These are the new features coming to Windows 10 Mobile

Lumia 650 Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has been accused by some of neglecting Windows 10 Mobile, but the company has done a half-decent job of issuing a steady stream of updates since launch.

Now, the Redmond company has used its Ignite 2016 conference to detail some more features coming to Windows 10 Mobile, NeoWin reported.

Several features are improvements to Microsoft‘s Continuum experience, such as the ability to put your phone to sleep while using Continuum and Proximity Connect functionality. The latter sees you being able to activate Continuum mode while your phone is stowed away in your bag or pocket.

The new Windows 10 Mobile update will include a ton of Continuum tweaks and additions

NeoWin adds that you can now have separate start screens for your phone and Continuum, which is a long overdue feature by some accounts.

Two other Continuum additions include the presence of a taskbar and the ability to resize app windows.

This so-called Redstone 2 update is only set to arrive in April 2017 though, but Windows Insiders should see it “before too long”.

The update comes amid speculation and rumours that Microsoft could be killing or rebranding its Lumia line in favour of Surface Phones. Either way, expect 2017 to be a bit more exciting for the company on the mobile front.
