Microsoft has changed its priorities on Windows 10X because of the current COVID19 pandemic. Today, the Redmond giant has announced that they are shifting their focus on Windows 10X for single-screen devices instead of dual screens. Company’s Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, has published a blog post on this.
In the blog, he mentioned about the Windows 10 May 2020 Update release but didn’t detail any release date for that and how it’s shifting of Windows 10X for foldable devices to traditional PCs. He also mentioned about the Build 2020 invitation, which will be held digitally on May 19-21.
Windows 10X for single-screen devices Panay wrote:
With Windows 10X, we designed for flexibility, and that flexibility has enabled us to pivot our focus toward single-screen Windows 10X devices that leverage the power of the cloud to help our customers work, learn and play in new ways. These single-screen devices will be the first expression of Windows 10X that we deliver to our customers, and we will continue to look for the right moment, in conjunction with our OEM partners, to bring dual-screen devices to market.
Moreover, the company is accelerating the innovation in Windows 10 by making improvements so that users can work, learn, and play in the best way. Thus, this suggests that the company has big plans for Windows 10 features, and 20H2 could be a bigger update than the 19H2 (November 2019 Update).
However, in the blog, there are no details on testing Windows 10X for single-screen devices though earlier this year, Microsoft shipped Windows 10X emulator. You can check the original blog post here.
