Microsoft Shows Off Start Menu Changes Being Considered For Anniversary Update

Company CEO Satya Nadella admitted that Tay wasn't a competent functionality yet, and promised that Microsoft is still planning to develop a bot and that they are now "back to the drawing board", The Telegraph added.

Microsoft said it would introduce an update of the operating system in the coming months that will make Windows 10 available for its Xbox One game console and enable multiple devices to use the Microsoft digital assistant known as Cortana.

All Xbox One consoles can now be turned into dev kits, Microsoft announced at Build 2016 yesterday.

Getting notifications to appear in Windows 10's notification center will be possible through Microsoft's Cortana app for Android. Myerson announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, aimed to deliver significant new innovations for consumers and developers for the Universal Windows Platform.

Personal assistant Cortana is to get an even bigger role as Microsoft rolls out its Windows 10 anniversary update later this year. You should be ale to do that on your Windows PC instead without unlocking your Android phone. Cortana will now be more intelligent on expected lines and also be available to Windows 10 users from the lock screen itself.

Apple already has its own notification mirroring though, with iOS on your iPhone and iPad able to talk with your Mac but unsurprisingly the Cupertino firm hasn't looked to extend this notification sharing to Android or Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft is also encouraging more people to start developing apps and games by making the process easier. Sticky notes can be created, or ideas drawn as they would be on a whiteboard. The latter is more focused on notifications and will require the use of Cortana.

With the world's most popular desktop OS supporting the world's most popular mobile OS, Microsoft is proving they really are a force to be reckoned with.

Other things coming with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update include the expansion of the Windows Hello security feature to apps and the Edge browser, the new Windows Ink feature, improvements to Cortana and modifications to the Xbox One.
