Microsoft will likely detail all the features coming to the next-generation Windows update
Next-generation Windows will be launched by Microsoft on 24 June 2021 via a virtual event. At Build 2021, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella had teased the arrival of a significant Windows update that will unlock economic opportunities for developers and creators alike. At this event later this month, Microsoft will likely detail all the features coming to the next-generation Windows update. Past reports claim that this significant update has been codenamed internally as ‘Project Sun Valley’. It is anticipated to bring a UI overhaul and a brand new Windows app store.
Scheduled for June 24 at 11am Eastern Time (8.30pm IST), the Redmond, US-based tech giant has listed a new event on its website. Through the Windows Twitter handle, a tweet has also been posted by Microsoft that says the event will highlight all that’s coming next for the next-generation Windows. There might be a slight change to the Windows logo as well, hints an image attached to the event invite. Users can head over to the event page and schedule a reminder for the Microsoft unveil.
In his keynote speech at Build 2021, Nadella said that next-generation Windows update will be the most significant one of the past decade. “Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows”, said Nadella.
“Our promise to you is this: we will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications”.
Apart from significant UI changes and new monetisation opportunities for developers, other reported features to come with the next-generation Windows include new system icons, the end of Windows 95 icons, and more.
