Microsoft will bring important updates for Windows 10 in a next way. According to Windows Central, the company is about to introduce important and highly-requested features for the OS in 2021. The OS has been in use since 2015, and since then evolved to become a mature software. The company is about to introduced Windows 10X. The version that has been believed to come for dual-display devices, will actually stand as a lightweight version of low-end PCs. Of course, Motorola will improve it for dual-screen devices in the future. However, one of the most notable and upcoming features is support for Android apps in the OS.
Windows 10X will arrive in the first half of 2021. The software has been delayed after all the uncertainties and disruptions caused by the ongoing pandemic. The new OS is meant for ARM-based computers and comes to compete with ChromeOS and iPadOS. This year’s, Apple unveiled macOS Big Sur with ARM-based support and iPhone apps compatibility. The new OS was introduced to support the Apple M1, the company’s first ARM-based chipset. Microsoft is aware of the new trend for ARM-based computers, so it needs to prepare its software for the switch. Of course, Windows 10X will also support Win32 applications with a future update.
Windows 10 will receive support for Android Apps and other interesting features next year.
Microsoft stated that is considering the idea of bringing Android apps into the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 sometime next year. Well, Microsoft mobile OS attempts proved to be a failure. For that reason, the company may stick with Android and its applications. According to the report, Microsoft is planning a minor update in the first half of 2021. It will prepare the framework for another, major update coming in H2 2021. The giant will launch an x86 emulation program. It will allow ARM-based PCs to run regular desktop programs. Windows Central states that these features will enter preview soon, but will launch only in 2021.
Microsoft will also introduce an interesting feature dubbed “Cloud PC”. This service will allow users to stream a Windows 10 instance over an internet connection to run high-resource programs without local hardware. It’s an interesting concept and we are curious to see how this will work in the real life. In the same way, players will be able to stream games running on a remote computer.
If 2020 has been a quiet year for WIndows 10 enthusiasts, the next year is shaping up to be an exciting year for the operating system. Previous reports revealed that the OS will receive its biggest update ever in the next year. Of course, only time will tell if these claims are accurate. Microsoft, obviously, can’t keep a low profile now that Apple is advancing with its M1-powered MacBook and macOS Big Sur.
