On Monday, April 30th, Microsoft will release their Windows 10 April 2018 update

Microsoft announced today that the next Windows 10 Update will begin rolling out on April 30th. This is the first of the two major updates that are expected to be released every year.

Microsoft’s main feature for this update is Timeline. Timeline was originally set to be part of the Fall Creators Update, but was delayed.

Timeline is described as an easy way to search through all of the activities you’ve performed on your device for up to 30 days. This includes activities in apps, files, and websites. It also has the ability to open your browsing history from Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android.

Microsoft has also added a new feature which allows for talk to type called Dictation. To start dictating with it, all you’ll need to do is select a text field, then press the Windows logo key + H to open the dictation toolbar.

They’ve also added an improved Quiet Hours that has been renamed to Focus Assist. This feature silences notifications from social media, application alerts, and other interruptions.

The Microsoft Edge browser is also going to receive a handy mute tab feature.

For those that use the Xbox Game Bar to capture video, broadcast their gameplay online, take screenshots, and/or quickly access the Xbox app, the Xbox Game Bar is getting a new design in this update.

It seems that Microsoft is definitely bringing their A game with these updates and their update due later this year shouldn’t disappoint. That update is supposed to include clever tabs for apps and a dark mode for File Explorer.
