The launch of Windows 10 on the 29th of July 2015 marked the dawn of an era. Who would have thought that Microsoft would offer up its latest operating system as a free upgrade to all its users? After all, the company has built billions of dollars selling its operating system and other software to the users over the last 30 years. While desktop and laptop users are busy upgrading to the latest version of the OS, a lot has been said and written about the pros of the latest OS.
The company has officially set November for the launch of Windows 10 Mobile and also released the technical preview through which we can clearly sniff what’s in store for the Windows 10 Mobile. Here are a few reasons why you should upgrade your Windows app to Windows 10 when it’s available.
Death of Windows Phone
Microsoft is signaling the death of Windows Phone as a separate entity and beginning an era where a single operating system would cater to the users across all platforms. The Continuum feature makes Windows all the more adaptable. Whether you are using a touch based device or one with keyboard and mouse, you can easily switch between them without any hassle.
Did you wish you could resize Live Tiles the way you wanted? Yes Windows 10 allows you to make Tiles of your choice larger. Along with this it is expected to make a number of other personalization options available that would make your life easy with the phone and give Android and iOS a run for their money.
One of the major stories of Windows 10 development has been with the Universal Apps. Microsoft has brought in a range of apps including Office and Outlook that would seamlessly work across all the platforms. There would be no compromises with the features of these apps whether they are used on smartphones or desktops.
Skype and Messaging
In Windows 10 Mobile the messaging app has integrated the calling through Skype feature – one of Microsoft’s best acquisitions. The voice over IP (VoIP) service, which was so far a standalone app, will work seamlessly with your messaging app. In this new feature different messaging services have been differentiated by different colors but all of these now have been brought under a new stream.
New Age Browsing
We all loved to hate Internet Explorer, didn’t we? It was often a butt of jokes in an era dominated by the likes of Chrome, Opera and Firefox. Microsoft Edge (aka Project Spartan) replaces IE and promises to be faster than the existing browsers and brings a whole lot of things to browsing. It would even allow users to make and share clippings from a Web page, and PDF support. Cortana the intelligent personal assistant which debuted in Windows 8.1 has also been built into the browser
