Windows 10 April 2018 Update

In a previous article, we’ve briefly mentioned Microsoft’s upcoming Windows update which was widely called the Spring Creators Update. The name now seems to have got changed to Windows 10 April 2018 Update, but the update itself will still provide some new interesting features.

On their blog, Microsoft recently presented some of the features and states the following:

We want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time. Our hope is that you’ll have more time to do what matters most to you – create, play, work or simply do what you love.

The Timeline

The Timeline is one of the features being presented and it looks very useful, but also a bit risky.

Microsoft sees it as a solution for the time we waste when searching for the documents we knew we wrote or the photos and videos we’ve seen and loved but no longer can locate.

With Timeline, your Windows 10 device lets you go back in time up to 30 days to find everything you’ve been working on. If you’re signed in to your Microsoft account while using Microsoft Edge or Office 365 on your Android or iOS device it will also track the activities for you.

The Timeline lets you go back in time up to 30 days.

But that’s what might scare a few people off, that all your activities on the device will get tracked. How Microsoft makes sure the information only is accessible to the device’s owner remains to be seen…

Nevertheless, it’s definitely a cool feature which surely can prove to be a useful tool to many.
