Windows 10 Creators Update brings a new media sharing feature called Belize

As we get closer and closer to the release of Microsoft’s Creators Update for Windows 10, yet another feature surfaces showing off the upcoming functionalities of the operating system. The latest feature to have been uncovered is called Belize and will be associated with media sharing.

The Belize entity was discovered by a user rummaging through the folder pertaining to the Microsoft Photos service. There were multiple files and properties carrying the Belize identity, including a logo, an image and even intro music, with the image file itself carrying the message “Tell your story”.

For those not familiar with Hockeyapp, it is a testing platform for applications under Microsoft’s ownership ever since the Windows developer bought the platform in 2014. QR codes for the Hockeyapp platform were also found among the Belize files, one for each major mobile OS (Android, iOS and Windows Phone).

This isn’t the first time we hear about this upcoming feature — the story can be traced all the way back in the month of May. At that time, it was reported that Microsoft was seeking people interested in a job opportunity through its job page, Microsoft Careers. The job offer stated that it would pertain to a “digital memories platform” project and that the work would be done for a Microsoft-owned studio called Evoke.

All these clues point towards a service or feature called Belize, which is most likely going to dabble in both photo and video sharing. What that implies exactly is not yet confirmed, as the implications of such a platform could be many. Hopefully, Microsoft will deliver a viable tool which will be used to both facilitate and enhance media sharing.
