Twitter has just released a new update for its Windows 10 universal app, thus bringing even more improvements on devices running Microsoft’s new operating system, be they PCs, smartphones, or tablets.
Twitter hasn’t provided any release notes for this new version, so it’s believed that the update is specifically here to fix bugs and improve performance, as some users previously complained that the app sometimes fails to refresh the timeline or experiences occasional slowdowns.
While it’s not yet clear if this update fixes these complaints, this is the third pack of improvements received by the official Twitter app on Windows 10 in just a couple of months, and this shows the company’s commitment to stick with the platform.
Microsoft is in the middle of a broad effort to convince more developers join the universal app bandwagon and companies like Twitter can serve as an example that Windows 10 is a big opportunity, especially because they can target a growing audience. Approximately 300 million devices are already running Windows 10 and Microsoft has a goal of bringing the new OS on 1 billion by 2017, so all these figures are likely to grow more in the coming months.
Without a doubt, this new Twitter update is worth the download, so go ahead and get it right now from the store, no matter if you use a phone or a PC with Windows 10.
Microsoft today announced that its Kinect sensor device will be able to deliver more data to Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, starting with the release of the forthcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
This was a feature many users complained about and few used.
Based on the current market penetration numbers, only 15 percent of the world is using Windows 10 while almost half of the world is still using Windows 7.
Microsoft's latest preview build release for the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone update, meanwhile, removed the WiFi Sense feature that was criticized by many as a potential security hole.
The new build also contains a slew of fixes for known issues such as problems with DRM-protected content, bugs causing audio content to crash and an issue causing the search box on the Language Settings page to crash.
With fingerprint support for Windows Mobile 10 OS set to become available in Summer 2016, fans of the OS can look forward to some interesting smartphone offerings from Microsoft. However, now it notifies that it has already scheduled an update for an XXX date.
The Windows 10 upgrade includes an option to rollback to your previous version of Windows, as long as you do so within 30 days. There are chances that some users might not notice the pop-up and might find that their PC is stuck trying to upgrade to Windows 10 or hogging bandwidth while Windows 10 downloads. While upgrades to Apple's Mac OS have been available at no cost for years, until last year Windows had managed to continually dominate the OS market while charging users a premium for the latest version. If you install a retail version of Windows 7 or 8 on a new device after July the 29th, that device will not be eligible for a free upgrade. This means that you can return to Windows 10 at a later time without losing your license. Thus, Microsoft needs to figure out another chipset, capable of running the Surface Phone to make it useful to businesses. Indeed, today's announcement comes with a pointed reminder that users who have not yet taken advantage of the free upgrade should do so now because time is running out. Instead, you would need to go to the Microsoft website and follow the directions for the upgrade.
