Microsoft may be getting ready to launch its first big feature update for Windows 10, which has the code name "Redstone", sometime in June. However, according to a new report, a second feature update for the OS has been pushed back from the fall of 2016 to spring of 2017.
According to WinBeta's report:
"This first update is being developed under the tag RS1, and according to my sources will focus mostly on the convergence of different Windows 10 devices such as PC, Xbox and Phone. RS1 will heavily concentrate on the Universal App Platform, bringing the Windows Store to Xbox One and introducing more Project Centennial and Islandwood apps to the Store. There will also be a bigger focus on universal AAA video game titles between Xbox and PC, which is something we have already started seeing as of recently."
The same story also says that the first Redstone update will add deskop SMS texting and cellular calls for people who own a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone that supports Continuum. As far as the second Redstone update, the story states:
"RS2 will likely be used to continue work on features that do not make the cut for RS1, much like how TH2 worked when TH1 was released in July last year. In other words, if any features that I mention or have mentioned in this article are not in RS1, they'll likely land with RS2 alongside other new additions instead. There will also be a bigger focus on first-party apps with RS2, but that's all I know at this point."
The story adds that Windows 10 users will also see smaller improvements in the months ahead, including some refinements for the Start Menu and Settings app, and the Action Center. Keep in mind that Microsoft has not confirmed any of this, and unconfirmed plans are always subject to unconfirmed changes.
