In particular, the roadmap points towards a feature that will let Windows Phone and Android users unlock their Windows 10 devices. We should expect that our favorite OS (Windows, obviously!) will become more efficient and powerful in forthcoming time.

Xbox team member Mike Ybarra confirmed via Twitter that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update announced at Build 2016 comes with key gaming features and that the next Xbox system update will go to preview in late May or early June.

Other impending features, like Microsoft Edge extensions, touchscreen support, casting of phone screens onto PCs (or PC to PC), and more, can be viewed on Microsoft's roadmap webpage. It will also protect enterprise apps and data against accidental data leak on enterprise-owned devices or personal devices that employees bring to work.

Microsoft is working on updates to the Continuum feature that adapts the user experience to the type of peripherals connected, such as enabling a Continuum-compatible phone to display via a monitor connected to a Windows 10 PC.

Though Microsoft originally had hoped to make EDP part of the RTM version of Windows 10 last July, and later, part of the November 2015 update to Windows 10, but that didn't end up happening.

Majority of these features are business focused, which promise a way to bolster cross-platform connectivity, with the objective to improve productivity, in turn.
