Microsoft recently announced the dates for its flagship annual meeting, Microsoft Build 2021. It will be from 25 to 27 May. Due to the global health condition, it will be completely demolished once again.
We do not have an exact schedule at the moment. Apparently Microsoft has not yet shared information on the subject. In parallel, a mini-meeting called “What’s Next” will also be in the program. The idea is to provide an overview of what is planned in different areas.
One of the first events should focus on video games. We do not know what the giant really is. If new hardware as well as official presentations of the games are unlikely, Redmond should focus on improvements around the game. It can worry about the future of video games through software, services and more commonly its Xbox branch.
What’s next, Windows 10 will probably be in the spotlight
A mini “What’s Next” event dedicated to Windows 10 is also being studied. News about it is very busy. Simply follow the publication of several builds through the Windows Insider program. Redmond is preparing many things so that an overview of the main improvements is possible.
By the end of the year the main objective is a 21H2 kickoff scheduled for next fall. This version will introduce many new features after a year of waiting. In fact Windows 10 20H2 and 21H1 are small updates primarily offering “under the hood” customization. Returning to 21H2, significant improvements in terms of both functionality and user interface are expected. The change will affect some essential aspects of the desktop such as the taskbar and the start menu.
