Windows 10 Case Creators Update without Timeline function
It would not be the first time that Microsoft is not able to complete a announced feature for Windows 10 in the targeted timeframe, but the Timeline feature is all the more tragic. On Twitter, Joe Belfiore, who recently returned to Microsoft, has confirmed a report from The Verge that the Timeline feature will not be part of the upcoming update:
This is, of course, particularly bitter, because Microsoft has finally launched a regular charm offensive in the direction of iOS and Android. With Timeline it would not only be possible to work on any Windows 10 PC, tablet or smartphone at the same place where you last stopped, but also on an Android smartphone or the iPhone. A prerequisite for this is of course a Microsoft account and the connection to Cortana, which would provide the data and information via the cloud.
It remains unclear whether the omission of the Timeline function also has a negative impact on further co-op functions such as “Pick Up Where You Left Off” and “Clipboard” . After all, these two points are closely linked to or based on Timeline. Just hope that not more features of the “Fall Creators Update” will be coined. The new version will be released in September as a second major update this year.
