aren't out yet: Metro Exodus, Battlefield 5, which doesn't launch until mid-November, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I did this, not because I wanted to update early, but to check the process.
