At the Windows Developer Day today, Microsoft showed off a working version of the upcoming Windows Timeline experience in Windows 10. The feature was initially expected to arrive with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, but it wasn’t ready in time for the public release of the update.
Windows Timeline is now set to arrive with the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 4 update, which is expected to be released in early 2018 — around March or April. Microsoft’s Kevin Gallo showed off Timeline running on Windows 10 Redstone 4 build 17005. Gallo also announced that the feature will be available to Windows Insiders sometime soon.
Here are a few screenshots:
Windows Timeline doesn’t look a lot different from some of the concepts Microsoft showed off earlier this year. As it can be seen from the screenshots, Timeline will be accessible from Windows 10’s Task View button. You will also be able to use the Virtual Desktops feature in Windows 10 from there. There’s a search button which you can use to search all of your activities and apps from the past.
Now that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has RTM’d, Microsoft will be primarily focusing on Redstone 4 — so it shouldn’t be too long before Windows Insiders can try the feature out.
