Windows Timeline

Microsoft revealed the Windows Timeline features in Build 2017, and this was supposed to roll out together with the Fall Creators Update, but unfortunately, this didn’t happen because the feature was delayed.

It seems that now Windows Timeline will finally make its way to the next major update which appears to be scheduled for next spring.

Windows Timeline spotted in the latest Windows 10 build

With the latest build, the company included the very first traces of Windows Timeline feature. If you didn’t know, Windows Timeline uses the cloud to sync all of your devices so that users will be able to switch between them.

These devices include Android and iOS phones. Microsoft built Timeline into the Task View for Windows 10 that comes with an overview of apps that are currently running on Windows 10 systems and iOS and Android devices as well.

The last build comes with a new privacy setting option that links straight to your Microsoft Privacy Dashboard. Here’ you’ll be able to see the data which will become included in the Windows Timeline.

If you head to Microsoft Privacy page and click on Activity History, you will see everything from your current location, to your text searches and voice. All these will be included in Windows Timeline shortly.

How to turn off the speech services and location access

You can delete the data that you don’t want to appear there. You will only be seeing that information because you’ve provided Microsoft permission to collect it.

If you’re uncomfortable with the whole situation, you can head to Start – Settings – Privacy- Speech, inking & typing and select Turn off speech services and typing suggestions.

To prevent Microsoft from tracking your location, you can go to Settings –Privacy – Location Services and turn off location access.
