Microsoft just announced its next major update for the Windows 10 operating system will be made available in early 2017. Called the Creators Update, the update is bound for all devices running Windows 10 and will be free, according to Microsoft’s Terry Myerson.
As part of the Windows 10 Creators Update, the tech giant will launch a major revamp of its classic Paint app with a focus on 3D creativity. The new tool called Paint 3D will offer users three-dimensional painting, which is also expected to appeal to the Minecraft generation. So, it comes as no surprise that Paint 3D will integrate Minecraft. This means Minecraft players will greatly benefit from this. Players will be allowed to export their in-game creations to Paint 3D and then use a 3D printer in order to turn them into real objects.
Not stopping there, the software company aims to add its 3D creation to its famous Powerpoint presentation software and other products, inclusive of HoloLens, and a new line of virtual reality headsets starting at $299 from vendors, namely Asus, Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo. Indeed, Terry Myerson said the update was tailored for gamers who have been growing interest in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences.
The improved sharing and communication is also part of the Windows 10 Creators Update. The update will add icons of the people you most often have conversations throughout Windows 10 and in the taskbar, which makes it much easier for you to look for something you sent without opening tons of apps. You simply select one of your contacts in your taskbar, and you will be then presented with the conversations you have with that one in email, Skype and other apps.
