We’re just a few hours before Microsoft kickstarts its most important event of the year – Build 2016. Microsoft is expected to talk about Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox, HoloLens and many other products and services under its portfolio.

The event kicks off at 11:30AM ET / 8:30AM PT, and you will be available to follow it live. But if you don’t have time to watch the stream live, or you’re at work and must watch it muted, then we invite you to bookmark this page and rest assured that we will be as timely as possible.

The Redstone update for Windows 10 is another big focus point of the event, and maybe other topics such as Ubuntu integration in Windows 10, talks about recent acquisitions and expansions.

And before you’re asking, no, Microsoft won’t be announcing Windows 11, but what could surprise us all could be some sort of VR capability for the Xbox, considering all the fuss around the subject. And, who knows, maybe there’s a chance to see the Surface phone, as well?
