Snapdragon 845 is still not supported by Windows 10 April 2018 Update

Availability will depend on whether you are a consumer user or an organization, whether you have a Visual Studio subscription (formerly known as an MSDN subscription) or volume licensing access, and whether Microsoft actually thinks your PC or organization is ready to receive the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. The most obvious manifestation of that is the new Timeline feature, which is the highlight of the release.

Microsoft has also made several improvements to security in this update. This latest update brings a few new features, including Timeline, Focus Assist, improved Dictation, Nearby Sharing, and some improvements to Cortana and Microsoft Edge. Windows 10 is pretty stable these days, but we're sure there'll be a mess or two to uncover, too.

The Windows 10 April 2018 update is also available from the Visual Studio Subscriptions portal and the Software Download Center via "Update Assistant or Media Creation Tool", according to a Microsoft Tech Community post. For most users it is recommended to wait until Microsoft makes the update available on your device.

Another new tool to be introduced with the latest update is Focus Assist, which is created to help users get things done without distractions like social media or other notifications.

The update was initially referred to as the "Windows 10 Spring Creators Update". While Microsoft is replacing more and more old Win32 parts of the operating system with new, modern Fluent Design counterparts, Explorer is the one big holdout that's still fully Win32, looking horribly out of place among all the fast, new, and responsive Fluent Design parts of the operating system. Microsoft says, "Timeline can help you get back this wasted time", spent on trying to locate documents or photos.




What's different here, is that once the Focus Assist period expires, you are provided with a handy summary of the notifications (emails or updates) from the apps installed on your Windows system.

It is worth noting that if you do install the new update ahead of schedule you could be leaving yourself open to early bugs and glitches.

Tap your Windows button, tap Settings, tap Update & Security, tap Windows Update.

Microsoft Edge tabs can now be muted (hooray!) Edge performance has also been tweaked and updated. As it always does though, the company published a list of features that are being removed in the update, as well as those that are being deprecated, meaning that they're no longer supported and will be removed in a future release. Microsoft is yet to update the download page, so check the same after some time.

With your cursor in any text field either in Windows 10 or in an app, simply press Win + H and start talking.
