Windows 10 Creators Update Release is on April 11

Microsoft announced to start rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update on April 11.

The Windows 10 Creators Update will be released for free in two weeks. Windows 10 users can get the update starting April 11. The focus of the new Windows 10 release is on 3D content.

"Today, I’m excited to share our latest update to Windows 10, the Creators Update, will begin to roll out on April 11. The Creators Update is designed to spark and unleash creativity, bringing 3D and mixed reality to everyone and enabling every gamer to be a broadcaster. Beyond creativity, it brings new features to Microsoft Edge, additional security capabilities and privacy tools, and so much more.," said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Devices Group.

The 3D industry is estimated to grow by over 62% by 2020, and Microsoft wants to empower everyone to experience, create and share in 3D with the Creators Update.

With the new Paint 3D app in the Creators Update, it’s simple to create 3D objects from scratch, easily changing colors, stamping textures, or turning a 2D picture into a 3D work of art. Remix3D.com offers pre-made 3D art in a growing online library for your use or you can share your own creation with this creative community.

From 3D to mixed reality, the Windows 10 Creators Update enables immersive experiences that blur the lines between the physical and virtual worlds. Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo will ship the world’s first Windows Mixed Reality-enabled headsets with the Creators Update, starting at affordable $299 USD later this year.

These VR headsets will contain built-in sensors to enable inside-out, six-degrees of freedom, allowing for easy setup and free movement without the need for external markers or sensors in the wall. These devices will light up with new, immersive Windows Mixed Reality apps and experiences, which developers are creating on the recently available Windows Mixed Reality dev kits.

Microsoft also expands the availability of Surface Studio and Surface Book to select countries in Europe and Asia including Germany and Japan. Surface Book with Performance base is available for pre-order today in Austria, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and will be available for purchase on April 20th. And, Surface Studio and Surface Dial are available for pre-order today in Australia, Canada and New Zealand and will be available for purchase starting April 20th.
