Windows Sets is currently one of the most important Windows 10 features ready for testing in the latest Redstone 5 builds. Microsoft keeps working on new features, and it recently released support for some Win32 apps including Office 2016 and File Explorer. Build 2018 is going strong and Joe Belfiore made some exciting announcements.
Windows Sets is still in development until further notice
Besides a new revamped Cortana UI which is currently in the works, he also revealed that support for Windows Sets in the Windows Timeline is on its way to Windows Insiders. On its way doesn’t also mean that we know precisely when it will reach its destination, but nonetheless, the news is still exciting.
What we mean by this is that we’re not sure whether the Windows Sets would be ready to come packed in the next significant Windows 10 update later in the fall. Here are Belfiore’s exact words: Windows Sets will “be available when we think it’s great.” This means that Sets could also be delayed to the next year or the year after that or who knows.
Windows Sets could change the way users interact with Windows
On the other hand, it might be a good thing that the tech giant is not rushing anything involving Windows Sets because it’s a vital feature that has the potential of completely changing the ways in which Windows 10 users interact with the OS. A bit of in-depth information about this new feature could probably also come in handy for the users because we’re pretty sure that it could be confusing at first. Until then, it’s interesting to see what the new builds will bring.
As we already said, Belfiore also mentioned a redesigned Cortana UI that may become more proactive and offer more relevant suggestions to its users based on their work. As exciting as this may seem, it also touches the sensitive area of user privacy which must be further analyzed.
