This week we delayed recording the show until after Microsoft’s big Xbox E3 Media Briefing was held yesterday afternoon. So this show has a lot of stuff related to those announcements from Los Angeles, That gets us caught up with the new game pass options for both console and PC, upcoming games, hardware, and streaming technology plus lots of other gaming related items such as project Scarlett and Project xCloud. Of course, I still catch you up on the latest for Windows Insiders and where we stand with the continued development of the 20H1 feature update for next year and the wait for the first bits of 19H2 for this fall. Scattered throughout the show I have some of the details about Apple’s WWDC 2019 announcements, browser updates, and a little low earth orbit news from NASA.
As Microsoft prepares to put on their Xbox E3 Briefing later today on the West Coast, it seems they have opened up access to their new Xbox App and Xbox Game Pass PC subscription. Some of the details leaked earlier this weekend but we now have access and take a walk through the app and subscription.
This week we have our normal collection of updates for Windows Insiders with the latest builds and progress across a couple of development branches for Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge (Chromium). However, I begin with an explanation of the final state of my link curation process to avoid Twitter’s aggressive algorithms plus I get on my soapbox about headlines and misdirection with one privacy related story I read this week. After that it is our normal weekly run down of updates around apps, services, security, hardware, social media, and gaming. At the end of it all I mention a couple of space items that you should be aware of as the next five years are going to be crazy as NASA heads back to the moon! Make sure you listen from start to finish to catch all the headlines.
Welcome to our catch up episode after I spent a week out in Seattle at Microsoft Build. There were a lot of exciting announcements from Microsoft for developers and while some will be experienced by consumers sooner – others will come later in our favorites apps, products, and services. Of course we catch you up with all the other key tidbits including new Windows Insiders builds along with many apps and services updates.
