Microsoft announces Windows 10, Office 365 October update
Aside from the newest Surface devices that were announced recently, Microsoft also announced the October update for Windows 10 and new features for the Office 365.
The first update is the previously reported feature which brings the Your Phone App in Windows 10, allowing you to view, send, and receive the SMS from your Android, on your computer.
Next on the list is the To-Do Integration with Outlook.com and Skype which enables dragging and dropping tasks in an open slot in a user’s calendar and block time to complete it. For Skype, users can simply select the message and tap “Create task” to open the task pane where they can add, edit, and check off tasks.
Microsoft Launcher will allow parents to view their children’s activities, and location, when it is installed in any of their devices, may it be an Android device, Xbox One, or a Windows 10 PC.
