In February, Hulu released its all-new app for Windows 10 for PC, tablet, and mobile devices. The app is perfectly synced with Windows 10 features like Cortana and Live Tiles, sporting an adaptive, responsive layout. Now, Hulu has released its first important update on the Windows Store – and it’s a doozy.

Hulu on Windows 10 improves launch speed and gets Cortana improvements

According to the official version notes, Hulu has been updated to launch faster, but unfortunately, we haven’t been able to test that since the app crashed right after we installed the update. We hope it’s just a rare situation and that the app does indeed launch faster.

Another important part of this update is that it comes with Cortana improvements as well, meaning voice search has been refined to potentially be more accurate. Again, we weren’t able to test this ourselves but we’ll take Hulu’s word for it.

Another minor improvement to the UI is that there’s now the SW/HW DRM switching option in the settings page. Hulu also says they’ve fixed the playback stuttering issue using the SW DRM solution and that more general bug fixes have been released, as well.

If you don’t have Hulu yet running on your Windows 10 device, go ahead and get it now from the Windows Store. Or, if you’re a fan of Netflix, make sure you’ve updated it to the most recent version.
