Windows 10 is getting one of the best features from Android and iOS: picture-in-picture support.

Microsoft is introducing the new feature as part of the Creators Update, which is anticipated to be offered to existing PCs in April. Microsoft is calling its picture-in-picture feature "Compact Overlay," and it will be offered for all app designers creating Universal Windows apps. Integrated apps like Movies & TELEVISION or Skype will support picture-in-picture, permitting you to watch a TELEVISION show or watch a Skype video hire a window while browsing away to another app.

Microsoft is evaluating the feature as part of the current Windows 10 develop 15031, offered for fast ring insiders today. Dynamic Lock is likewise included in this build, enabling you to match a Bluetooth phone to have Windows immediately lock your PC when the phone isn't really found close-by your PC. It's a good function, however it's disappointing not to see Microsoft utilize the Windows Hello cam on desktop PCs to immediately detect whether somebody is nearby their PC.
