Microsoft has started testing an update for Windows 10 that it plans to release in 2020. It wasn’t expected that Microsoft would be testing this update right now as it is known for testing them at a later period. This news has been confirmed by Dona Sarkar, an insider at Microsoft’s Windows who said that additional testing is required for this new 2020 update. The tech giant hasn’t yet started testing its next 2019 update which is codenamed 19H2. The update which is codenamed 20H1 belongs to the 2020 update. Microsoft confirmed that it is being worked on.
Microsoft hasn’t yet revealed the features of this update. However, it has released the first beta build for testers. Windows 10 build 18836 has been released and testers who opt for it can Skip Ahead in the ring and get future version of Microsoft Windows. The testing of the 19H2 will reportedly start later this spring, which is right ahead of us. The testing of another update, codenamed as 19H1 is going to start in the month of April. The Spring 2019 update includes a new light theme, Kaomoji support, a separation of Cortana from Windows search and a new built-in Office app.
Microsoft had also announced the new light theme to the Windows 10 last year during November. Under this feature, there will be a white-theme system-wide, that will allow all of the UI to appear in the colour white. Also, Microsoft would be tweaking the default wallpaper of Windows 10 in order to compliment the new light theme. According to Microsoft, this will better fit the new theme. The new light theme in the 19H1 is also going to include a new snipping tool, updates to the printing app and intelligent hours for Windows Update so it doesn’t randomly reboot your device.
To talk of the Kaomoji support, it is going to include face characters that are accessible through the same existing emoji shortcut (win+period). This feature will help you quickly access the emoji dash and other symbols thus, adding to your convenience while typing.
