Microsoft is reportedly testing a set of new features for its upcoming RedStone 2 update. Though we haven’t seen any features introduced in the mobile OS yet, nonetheless we’ve gotten regular bug fixes and overall performance improvements. In addition, Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum will now feature multi-window support, the ability to use Continuum while the phone is locked, along with a bunch more.

Continuum is basically Microsoft’s next version of mobile computing for businesses. Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum is expected to improve power usage and offer a more PC-like experience on phone screens. Additionally, better toast notifications, support for the system tray and app jumplists, and the ability to pin apps to the taskbar will all be added. See it in action below:

At Ignite 2016, Microsoft demonstrated a demo of their most anticipated feature: multi-window Continuum support for Windows 10 Mobile. With this latest addition, Microsoft is fulfilling its long awaited promise to bring PC functionality to mobile devices. It allows users to resize windows, drag and drop a window to the left to snap it. Microsoft also unveiled some of the in process features it is planning to release this summer:

“The summer update of Windows 10 Mobile delivers some very important updated and new functionality to Microsoft’s mobile OS. Organizations continue to increase their investment in digital transformation with mobility, but encounter challenges.

Windows 10 Mobile delivers enterprise productivity and, the security and manageability that organizations require. They’ll need help, from you and from Windows 10 Mobile. Discover new business opportunities to provide mobility products and services.”

It is safe to say that the new Continuum features would add better multi-tasking support and address the criticism of the company being more inclined towards its desktop OS while leaving its mobile version falling behind. Microsoft sure looks like it has deeply analyzed the issue and the new features are definitely sleek and useful additions. The new features are expected to be released to Windows 10 Mobile in he RedStone 2 in 2017 along with a bunch of new improvements. While 2016 is being called the ‘year for Windows 10 PC’, we strongly hope the next will be directed towards its mobile devices.
