You can now play with Windows 10's impressive Story Remix video editor

Windows users can expect what Microsoft promises will be "the complete" iTunes experience, including Apple Music and the iTunes Store, as well as support for iPhone and other Apple devices. Part of what it's calling a Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the changes are expected later.

Microsoft recently announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. "Pick Up Where You Left" will allow users to continue to work on a number of different devices. While Microsft didn't demonstrate how'd the new fluent design would look on Project Scorpio, we can assume Microsoft will use the design across all their platforms.

From Windows 10 to Cortana and bots, here's a quick recap of everything announced at Build 2017. For example, the depth effect, similar to bokeh in photography, lets you focus on the task at hand. Myerson says it is like having your PC and your phone finish each other's sentences.

One announcement that is sure to pique tech geeks' interest is Microsoft's update on their latest VR tools. Ahead of the update's release, Microsoft is offering developers the chance to pre-order the Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition, to be delivered this summer, from either Acer ($299) or HP ($329). At the Build 2017, the company showed off its own set of motion controllers for the upcoming Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

"The motion controllers offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in your headset".

Story Remix looks to be an advanced version of the discontinued app, and lands somewhere in the realm of Apple's new Clips app and Google's Photo Assistant, but with a greater range of editing tools.

"Fluent Design enables the creation of more expressive and engaging experiences that work continuously across devices-from large screens, to small screens, to no screen-all in a way that will drive higher engagement and love for your apps", Kevin Gallo, Corporate Vice President of Windows Developer, Microsoft wrote in a blog post. Cortana has been most prominent on Windows 10 - and Microsoft will doubling down on AI in their operating system.

So Microsoft's annual Build developer conference came and went, and the computing giant unveiled a number of initiatives aimed at the software engineers and web developers of the world.

Microsoft also revealed that Cognitive Services, a conduit for third-parties to access its AI algorithms for "vision, speech, language, and knowledge", was arriving on a bot-to-bot communication platform Interbot, a product from Gupshup.
