  • Joe Belfiore corporate vice president of Windows 10 at Microsoft

Microsoft also announced today a new feature called Your Phone, that's created to show you the most important information about your phone directly on your PC so that you don't have to switch between your Windows 10 PC and smartphone when working on an essay or document. "Using our new SDK, Windows developers will soon be able to employ drones, AI and machine learning technologies to create intelligent flying robots that will save businesses time and money, and help make drone technology a mainstay in the workplace".

Meanwhile, Microsoft's Custom Vision service - which enables devices to recognise content in imagery - will now run on Azure IoT Edge.

Microsoft plans to share more details on 365 during tomorrow's Build festivities.

Microsoft says it has a new Kinect device in the works, with some new sensors and plenty of computing power on board.

Microsoft says it's used some of the advances made through HoloLens - which in turn, was informed by the original Kinect - to enhance Project Kinect's spatial understanding, object recognition, skeletal tracking, and more. The move represents the first Azure Cognitive Service to be extended to the edge with support for more services coming "over the next several months", Microsoft said. Microsoft's translation tool also offers real-time captioning of conversations.


This year's Build 2018 introduces lots of new Azure and AI products that are aimed at edge devices and developers that build for edge computing. Mashable's Raymond Wong will be sharing live updates before and during the event. One notable update is that the company is patterning up with GitHub, to help developers automate their DevOps processes from right within the service without ever leaving GitHub.

Microsoft at its Build 2018 developer conference announced new features that makes the entire Windows experience more mobile-friendly.

The Microsoft Launcher app on Android will support enterprise customers including line-of-business app discovery and IT advisement on configuration.

Microsoft is enabling any developer to reach and engage new audiences with Sets, an easier way to organize your information and get back to what you were doing.
