Microsoft Shows New Start Menu for Anniversary Update

Bringing the two organizations together adds cross-platform UI tooling to Microsoft's developer platform, along with the compilers needed to deliver native code to mobile devices. Even though the universal windows platform does get out the burden to separately monitor apps for their own system, the development portal is yet to take-off.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone was strangely missing at the annual Build developer conference in San Francisco.

If you've chose to succumb to the pressure from Windows to upgrade your computer's operating system to Windows 10, then you now have access to Microsoft's AI assistant, Cortana.

"Windows 10 is our home for this evolution, making all of us more productive and enabling us to have more fun", he said, noting that the OS is being used in some form by over 270 million people just eight months after its release. More, those of you who chose to upgrade may be aware that Windows 10 Mobile has dropped support for several Windows Phone 8.1 features such as Notifications on contact tiles, Me Tile and Me Card and tasks management in Outlook calendar.

It should be noted that developers will have to enable the dismiss feature in their apps. That said, Microsoft has basically admitted that Windows Phone would just be a distraction for developers this year. None of them is like the Anniversary Windows 10 Update the company has scheduled for later this year.

Microsoft also released the Skype Bot Platform, which includes the SDK, API and Workflows all in the new Skype Bot Portal.

Lu also shared how conversational interaction will evolve in the future and how developers can immediately start building apps that engage users in meaningful conversations.

The new interface will feature app listings on the left-hand side, but the Settings and Accounts menus will be, however, hidden in a Hamburger menu.

Microsoft announced that Action Center will be stored in cloud and synced across all of your devices.

According to reports, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes with three "secret" features and today we're going to talk about them. Microsoft has more or less backtracked on promises of upgrading a handful of Lumias to Windows 10, and even some capable smartphones from other OEMs, like HTC and BLU Products, are being left out in the cold. It's still a work in progress and Microsoft is encouraging users to weigh in. Called Windows Ink, new tools will let those with a stylus use Windows 10 apps complete with digital rulers and stencils. Windows 10 will not only receive Android notifications, but at the same time, it will allow the user to interact with them.
