Windows 10 April update arrives on Monday

The new upcoming update will simply be called “April update”. Not Creators update.

This update was supposed to come out on April 10th, but because of a major bug, Microsoft had to postpone the update in order to fix it. Microsoft is now releasing its April update for people to manually download on Monday April 30th, before it’s more broadly rolled out to machines on May 8th.


However, users demanded simplicity in the naming of the updates. So, after some feedback from the users, Microsoft decided to do something about the names of the updates.
“I think people were really craving a lot more simplicity,” explains Aaron Woodman, a director at Microsoft, in an interview with The Verge. “We floated a number of different names to a lot of customers that provided that proactive feedback, and really the simplest way to help people understand the update was to give it a time that people can clearly understand and works really globally much more efficiently.”

The Windows 10 April 2018 update includes a new Timeline feature for recalling previous apps you were working on across machines, or even the ability to open your browsing history from Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android. Microsoft is also adding a new dictation feature, alongside an improved Focus Assist feature for silencing notifications. Microsoft’s Edge browser is also getting a mute tab feature with this update, and the company is refreshing its Xbox Game Bar with a new design.

Other than that, there isn’t anything else big. All of the other things are fairly minor, but the changes are definitely welcome. However, in the next update, Redstone 5 (that’s the name for now), which is due later this year, you will see some new changes – a dark file explorer is one of the biggest changes. Of course, you can switch between black and white.
