Windows Timeline and Sets are the two features that users are most excited for it to see in the mainstream on Windows 10 PC. Windows Timeline and Sets was announced earlier this year.
Windows Timeline allows Windows 10 users to continue their work across devices including Android and iOS devices with the help of deep integration of Cortana which is available on both Play Store and App Store. Sets is a feature which allows users to pin different apps like apps like Office apps, an UWP app, even Win32 applications and websites under one window like tabs in a web browser.
Windows Timeline was expected to be released to the testers to try out the feature in time for the Fall Creators Update but as confirmed in a tweet by Joe Belfiore, CVP at Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, its release was delayed for after Fall Creators Update. Whereas it was unclear that when Sets would show up or be released.
Well, rejoice users! Today during Windows Insider webcast, Jason Howard, Sr. Program Manager at Microsoft confirmed that users will be able to experience Windows Timeline once RS4 goes mainstream but unfortunately not the Sets feature. It would be unexpected for some as recently a post by Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s EVP of the Windows and Devices Group announced Sets to Insiders. Windows Insiders can instead expect the Sets feature to be alpha or beta tested in future RS4 builds and a stable version can be seen when RS5 goes mainstream.
For now, Windows Insiders can expect to try out the Windows Timeline in upcoming new builds.
