    As planned, Samsung is going to make its Flow Android app compatible with any Windows 10 PC. At first, Samsung introduced a Samsung Flow App for Android last year to unlock its Windows 10-powered Galaxy TabPro S, and users can use the fingerprint reader on a compatible Galaxy smartphone to directly unlock the Windows 10 tablet.

    At the moment, Samsung Flow allows Galaxy Tab Pro S users to unlock their tablet with a compatible Galaxy smartphone’s fingerprint scanner. Here are the supported smartphones confirmed by Samsung: Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016).

    The good news is Samsung plans to add support for all Windows 10 PCs, which will enable users to unlock their devices with any of the compatible Galaxy smartphones listed above.

    The Korean company is planning to enable the feature With the Windows 10 Creators Update while Microsoft hasn’t officially announced a release date for the Creators Update. However, the Update is expected to arrive in April. Samsung was already using Microsoft’s Windows Hello Companion Device Framework to enable its fingerprint unlock, and it appears the company is simply expanding on that with the latest update to Windows 10.

  • Microsoft Rolled Out Its Windows 10 Anniversary Update for PC

    Microsoft has already suspended the free Windows 10 update service on July 29th, 2016 worldwide, but on August 2nd, 2016, Microsoft rolled out its Windows 10 Anniversary Update as expected. It is a surprise that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (AU) does not include Windows phones on the approved list. We found the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to be a positive step forward for users, with substantial updates to features you use the most. Since the AU is a standard update, you really don’t have to do anything to receive it: It will be downloaded and installed automatically.

    This time, however, Microsoft’s offering a bit more clarity about who’s getting the Anniversary Update first. Traditionally, Microsoft has simply said that updates will be rolled out in phases. On August 2, however, Microsoft said in a blog post that the “Windows 10 Anniversary Update is being rolled out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases starting with the newer machines first.” It means that if you have a shiny new PC, you’re the first to experience the update.

    It’s no surprise that the Anniversary Update is rolling out; Microsoft’s been saying that for weeks. What is disappointing, though, is that Windows phones are lagging behind. We all know that they’re on life support, but this only adds to the general ennui surrounding Windows 10 Mobile.

    How to get the Anniversary Update?

    If you don’t want to wait for the update—say, for instance, you have an older PC—AU is still easy to obtain. Just go to your Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update menu and click Check for Updates. The Anniversary Update will appear as “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607.” Remember to check back and install it after it downloads, or else it will typically install sometime in the evening, when you’re not using your PC. (If you’re not planning on downloading it immediately, remember that the AU download could really happen at almost any time. When you’re done for the night, save your work, and make sure you’re not in the middle of filling out any web forms, where data won’t be saved in the event of an unexpected reboot.)

    Even better, if you click on the Learn More link just below the update button, you’ll be taken to a support page where you can download the ISO file. That’s handy if you want to perform a clean install from a USB stick onto multiple PCs.

    Windows 10 Mobile phones will have to wait:

    Unfortunately, if you’re a Windows 10 Mobile phone owner, you’re going to have to wait. Microsoft said that the AU will begin rolling out to phones “in the coming weeks.” Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t shared how long that will be, or the reason for the delay.

    Right now, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is rolling out to PCs. The Summer Update, or the August Update, or the Anniversary Update, is being deployed to the Xbox One and soon the Xbox One S. As for Windows 10 Mobile? Well, it’ll happen eventually.
