Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Bringing New Andromeda Experience for its Windows 10 Devices

The feature is now rolling out in preview to Windows Insiders on the fast ring.

Microsoft could officially reveal Windows 10 Cloud in April 2017 at an event primarily dedicated to the Windows 10 Creators update.

However, developers still have no guaranteed way to download and test the Creators Update with Microsoft's Xbox Insider program being characterized by an obfuscated ring system whereby users are chosen somewhat arbitrarily for various rings (unlike the Windows Insider program which allows you to choose your own ring).

Kodi is a popular open-source media center app, derived from the old Xbox Media Center, and it's coming back to Xbox in the near future.

And as Petri pointed out, it's likely just a matter of time before hackers "jailbreak" Windows 10 Cloud to run the full version. Of course, given the bug bash, the next build will include tons of fixes and performance improvements. As Twitter user Longhorn has discovered, you can launch a desktop application from the PowerShell utility and bypass the Windows Store limitation.

The advocacy organization Oxfam has also joined ACLU and Commonwealth of MA in a lawsuit against the executive order. On Sunday, Healey was one of 17 Democratic attorneys general who signed a letter vowing to "fight" Trump's order.

For now, the slider feature doesn't actually change a device's settings; it's appearing in this build simply to generate feedback from users, she noted. This means that it will once again be available on Xbox, or more specifically, the Xbox One. Last week, a low end Windows 10 SKU leaked (emphasized to ensure that the reader understands that it's not even an officially announced or confirmed product yet). Also, the dialog box states that "this version [Windows 10 Cloud] was made to help protect you and your device by exclusively running Windows Store apps".

This preview build also expands the list of titles with which the Windows Game Bar is compatible.

Will this feature make a difference to your Windows 10 experience?

"To little surprise, the OS looks identical to Windows 10", Sams said.
