The Windows Central Podcast is your weekly dose of everything Microsoft, from Windows 10 to Surface, Xbox, HoloLens and everything in between!

It's official: Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming August 2nd. This means that all 350 million Windows 10 users will have access to new features, and Insiders will be pushed to the RS2 builds. In this episode, Daniel, Daniel, and special guest, Zac Bowden, discuss what that means for current Windows 10 users.

They also talk about double-tap-to-wake coming to the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, and how the Anniversary Update is setting the stage for a big comeback for Windows 10 Mobile in 2017 alongside a so-called Surface Phone.

Speaking of Surface, there's a new rumor that Microsoft will be releasing a Surface-branded AIO (all-in-one) PC for the living room to take on the iMac.
