Microsoft has just revealed the name of the upcoming Windows 10 update: the “Creators Update”. At its Windows 10 event, the software giant is detailing some of the major new features coming to Windows 10 with the Creators Update. If you have been following Windows 10’s development closely, you’re probably aware that the Creators Update is codenamed “Redstone 2”.

At the moment, there aren’t many details on what the Creators Update will bring to Windows 10. Microsoft is, however, expected to bring the Windows Holographic Shell to Windows 10 next year — which could possibly be part of the Creators Update. With the Windows Holographic Shell, virtual reality headset owners will be able to experience and use Windows 10 in a holographic environment — just like the Microsoft HoloLens.

The Windows 10 Creators Update is also expected to bring some neat features such as Blue Right Reduction, which is similar to Night Mode that’s found on some smartphones. Blue Light Reduction apparently helps users to sleep better, and users who use Flux should already know that it is quite effective.

On the Mobile side of things, the Windows 10 Creators Update will bring a host of new features to Continuum for phones — adding features such as multi-window support, a better desktop experience, and much more.

Windows 10 Creators Update will be available in early 2017.
