Windows 10 October 2018 Update released

Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system is now running on more than 700 million devices, this year’s second major Windows 10 update is now out.

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update is from today available when you manually check for new updates. Microsoft will start automatically pushing the update to existing machines next week from October 9th.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update includes a number of new features. Perhaps the largest change is a new cloud-powered clipboard that will allow Windows 10 users to copy content across machines, and store a history of copied content in the cloud. It is particularly useful if you use a desktop PC at home or work, and then a laptop on the go.

Microsoft is also releasing its “Your Phone” app with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. It’s designed as a companion app to more closely align Android and iOS to Windows 10. Most of the features are Android-only right now, though. You will be able to quickly sync photos taken on an Android device, or send and receive text messages with Windows 10 connecting to your Android phone.

Now that Windows 10 October 2018 Update is rolling out, work at Microsoft will now shift towards the next major release. Codenamed 19H1, the update will launch in March 2019.
