Windows 10 is due for an update this month and now it appears Microsoft has confirmed it will be called April update.
A recent Edge browser upgrade, to build 17134, has revealed here that the new Windows 10 refresh will be called April update.
That previously rumoured name of Spring update appears to have been false after all.
So what new features can we expect from the April update to Windows 10?
There are a few teases so far that include a change in the timeline.
You should soon be able to resume previous activities in the timeline which could make for a more seamless way of working, even when taking breaks.
This appears to work by letting you scroll through windows of activity and simply selecting where you want to jump back in.
Another feature will allow you to more easily share files with nearby devices. Yea, this does sound a bit like Apple’s AirDrop – but that’s no bad thing as it really works well.
This does appear to be a Windows to Windows computer-based sharing system, but it may end up reaching further across varying devices.
Microsoft has also rebuilt the Game Bar to offer a new Fluent design user interface that should make the experience far more friendly and easy.
There will now be a diagnostic data viewing tool in the security and privacy section for those that want a bit more in-depth information on what’s happening on their Windows 10 machine.
Cortana also appears to be getting an upgrade which will allow the voice-controlled smart assistant to be used more easily via a new Organizer interface and My Skills tab.
Microsoft also says it has listened to feedback from its customers and is now making this upgrade a lot smoother.
Now, rather than the 82 minute update time of the Creators release, or the 51 minutes offline update time of the Fall Creators update, the April update should take just 30 minutes.
There may still be a delay on the update itself, despite the April name.
Reports of a bug being discovered could end up pushing back the already delayed update. But with that April name already public it seems likely Microsoft will stick to this month for release
