  • Windows 10 gets Power Throttling for battery savings

The company is looking at a September release window but it is worth pointing out that they traditionally release the month after the code is completed.

Microsoft said on Thursday that it will update Windows with big feature releases twice a year, each September and March.

Microsoft just released a major Windows 10 update, but the company is still hard at work on even more upgrades.

These changes reflect our commitment to help make it easier to deploy and service Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus.

Microsoft believes that setting a particular schedule for the updates' release would give more convenience to the users.

Power Throttling will be rolled out as part of the Redstone update which is due later this year, although it can be tested now by users who are signed up to the Windows Insider Program.

The technology, temporarily tagged as "Power Throttling", was enabled on all copies of Windows 10 Insider build 16176, which Microsoft released Friday.

The company said the update also allows users to broadcast their gameplay on Windows 10 and Xbox One via a built-in broadcasting technology.

Microsoft plans to improve your laptop's battery life by throttling background apps. For Microsoft, though, this could mean less auspicious feature bundles, a la the Creators Update, which didn't quite pan out as promised.

Microsoft yesterday touted operating system-wide power savings in a recent preview of Windows 10, claiming that the technology will reduce notebook battery consumption by 11% on laptops equipped with the newest processors.

From October 13, 2020, Office 365 ProPlus or Office perpetual in mainstream support will be required to connect to Office 365 services. Now, after the latest announcement, we could look forward to bi-annual major updates for Windows 10 PCs around the world.
