Universal wireless docking and WiFi 802.11ad support coming to Windows 10
PC, tablets and phones will support Universal docking
Microsoft is currently finalizing the big update for Windows 10 – the Creators Update. The software refresh will be coming in April this year, but those in the Insider program will be able to test the new features from January. We already informed you about some changes planned for Windows Creators Update – including a Blue Light Reduction filter, new Share UI, and more.
Today, we learn from Microsoft’s slides shown in December, that Windows 10 will soon support the new protocol for Wi-Fi – 802.11ad. It would allow users to reach higher Internet speeds – up to 8 Gbps.
In addition to the new protocol, Microsoft is also working on a feature called Universal wireless Docking. Working over both Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 802.11ad, the universal docking will allow you to connect any Windows device wirelessly to any dock.
Microsoft expects that hardware makers will soon start producing devices with wireless modems supporting the Wi-Fi 802.11ad standard.
