Windows 10’s new Timeline feature won’t be in the Fall Creators Update
Microsoft delays the Timeline for 2018
During its BUILD conference in May, Microsoft demonstrated the key features planned for the Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update in 2017. Among them was a feature called ‘Timeline’. It’s an evolution of the Task View, showing an overview of the apps running across different machines, including iOS and Android, and allowing users to easily move between one device to another and pick where they left off.
But as usual, not all new features promised by Microsoft will be delivered in time. Just like the People Bar not making the cut for the first Creators Update, the Timeline feature won’t be ready for the late 2017 update.
Joe Belfiore, who recently re-joined Microsoft after one year holiday, confirmed on Twitter that the Timeline feature won’t be in the Fall Creators Update.
He also mentioned that Microsoft is planning to introduce the Timeline to Windows Insiders in the first test builds of Windows 10 shortly after the Fall Creators update is out in late 2017.
The company is now in the final stages of finalizing FCU, with many improvements and fixes rolling out to Insider Fast.
Correct. Timeline won't be in the Fall Creators Update. We're planning for it to be in early insider builds shortly after FCU is out.
