In the operating system Windows 10 will be implemented a new feature that increases the ease of interaction of devices running this OS with other devices. Improvements can find application already in that update of Windows 10, which will be provided to users of the operating system in the spring of 2018. The current year will not be quite ordinary, as the conferences of companies that produce the most popular OS will coincide in time.

Microsoft has begun testing a new, Bluetooth-based feature that will be available to users in the next significant update to the operating system. Windows 10 testers can try faster and more convenient pairing of devices using Bluetooth in the newest build of 17093 operating system Windows 10, released a little earlier and considered in Windows Blogs. Features of the new Bluetooth fast pairing feature were reviewed by Tom Warren (Tom Warren) on the pages of the resource The Verge.

The first device with support for accelerated pairing was the Surface Precision Mouse. Now Windows 10 displays a message about the quick connection of this mouse and the mating of the computer device with it.

This approach is much more convenient than the need to go into the settings and look for a section in which you can add a Bluetooth-device. As reported in addition, Microsoft is working with partners, including Logitech, to make support for a new accelerated pairing of Bluetooth devices available in more devices.

To date, supported by the operating systems iOS and Android, the functions of pairing devices by Bluetooth are fast enough and convenient for users. Support for the new Bluetooth fast pairing feature will be implemented by Microsoft in the next significant update to the Windows 10 operating system, which is expected to be released in March or April 2018.

Expanding the functionality of platforms for digital devices and their attractiveness for consumers is provided not only by the companies that manufacture operating systems, but also by third-party developers. For modern operating systems, their support by software developers is of great importance. Therefore, leading companies hold special conferences for developers. It is very difficult to plan a technology conference, especially in May, because almost every technology company wants to hold its significant event during this period. Among them, Google and Microsoft, developing the most popular operating systems of our time. Usually, the most important conferences for developers of Google I / O and Microsoft Build are held in May with a difference of a week or two. But in 2018 it will be different.

Microsoft has already announced the time of its Build conference, which will be held in Seattle from May 7 to 9 this year. The Google I / O conference is scheduled for May 8-10. Thus, both conferences almost coincide in time. It is difficult to call such a coincidence ideal. In more detail, the significance of this coincidence for all those who are interested in high technologies was considered in the article by TechCrunch published by Frederic Lardinois.

Developing the operating system Android for mobile devices, Google called the time of its conference earlier than Microsoft. Both companies usually use their conferences for developers in order to make their own important announcements and impress both software developers for their platforms and users who undoubtedly yearn for innovation each year not only for an increasingly powerful "hardware" , but also software functionality. For example, last year, Microsoft during the Build conference announced a new software tool - designed for developers and cloud. In addition, the new version of the operating system Windows 10 was released.

Starting my Build conference a little earlier than starting I / O, Microsoft probably hopes to bring to the event some of the enormous attention that Google usually receives to its developer conference, which is traditionally one of the most visible technological events of the year. This is due to the huge popularity of the Android operating system, under the control of one version of which most modern smartphones work.

Most people wishing to attend one of the most important conferences will be able to visit only one of them. Microsoft usually plans two days for Build for important presentations, so May 8, 2018 will be interesting for the technological press of the day. This year, the brightest presentations of two leaders of the modern technology market, Google and Microsoft, will be held on the same day.

Registration for Build starts on February 15, 2018. On Google I / O, it will take place, as indicated in the Events section of the Google website, between 22 and 27 February this year.
