Windows "April 2018" update rolling out from today

Microsoft releases these big updates twice a year. Recently, Apple iTunes made it to Microsoft Store. It will be available for download beginning Monday, April 30. The ability to defer feature updates is only part of Windows 10 Pro, however.

Once Focus Assist is turned on, it will block all the social media notifications, emails, and other distractions from popping on the screen. For those who are signed up for the Windows 10 Insider program, the new build can be accessed through Settings Update Security Windows Update Tab Advanced Get Windows Insider Builds Get Started.

Focus Assist can be switched on when necessary, or set up for specific times if you're looking to get some work done without any distractions.

When you're finishing with your work or important assignments, you'll then receive a full summary of what you missed while you were in Focus mode.

Microsoft's not said exactly when the downloads kick in.

Google Chrome continues to lead the way when it comes to internet browsers but Microsoft is still working hard to make sure its Edge browser keeps up with the competition.

With the new update, enterprises will be able to monitor their delivery optimisation status using Windows Analytics, which includes information such as how many devices are enabled and the bandwidth savings they have achieved by using the new delivery optimisation tool.

Once updated, Edge adds a new audio icon to mute and unmute a tab that is playing sound. Microsoft Edge will also get new clutter-free printing option to take print-out of web pages in a cleaner format.

Whole new Timeline feature allows users to manage their past activities including web browsing sessions, apps & software and also various activities from Microsoft apps on Android and iOS devices.

That's why they are introducing something called Timeline.

The headline feature of Microsoft's incoming update is Timeline, a long-promised feature that lets Windows users view recent activity from the past 30 days. So you can pick up things where you left them. "With our latest major release - the Windows 10 April 2018 Update - we want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time", Yusuf Mehdi, the corporate vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, wrote in a blog post on Friday. Dictation is basically a speech to text.
