Microsoft Releasing Creators Update to Phones on April 25

Then, Cable writes that the firm will "iterate this process over a period of several months" until every last of the 400-odd million Windows 10 devices download the Creators Update.

Microsoft also upped the security and privacy in the new update that let a user choose the experience with Windows. A single press of the Xbox button on the controller brings up the guide, no matter what you're doing.

The first thing one would notice post the update is the new look of the Home Screen.

With the update, one can directly stream their Xbox gameplay from the Guide on their Xbox One.

Players can now live stream a video session with friends using the broadcasting service of the game, called Beam Streaming. And Microsoft claims there are other attractive features in Edge that will make the users choose the browser as the default one on their devices. These not only lend a new lease of life to the hardware, it also helps to augment the capability of the hardware to boot.

Microsoft have announced that the much-anticipated update to the Xbox One dashboard is rolling out today. Clocking in at just under 1GB, this update is a substantial one that changes the way we interface with the console. The mini view feature, on the other hand, is a picture-in-picture mode of sorts that allows you to keep a small video or Skype window on top of other applications.

Microsoft's own Beam streaming service has come to the console as part of its March 2017 update, giving Xbox One owners a new option for showcasing their Destiny skills or Mass Effect adventures. "As we've said, this is just the beginning - be on the lookout for more great features", said Microsoft.

New Multitasking With Cortana, the multitasking features were created to act more like the new Guide and prioritize specific features.

The in-game Guide got a big overhaul and that's most apparent in the customizable new Achievement Tracker.

Microsoft recently confirmed that it is going to roll out the Windows 10 Creators Update to all of its users on April 11. If you're enrolled in the Insider program, the necessary ISO files are available via Microsoft's Software Download website. However, as soon as the Creators Update gets released on April 11, users will automatically receive the cumulative update.

The announcement is indeed a milestone, since most Xbox One users were previously using Twitch from Amazon to chat with other gamers online.
