The headlining features: The ability for Android phone owners to send and receive texts straight from their PC.

However, if you want to get the October 2018 Update right now, all you have to do is go to Windows Update and click Check for Updates.

If you opt to wait for the update to hit your PC, Microsoft will download the update to your device and notify you it's ready to be installed.

Well, in the recent Surface event that was held by Microsoft, the company introduced a new app that will allow Android users to mirror any app to the Windows 10 computer. It says that this will mean that your PC will prompt you to complete the update that it downloads in the coming weeks. Rather than Nvidia's proprietary RTX ray tracing technology, DXR is a universal standard for anyone using Windows 10. Unfortunately, the known issue also exists in the public version of Windows 10 October 2018 Update as the Task Manager is reporting inaccurate CPU usage. Microsoft Edge has also been updated, the Windows 10 Game Bar and Cortana have both received some code love.

Since before abandoning its Windows Phone/Mobile platform earlier in the year, Microsoft has been eyeing Android as a spiritual replacement, with most core Windows functionality transferred into Android apps. Larger Windows updates seem to have settled into a bi-annual rhythm.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has also provided details on how to get the Windows 10 October 2018 Update in another blog post.

DirectX Raytracing will also make it possible for graphics cards other than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 to perform ray tracing, should AMD ever decide to introduce any.

Microsoft intends to kill off the Snipping Tool screen capture program, replacing it with Snip & Sketch that is better integrated with Windows. In particular it states that the time your device is offline during updates will be reduced "by up to 31 per cent compared to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update". Available in preview on Android with the Microsoft Launcher now.

As we've already reported, the first games that will support DXR are Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus, with more games to come in the near future. You're now able to use it with a digital pen thanks to the latest update.
