Microsoft's Timeline feature is set to be one of the biggest coming in the Windows 10 Redstone 4 update, but it looks like the Windows 10 Photos app may be getting a timeline of its own – albeit much more limited. Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia has gotten an early look at some features it says are headed to the Windows 10 Photos app, and chief among them is a timeline feature that lets you quickly scroll through your photos in chronological order.
Currently, Photos already allows you to navigate your photos in chronological order with batches separated by month. The new "timeline" UI element looks as though it will enhance the experience a bit, allowing you to quickly zip to a specific month or year with a scrollbar. It's a small addition, but it could make zoning in on a specific time period a little simpler.
According to Aggiornamenti Lumia, some smaller features are on their way to the Photos app as well. Microsoft appears to be testing a way to add audio commentary to your own video creations as part of a new "Audio" section. Paint 3D integration is also coming, courtesy of a built-in shortcut to export creation directly to the 3D editing app.
We'll have to wait to hear more from Microsoft, but these features could make their way to Insiders soon.
