If you want to see the brand new Xbox app for Windows 10 but haven't got it installed yet, fear not! Xbox's Larry Hyrb, Major Nelson to you and I, has posted a video tour of the new app with Richard Irving from the engineering team. It's the first time we've had the pleasure of a dedicated Xbox gaming app on Windows – not counting Smartglass, of course – and is something we're really excited to put through its paces.

While there's still a ton of work to be done, there's a lot of good stuff in this early build. Here's what we've got.

It would be underselling it a great deal if we didn't say that Microsoft HoloLens was one of the most surprising, stand out points of the Windows 10 event. After all, this isn't just Windows 10, it's Windows 10 on your head! It's an exciting new frontier for Microsoft and personal computing in general and we want you to come and join the discussion in the Windows Central HoloLens forums!

Riptide GP2 never looked better than on Xbox One

Riptide GP2 launches on Xbox One on January 23 and to wet our appetites there's a new trailer showing off all the 1080p, 60fps jet ski racing goodness we'll soon be enjoying. Vector Unit's water racer has always looked fantastic on mobile, whichever platform it's been on, but with the step up to the Xbox One it's never looked better.

We're looking forward to playing this. Not long left to wait.

Besides Windows 10 the platform, we're learning a lot more about the new apps that we're going to be getting with it, like touch-friendly Office. Today, Microsoft has elaborated a little more on the new version for Windows 10 and confirmed that it will be installed for free on all Windows 10 phones and "small tablets." This is particularly good news considering it's been the small tablets that have been getting free Office 365 subscriptions, but have screens too small to really put the software to work.

We were hoping to be wowed by Microsoft's Windows 10 event yesterday, and it didn't disappoint. Desktop, tablet, phone, Xbox, your head, all got a look in and a demonstration of how things will be with the launch of Windows 10.

Now that the dust has settled a little and we've had time to step back and take stock, we want to know what you thought was the best thing shown off.

What did we learn about Windows 10 from Microsoft's latest event? A whole lot, as it happens

The dust has settled but the excitement hasn't died down – and probably won't for a long time to come. Microsoft has delivered its "Windows 10: The next chapter" event out at its campus in Redmond and it didn't disappoint. Going into it we had only ideas at what we might see, but there were a whole lot of things that we weren't ready for.

There was a lot to take in during the presentation, but already there are some parts of it that stand above the others. We learned a lot about Windows 10 the platform, the future, and even saw some hot new hardware.

So, here's 10 things we learned about the next chapter of Windows 10.

The Windows Insider program has been pushing out Windows 10 Technical Previews since the latest version of Microsoft's OS was first announced. After today's event up in Redmond, there's no doubts a lot more people who are excited to try out those shiny new builds – including for phones – for themselves. A lot of great announcements came our way, so if you're not already a Windows Insider, now is probably a good time to get in on it.

While Windows 10 in its phone form only got a partial look – expect to see more at MWC at the beginning of March – ahead of the highly anticipated preview builds pushing out, we did at least get a little snippet of information many Windows Phone users have been wanting to hear. Microsoft is committed to building a Windows 10 flagship smartphone later this year.

In case you'd forgotten, later today we'll be live from the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA, for the Windows 10: The next chapter event. It's fair to say excitement has reached pretty incredible levels and in just a few short hours we'll have all we need to know.

So, today's the day. It's been a long time coming for a lot of people, but at 9 a.m. PT Microsoft will kick off proceedings and start talking about what's next for Windows 10. That could mean desktop, it could mean phones, it could mean tablets, Xbox, Windows gaming, literally anything.

Solid leaks have been minimal and Windows 10 has been one of the tech industry's better guarded secrets of recent times. And we like that, there are too many events where we're already too 'in-the-know' about what's going to happen before it happens. Today has the chance to blow our minds completely. So, what do you want to see the most?

While a little late for Christmas miracles, we'll take it when it comes when it concerns Twitter for Windows Phone updates. That's what's happening today and it's actually a pretty useful update, too. Despite no new changelog in the Windows Phone Store, it looks like the headline new features are People Hub integration, sharing support for web links from Internet Explorer and some nifty new Cortana support for tweeting without the typing.

Recently we passed on some of our own thoughts on how it's been living with the Microsoft Band, and a couple of things we'd like to see happen with a successor. It's a great device, for sure, but by no means perfect, and we've all got our own opinions on what we'd do differently for the next one. So, now, we're turning it over to you. What do you want to see most from the next Microsoft Band?
