The new Paint 3D app allows you to create or modify 3D objects, easily change color or texture, or turn 2D images into 3D works of art.
Built-in game streaming with Beam lets you stream your gameplay on Windows 10. Pressing Windows key + G while playing your game will bring up the Game bar, where you’ll find we’ve added a broadcast icon to launch Beam without any extra software.
Game Mode dedicates more system resources to games you play and also works for both Win32 and UWP games. To enable Game Mode while playing a game, pull up the Game bar (Windows key + G) and click on the Settings button to opt the running game into using Game Mode.
With Creators Update, Microsoft Edge promises faster performance and longer battery compared to Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
It also brings Dolby Atmos audio experience via the Dolby Access app that lets you experience immersive audio from a Windows 10 PC running the Creators Update via headphones or an HDMI connection to a Dolby Atmos-enabled sound bar or home theater system. Night light lets you lower the amount of blue light emitted from your PC at night.
Skype for Windows 10 in the Creators update brings Mini view, Messaging, Improved group video call, and more.
