Microsoft is reported to announce Ubuntu Linux runs on Windows 10

"Bots are the new apps", Nadella told developers.

Forza Motorsport 6 Apex, the new version of the racing game released a few months ago on Xbox One, is only one of the few titles that are being developed on the Universal Windows Platform for Windows 10.

Web developers, including American Express, BBC Sport, Yahoo Mail, zulily and more, have seen great success with Windows 10 Hosted Web Apps.

The feature brings interactive, animated bots to Skype that users can interact with and developers can use to build experiences for their services. Otherwise, it doesn't seem like much of a change from the status quo ante. Cortana then used Skype to contact a hotel chain's bot, which suggested a room and helped Rincon make a reservation for those dates.

New Windows Hello features extend the security of Windows 10 to multiple devices and to Microsoft Edge so that you can log into your devices and websites with enterprise-grade security.

As Windows 10 updates release, Cortana will no more sit on one place.

The digital assistant which thrives across Windows 10 devices, including on desktop and laptops, will integrate with more external apps to make smart decisions and recommendations.

According to many this is the subset that Microsoft developed for Project Astoria, which was project to port Android apps to Windows, but recently the company had announced that it had shelved the project.

Windows 10 is now in use in 270 million devices, the tech giant said yesterday, hailing a strong debut for the multiplatform operating system launched a year ago. This Windows 10 assistant may now also respond to commands like, "Hey Cortana, shut down the PC!" The mobile app is getting Cortana support and intelligent bots that let you carry out various activities from inside Skype. There is still some time left, and Microsoft believes it can achieve this target since the number isn't restricted to just PCs, but also includes tablets, phones, and even the Xbox One console.
