Windows 10’s schedule feature disappears
Windows 10 is officially losing One time ambitious schedule featureMicrosoft announced today. Timeline, which was first launched in 2017, is designed to make it easy for users to switch between multiple devices – to seamlessly switch from a Windows 10 PC to an Android or iOS phone and back.
Not surprisingly, the schedule has become obsolete: It was a feature that relied heavily on Microsoft’s Cortana Assistant, which would have users resume tasks from device to device. Cortana was a particularly important part of building the timeline experience on iOS and Android devices, where (of course) Microsoft had less control.
The news was announced as part of Preview of Windows 10 Insider Build 21359:
If your activity history is synced between your devices through your Microsoft account (MSA), you will no longer be able to upload new activity to the timeline. Accounts connected to AAD will not be affected. To view site history, Edge and other browsers have the option to look at recent web activity. You can also view recently used files with OneDrive and Office.
Insider build users should already see the changes after installing the new update, while regular feed users should see the timeline removed in the coming weeks.
