Microsoft is located on the threshold of the largest change in Windows taskbar in recent years. The new taskbar widget, offering fast and easy access to news and weather, will be available from today. He will offer an expanded tape divided into such categories as news, stocks, sports and weather.
Mini-tape news will appear only when pressed on the widget. It can be fully personalized by choosing the location of the items and noting those category of news that are most interesting to the user. Microsoft uses its Microsoft News network to display content with more than 4500 sources. The widget will use artificial intelligence to determine which news is more interested in the user.
If desired, a new widget can be easily disabled or left on it only weather information displayed in the compact block on the taskbar.
The widget will begin to distribute among those users who set the preliminary version of Windows 10’s cumulative update for April 2021. For a wider range of users, the widget will be available in a couple of weeks when the Major security update will begin to deploy.
Microsoft tests this widget from January. It’s amazing that he appeared before the launch of major updates 21H1 and 21H2 scheduled for this year. Microsoft is at the final testing stage of Windows 10 21H1, which is expected to be launched in MAE. However, the new taskbar widget will be available to users of all versions of Windows 10, starting from 1909.
