The wait is finally over. Software giant Microsoft today announced the release date of its much-talked Windows 10. In a blog post, the company announced that 1.5 billion users of 190 countries worldwide using Windows 7 and 8 would be able to update its operating system from June 29.
At the Microsoft Build developer conference, the company announced this would be the last version of Windows- in the future, and there would be no windows version but rather a “Windows Future Service” version. As the new windows are to be released at the end of the month, let’s find out what you will get in Windows 10.

Yes, you’ve rightly heard. It is no longer a sole feature for Windows 8 phones. In Windows 10, users will see the spread of Cortana, the personal assistant which is controlled by voice command. Two other big phone operating systems offer voice commands. Apple has Siri, and Google provides its impersonal and nameless search box, Google Now.
Microsoft has taken a big step to offer the same service as its competitors for a more personalized experience and help you manage your everyday life. Cortana is much more than a tool that interprets machine language.
Rather, it is a real-time interaction to provide you with relevant recommendations about your interest, movies, and places, provide fast pace information, or keep you up-to-date with important reminders. This new feature not only works just on your PC, but you can use it on your smartphone too.
At the Build Developer conference held last month, Microsoft broke all speculation when it revealed its secret Spartan Project, the new and improved default browser for Windows 10: Microsoft Edge. Edge is beautifully designed to give users a better web experience in new ways where you can search your preferable things through typing or by voice command using Cortana.
With built-in features, you can share your comments and witness a faster and easier web experience with a reading view. With a smart interface, get the results that you are looking for in the content that matters to you.
Office on Windows
In the new Windows 10, you will get Office 2016 full-featured desktop suite and experience new universal Windows applications for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, all available separately. Earlier Microsoft announced its web integration with DropBox, where users have an option to save their files in their Dropbox account besides OneDrive.
In the new version, you will have a touch experience, and you can create, edit, and save Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents right from the page without flying to a new page. You will also be able to enjoy new versions of OneNote and Outlook, which are included with Windows 10, at no additional cost.
New Xbox Live and Xbox App
After its launch on June 29, you are going to witness a new gaming experience with New Xbox Live and Xbox App. You can play games on your PC and stream directly from your Xbox One console to your Windows 10 tablets or PCs within your home. The gaming network supports both PC and Tablets- giving you a better experience.
Want to use your phone as a PC- no worries, Windows 10’s inbuilt Windows Continuum lets you do so. With this new feature, you can use your device as 2-in-1, and you can use your tablet as a PC or PC as a Tablet. Just connect Continuum to a monitor, mouse or physical keyboard and make your phone work like a PC.
Say hello to Windows Hello, a tool that greets you by name and with a smile and lets you log into your system without your password in a more secure way. You can authenticate your identity on your face, iris, or finger, providing instant recognition.
Windows Store in Windows 10 is more user-friendly. Browse your favorite applications in the store and install or uninstall them easily with a single tap.
In the future Microsoft, we will continue to update Windows 10 over time with new innovations.
