Microsoft has introduced some new features in their latest Windows 10 update including the introduction of their Timeline feature as well as Focus Assist and more.


Timeline was a feature that was originally supposed to arrive in the Fall Creators Update last year but Microsoft delayed the feature until their spring update.

Timeline allows users to go back in time to find their stuff and continue working where they left off, whether it was earlier in the day, last week or weeks ago. You can go back in time with Microsoft Edge or Office 365.

It even works if you’re using those apps on your Android or iOS device, you can go back in time on your Windows 10 PC.

Focus Assist

Focus Assist is a feature that will help you focus without any distractions like social media or notifications. You can set Focus Assist to turn on automatically at certain times of the day to help you keep focused.


Dictation in the latest update has also gotten an improvement. Microsoft has made it easier to take notes just by using their voice.

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft’s web browser, Edge is also getting some new features in the update. Some of the new features include mute-a-tab, full-screen reading, clutter-free printing, grammar tools and autofill on web forms.

Also in the new update, you’ll be able to use Cortana to control your smart home products using your voice. Cortana works with products such as Philips Hue, ecobee, Honeywell, Nest, Lifx and more.

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update will be available for download on April 30th and rollout to Windows 10 PC globally on May 8th.
