Spotify and Other Features Coming to Windows 10 Game Bar

Windows 10 Game Bar beta adds Spotify customization and more

MicrosoftWhen can you try the Windows 10 May 2019 Update?

Updates may also be paused for up to 35 days (seven days at a time) for all users, including those on Windows 10 Home.

Let's be clear though - the nagging will continue, but there'll be less, and the control element is most definitely yours. "We will provide notification that an update is available and recommended based on our data, but it will be largely up to the user to initiate when the update occurs", Microsoft explains in a blog post.

We'll also start to see the migration to the Chromium version of Edge in this build, though it's not clear if there will be a Preview available at launch.

Starting next week, the May 2019 Update will be released to Windows 10 Insiders who are part of the Release Preview Ring.

You can find more details about the new Windows 10 update features here, though we've listed below the key features. The SAC-T descriptor is an important milestone for IT pros using Windows Update for Business to manage Windows 10 updates. That's sort of what it's like running Windows 10, though thankfully, changes are in store.

Extended ability to pause updates for both feature and monthly updates. The first of the new features being tested at the moment is a Spotify widget, which allows players to control their music and podcasts as long as they have the Spotify app installed. The next big update focuses on making gaming more convenient with an improved "Game bar" and more new features integrated.

The "check for updates" option won't check for feature updates anymore so that only monthly quality and security updates are downloaded and installed on Windows 10 devices when the button is used by a system administrator.

When the update officially rolls out worldwide in May, any Windows 10 user can go to Windows Update to check for the update.

Microsoft has been updating its Windows 10 operating system twice a year - once in the spring, and again in the autumn. And that's the problem with Windows 10 and that constant fixing of what was not broken, that actually broke things more.

"We will begin releasing 19H2 bits to Insiders later this spring and will talk more about what that will look like in the near future", Microsoft says. So Microsoft must have some plan for testing it.

It appears Microsoft's push to move users away from Windows 7 is affecting its market share.
