1. A unified Windows 10 experience
Windows 10 is getting an upgrade under the name ‘Anniversary Update’. This update will bring features like an improved ‘Ink’ system, biometric passwords in the Edge browser and a ton of new developer tools, including native Linux Bash built into command prompt. Also, Xbox will receive this Anniversary Update. Microsoft also announced developer APIs for the Xbox One, and created a developer mode that can be accessed on any Xbox One.
2. HoloLens Developer Edition
3. Bots & intelligence everywhere
There you go! These were the biggest announcements from the keynote. The Verge compiled a 15 minute summary of the event which you can watch below.
Considering Microsoft is handicapped in developer community, the Build keynote is pushing hard to promote developer support for Microsoft’s services. Indeed Microsoft is aiming high with the bots platform and HoloLens, and I can only hope they become successful in making these services available for consumers as early as possible. A new era of Microsoft has begun - expanding from desktop computing to unified, intelligent and futuristic experiences.
