Lumia Camera is coming to all Windows phones through Windows 10

109

For a few days now we have been reporting on Microsoft's attempt to "universalize" the Lumia Camera app code for Windows 10. Tonight, we can confirm that this is the case.

Microsoft is taking the Lumia Camera code as the base for the new camera app, including its faster load times, and putting it right into Windows 10. This means that HTC and Samsung devices will soon get those cool manual controls, and new simpler UI found in Lumia Camera 5.0. It should be a part of the upcoming preview next month.

Settings on Windows 10 for Phone and PC are stark and simple

290

The Settings area on Windows PCs has always been a challenge. At once it needs to be simple and easy to navigate, while also letting power users have all the options that they want to change. That is a tall order to fulfil.

Windows 10 completely revamps Settings once again, but this time it trickles down to the phone. Indeed, the Settings on Windows Phone is a bit of a mess with a seemingly endless unorganized list.

192

One of the neater things about Cortana is that the "look" of the personal assistant is dynamic, not built into the OS.

Going forward, Microsoft is still tinkering with how Cortana is organized, dead space and general layout based on user feedback.

The two images you see in this article reveal the subtle changes coming in Windows 10. You can see the Cortana icon is now center instead of to the upper left and some other minor adjustments.

Skype is built into Windows 10 for Phone and has an updatable Messaging app

196

Today, Microsoft unleashed a salvo of news regarding Windows 10. Whether it was news for the desktop OS, gaming or something about holograms, there was something for everyone. After the main event, the press spent a good five hours in private tours of Microsoft's new announcements. Although video was not allowed, there was plenty of nitty-gritty that they revealed. First up, Skype.

Microsoft demoed how the Messaging app on Windows 10 for ­phone lets users switch between Skype messaging or SMS. This change is a total throwback to the early Windows Phone days with the Messaging Hub, and it's a welcome return. However, what about the Skype app—do you still need it for Windows 10 on the phone?

No, you don't. You can still install if you want to, but Skype is native to the Windows 10 OS.
