The new major Windows 10 update will arrive in less than two weeks. The so-called Creators Update will integrate a good number of corrections, improvements and innovations, many of which are precisely directed, as its name indicates, to creators and digital artists.
Microsoft bosses have confirmed that this update will begin to be offered automatically and gradually to users as of April 11. New 3D design tools, native mixed reality support and practical new features, such as support for a night light mode, are some of the keys to the update according to Microsoft.
Updated for creators and gamers
In this update one of the main novelties is the arrival of Paint 3D for all users of Windows 10. It is the first time that the legendary application Paint is renewed so ambitious, and in this case offers tools to create objects in 3D in Simple way.
To this novelty, we add the integration of “mixed reality technology” that will soon allow Windows 10 users to enjoy immersive experiences in which augmented reality and virtual reality are mixed. Manufacturers such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP or Lenovo will offer the first mixed-spectacles glasses from $ 299 at the end of the year, and that’s when we can judge whether or not Microsoft’s proposal is as striking as it sounds.
There are also new features in the videogames segment, but only in those that make their live games. In Creators Update we have Beam, an application that helps to make this type of video streaming with games that we can enjoy both on the PC and Xbox One. The “very low” latency tries to help the creators of this type of content to distribute those videos easily.
Practical improvements, even more interesting
There are also changes in the browser Microsoft Edge, which according to Microsoft will save battery in laptops, and also helps avoid phishing threats and malware. In the field of practical improvements, highlight the new night light mode that adapts brightness and colors of the screen when used at night.
Also at the practical level, it is interesting to play in mini mode with a small window in PiP mode so that you can see an overlayed window with the video with a series or with a videoconference anywhere on our screen while performing any other task.
Especially striking is the new Windows Hello option that will make it possible to use any paired iOS, Android or Windows Phone device to detect when we move away from the computer and automatically block it. New controls on updates and privacy have also been added, with which they hope to be able to tackle the criticisms that have recently emerged regarding Windows 10 on these issues.
