Microsoft talks about the new APIs for developers in Surface Dial and Windows 10 Creators Update (video)

The Windows 10 Creators Update brings some new features such as the new My People contact bar and the new Surface Dial which gives developers new options to reach users.

In the video above we have Kevin Gallo, Corporate Vice President of Windows Developer  explain what is new in the coming OS update, and also explain how developers can take advantage of the new hardware and software available to them.

The video discusses:

  • 3D in Windows 10 along with the first VR headsets capable of mixed reality through the Windows 10 Creators update.
  • Ability to put the people you care about most at the center of your experience—right where they belong—with Windows MyPeople
  • Surface Dial, a new input peripheral designed for the creative process that integrates with Windows and is complimentary to other input devices like pen. It gives developers the ability to create unique multi-modal experiences that can be customized based on context. The APIs work in both Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and Win32 apps.

The platform is not quite ready yet, but Insider developers can already get started with some new features. Read more about that at Microsoft here.
