The Fall Creators Update, Microsoft's next major update for Windows 10 is now in development. Here's everything we know so far.

Updated May 22, 2017: Updated to reflect new announcements from Build.

Microsoft is now hard at work developing the next major update for Windows 10. Dubbed the "Fall Creators Update," it is expected to launch in early Fall 2017 and will focus on a whole bunch of new improvements for Windows 10 users.

Of course, if a feature is coming in the Fall Creators Update, Insiders will likely have the chance to play with it before the official launch in October/November. So, what do we expect to see show up in the Fall Creators Update for PC?

My People

Originally planned for the Creators Update, My People is a new social feature being built into the Fall Creators Update that will allow you to pin your favorite contacts to your taskbar for easy access recent conversations, emails, contact details and more. You'll be able to share files directly to a contact on your taskbar, collaborate in documents and keep in touch no matter where you are in the operating system.

We've already had a chance to go hands-on with the Fall Creators Update My People feature, so make sure you check that out here.

Fluent Design System

We exclusively revealed last year that Microsoft was working on a new design language that would give Windows more flair and fluidity, something that it seemingly lacks currently. Microsoft confirmed at Build 2017 that its new design language, now known as the Fluent Design System, will begin showing up throughout Windows 10 with the Fall Creators Update.

Windows 10 ARM

Microsoft announced last year that Windows 10 would be coming to ARM-based processors, with full Win32 emulation support. We believe Windows 10 on ARM based laptops/tablets will be ready with the Fall Creators Update in, well the fall. It's unlikely that we'll see full Windows 10 running on phones in the fall, however, so don't be holding your breath for that.

Full Windows 10 coming to ARM-based laptops and tablets is significant, mainly because of the Win32 emulation support. Unlike Windows RT, Windows 10 on ARM-powered laptops and tablets will be able to run your normal Win32 programs, meaning it won't be locked to the Windows Store. Microsoft has a separate edition of Windows 10 for that called Windows 10 S.

OneDrive Placeholders

It's a feature that Insiders have been asking for ever since OneDrive placeholders got removed from Windows 10. Microsoft confirmed at Build 2017 that OneDrive Placeholders are returning under a new name; On-Demand Sync and will be better implemented throughout the operating system.

Cloud Clipboard

Microsoft will be introducing a new cloud-enabled clipboard with the Fall Creators Update, that will allow users to copy/paste items across devices thanks to the cloud. Microsoft has been working on a solution like this for some time now, with its original name being called OneClip. It appears with the Fall Creators Update however, this functionality will be baked into the operating system.

Cortana Speaker Devices

Harman/Kardon and many more 3rd party hardware makers will begin launching new Cortana-enabled speakers this fall alongside the Fall Creators Update. Microsoft already demoed how this will work at Build 2017, with a Harman/Kardon speaker powered by Cortana. We've already gone hands-on with the setup process, so work is ongoing for this feature.

Bye Bye HomeGroup

It appears, according to a support page on Microsoft's own website, that HomeGroup will be "sunset" in the next feature update for Windows 10, which just happens to be the Fall Creators Update. HomeGroup provides rudimentary file and printer sharing between home networks.

We're not entirely sure how popular the HomeGroup feature is, which has been in Windows for quite a few years at this point, but beware that it appears it'll be going away soon.

What do you think?

That's our list for what looks to be in the works for Redstone 3. Of course, at any point Microsoft can cancel or delay a feature, so keep that in mind. In the meantime, tell us what you're most hoping for with Redstone 3 in the fall.
