During the Build 2016 event, Microsoft has revealed some information about the upcoming Redstone update. Specifically, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is expected to be released this summer. Since Windows 10 was released on July 29, 2015, we should expect this update to come in the same period (July 29, 2016).

Most of the new features will be released for Windows Insiders way ahead of its official release date. It seems that some of the new features will actually start rolling out today for Windows Insiders and the update, just like other preview ones, will be available for free for all Windows devices including HoloLens and Xbox One. According to Microsoft, the new update will bring new features to its Hello login feature, improved Cortana functionality, improved pen support, and much more.

With the Anniversary Update, Microsoft will unify stores across Xbox and Windows. In addition, Cortana is coming to Xbox One and we’re pretty sure that this will make many gamers happy.

A conversion tool was also created to turn old and new games into cross-platform apps, helpings developers edit and support notifications, Xbox One controllers, or Live Tiles.

According to Phil Spencer, the two stores will be combined into one, making a thing they say, a sing unified store for devices.
