Windows 10 April 2018 Update Rollout Begins

Posted on April 30, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 57 Comments

The next big Windows 10 update is rolling out to the public now. Days after being officially announced, the new Windows 10 April 2018 Update is now available for download, and interested users can now download the new update to get all the latest features of Windows right away.

Windows 10’s April 2018 Update isn’t too much of a large update — in fact, it doesn’t really include any notable features apart from the new Timeline experience. Timeline transforms how Windows 10’s Task View works by keeping track of everything you do or use on your computer, and some of the stuff on your mobile devices. It essentially keeps things in sync between your devices, so you can pick up from where you left off without much effort — as long as your files are stored in the cloud and you rely mostly on the Microsoft ecosystem.

Apart from Timeline, the April 2018 Update isn’t too much of a big deal. It includes a bunch of improvements to Microsoft Edge, Cortana, the Action Center, and that’s really about it. The second Windows 10 update scheduled for later this year is expected to be way more exciting, however.

For now, though — you can manually download the April 2018 Update to Windows 10 here. And if you want to try your luck to see whether the update is available for your PC on Windows Update right now, you can simply go ahead and check for updates there.
