Maker gets Cortana with Windows 10 IoT Core Creators Update

Microsoft finally reveals exactly what telemetry Windows 10 collects about your PC

Microsoft finally reveals exactly what telemetry Windows 10 collects about your PC

Windows 10 users can get the Creators Update in a few different ways. In fact, this is as close to VR as you can get without actually having to buy a VR or AR device such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or HoloLens.

Of course Microsoft are all cock-a-hoop about the improved privacy in Windows 10. It is available in a single.msi file that can be installed right after the download to make the new templates available.

Setting up Cortana to automatically listen for commands requires users to configure the Pi via software running on a networked Windows 10 PC.

To do so, simply visit Microsoft's "Download Windows 10" page, and hit the "Update now" button.

Additionally, you can click the three dots next to Restore Tabs to either add the tabs to your Edge bookmarks or share them with contacts or compatible apps via the Windows 10 Share interface. This is the final version of Creators Update, and it's supposed to be fairly stable, but that doesn't mean things can't go wrong.

There's a Nintendo Direct for Splatoon 2 and ARMS Happening This Week
The cast includes everything from a young boy in a bright yellow robot suit to a girl with ribbons for arms . These are namely Splatoon 2 and ARMS , both of which are going to be Nintendo Switch exclusives.

Other improvements with Creators Update include support for more Adafruit peripherals that are widely used to make smart devices. Plus, do you really need an excuse to back up vital data?

But, strangely enough, it has decided that Windows users shouldn't be able to access it as well. Livestreamers also get a new toy, thanks to the company's recent Beam acquisition, which Microsoft is hoping will become a strong alternative to Twitch or YouTube Gaming. In addition to the highly anticipated Game Mode, you'll be able to use a new streaming platform, find a new section for game-specific settings, and expanded support for the Game Bar. You can also check out a full rundown of what's new with the Creators Update on Major Nelson's blog.

With the new Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft is making some important changes to the way you set up Windows 10 on your PC. As you can see, developers do not have many options here.

In terms of hardware support, you can now run Cortana on Raspberry Pi 3 and 2, DragonBoard 410C, MinnowBoard MAX and a number of reference development kits from Intel and Qualcomm.
