Story Remix will automatically identify the best photos and videos to help people create highlights of their experiences.

Microsoft on Thursday took the wraps off its new Fluent Design System for Windows during day two of the Microsoft Build Conference. It will also enable users to move between various devices - whether its a Windows PC or Android smartphone - and continue to work on files and apps between them.

Fall Creators Update leverages both the new Fluent Design System and the intelligence of the Microsoft Graph, Myerson said, adding that with timeline in Windows 10, one can now jump back in time to find what one was working on. One key addition of the Windows 10 Fall update will allow people to leave what they are doing on one device and pick up where they left off on another be it a Windows, Apple, or Android driven machine. Like Microsoft's previous video editing tool, Story Remix allows users to edit their footage with tools for adding soundtracks, annotations, transitions and special effects, according to The Next Web.

Other features of the update include Story Mix, which is created to make video editing easier. Thus, to actually experience this work on-the-go feature, users will need to have PWILO-enable apps on mobile devices.

A much rumoured refresh to the design of Windows 10 - previously known as "Project Neon" - was also previewed as the company unveiled what it called the Microsoft Fluent Design System.

It is expected that the Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, will arrive in September this year.
