Windows 8.1 will be launching soon on October 17th. The update will be distributed for free to current Windows 8 users. Although Windows 8.1 has achieved Released to Manufacturing status, Microsoft has plans to integrate more features after its launch. The company has provided a few more details about what’s to come for Windows 8.1.
The Verge reports Windows 8.1 will be getting a new feature called “Photo Loop“, which allows users to “rewind” a photo to the perfect shot. Essentially, Windows 8.1 will take a series of shots and will let users scrub through them to pic the best one. The camera will begin taking photos as soon as it’s launched but it won’t be detectable to the user. Unfortunately, the feature will require new camera hardware so existing Windows 8 tablets won’t support Photo Loop.
Bing is also an area of concentration for Microsoft as it integrates more information into its own apps. Bing Food & Drink will offer video content from famous chefs and over 100,000 different dishes. Bing Travel will receive an upgraded data base with information from Trover and Michelin. Bing Sports also gets updated with the Sports Hub, which provides real-time score reports for more than 20 international competitions.
