Have you ever had to root around in your settings to connect a new mouse and keyboard? It is an experience almost every user has had. You buy new accessories and then have to spend about 20 minutes finding the correct prompts to connect your devices. Luckily for us, Microsoft has begun their rounds of testing for a faster more fluid Bluetooth pairing option. Earlier this month, Windows 10 testers were given access to the new pairing option in the Window 10 build 17093. At this time, the Windows precision mouse is the only device equipped with streamlined pairing.
Implementing across the board
Microsoft is currently working with partners like Logitech to ensure this new Bluetooth pairing option will be available among numerous devices. This new feature works by prompting the user with a notification to engage the device when pairing. This will save time and the frustration of searching through settings for the correct steps and overall making the process smoother and more user-friendly.
Bluetooth pairing isn’t the only notable new feature you can look forward to seeing. Users can also expect to see a new notification center (Action Center), stylus support, and most importantly easier emoji insertion. Think of all the Facebooking, *ahem* I mean work you can get done! This new feature should be implemented in the final Windows 10 version to be released April or May 2018.
