Windows Phone

New information about the next major Windows and Windows Phone update has come forward in numerous LinkedIn profiles. Codenamed Threshold, the update will cover multiple devices running not only the company's desktop OS, but also mobile hardware too.

The LinkedIn profiles mentioning 'Threshold' are important because it's one of the first instances of the term being used by Microsoft employees in a public space. However, while these are clear signs the company is indeed working on Threshold, the LinkedIn profiles fail to provide any details as to what is in the updates in terms of new features. Sources close to Windows Phone Central have revealed that notification-syncing between Windows and Windows Phone is one of the goals of the project.

According to Paul Thurrott, we'll see Threshold released in the spring of 2015. But before we see Threshold, Microsoft is rumored to release Update 2 for Windows 8.1 in August. We're not sure how Microsoft will name the next major updates under Threshold, once made available to the general public e.g. 'Windows 8.2', 'Windows 9' or something else altogether.

We've opted to not include links to said profiles, but it's clear to see mentions of Threshold in the above image above from LinkedIn. What would you all like to see in the distant future for both Windows and Windows Phone?
