Washington: Windows 10 Mobile update is set to come onto your handset without any further delay. The software giant Microsoft on Tuesday opened a Windows 10 Update History web site and this is going to keep a track on every development in this regard.

For the last three months the Windows 10 Mobile fans are desperately awaiting the arrival of the new OS for their smartphones. The Microsoft’s Lumia handsets, especially the older ones were expected to get the update in December itself. But they had no information at all in this regard till now.

Now things seem to have brighten as Microsoft starts rolling out the update. “After listening to feedback regarding the level of disclosure for Windows 10 updates, we decided to implement a new system for communicating updates to the operating system,” a Microsoft representative said.windows-10 menu

The statement went on to add, “Today we are rolling out the Windows 10 update history site, a hub for the release notes that will accompany each update and serve as a historical record of prior release notes.” In October, the Redmond-based firm had promised to become more transparent about the updates it provides for Windows 10. It is notable that Windows 10 Update History is similar to the way that Microsoft documents its Surface firmware updates.
