Story Remix update adds its most iconic feature

Microsoft has today updated the Microsoft Photos app for Windows 10 Insiders on the Skip Ahead Fast Ring.

The update adds a feature which was a large part of the promise of the Story Remix app and the origin of the name of the feature.

Version 2017.39081.15820.0 of the app introduces themes for the Story Remix feature, allowing users to specify if their video should be Classic, Relaxing or Electric.

This allows users to remix their automatically generated video to suit their taste without having to do much manual editing.

Microsoft is betting that while Windows users are still interested in generating video on their PCs they would prefer to have much of the work taken off their hands by advances in machine learning, only specifying broad themes and leaving much of the decisions to AI.

At this stage, it is not 100% clear if these features will make it to the Fall Creators Update, but they should arrive certainly by next year’s Spring update.
