We are less than two hours away from Microsoft s Windows 10 event that is scheduled to take place in the New York City. Microsoft has teased the event as the next chapter in the Windows story, which hints that the major highlight of the event will be the new updates coming to its Windows 10 operating system. The event kicks off at 10:00AM PDT (7:30PM IST) and will be live streamed on Microsoft s website here. Also Read - Windows 11 could be a free upgrade for you provided you fall in this category

Besides updates to Windows 10 OS, codenamed Redstone 2, the company is also expected to introduce a Surface PC, a glimpse into the progress made with the HoloLens, and possibly a competitor to the Google Home and Amazon Echo assistants. To those who were expecting a new Surface smartphone from Microsoft s kitty are in for a disappointment as Microsoft is unlikely to bring out the purported device just yet. Here s a list of all that you could expect from the Microsoft event tonight. Also Read - Windows 11 leaked online: Centralised start menu, revamped UI, new widgets, here's what to expect

Windows 10 update: The highlight of the event is the updates to the Windows 10 OS. Microsoft is expected to detail the improvements coming as a part of Windows 10 Redstone 2 update. Some new features are already being tested with Windows Insiders, including new trackpad changes that allow Windows 10 users to fully control and customize gestures. The update is also expected to bring blue light reduction feature and a new HomeHub feature that will help control IoT devices. The company is further expected to bring its Holographic shell to Windows 10 PCs.

Surface PC: Instead of a Surface smartphone, Microsoft could introduce a new all-in-one Surface PC that will possibly compete with the Apple iMac. Expected to run the latest Microsoft Windows 10 OS, it is also likely to feature a large 24-inch / 27-inch display that will come with a hinge for support. A design similar to the Surface tablet could also mean that the Surface PC will come with touchscreen and stylus support and could offer the ability to 3D objects and Holograms.

By far, Microsoft s creative genius in terms of PC innovation appears to be limited to stylus and touchscreen. Given the company s new found interest in 3D imaging and HoloLens, we could expect the Intel RealSense camera on its purported Surface PC. According to recent FCC filing leaks, the company could also unveil new Surface PC accessories, including a keyboard and mouse.

New Paint app: From hardware to software; Microsoft is speculated to introduce a new Paint app for Windows 10 that has been redesigned to be a Universal Windows app with pen-and touch-friendly features along with the ability to create 3D objects. This essentially means, irrespective of which hardware you use, the new universal Paint app for Windows 10 will let you draw or scribble the way you like. According to a report on The Verge, a Twitter user discovered launch videos of the new Paint app which suggest that Microsoft is currently focusing on what can be called as a 3D ecosystem. The user also discovered 3D versions of Skype and Powerpoint. The event could therefore, serve as a significant occasion for Microsoft to delve deeper into its 3D plans for the future.

HoloLens and Xbox One: Two of Microsoft s most looked-forward to devices, the HoloLens and Xbox could see new updates at the event. With Microsoft s growing focus on 3D technologies, it but makes sense to gauge the progress the company has made with its HoloLens. Although there is no hint if Microsoft will introduce a new iteration of the augmented reality 3D headset but the company appears to have plans to let other manufacturers create their own HoloLens headsets. By far, the company has teased how the purported Holographic shells will appear on Windows 10 and at the event it could possibly fully demonstrate how 3D holograms will improve the PC experience of Windows 10 users.

With its gaming console Xbox One and Xbox One S, Microsoft could introduce cross-platform gaming features. The company already has plans to introduce its all new Project Scorpio console in 2017; however, it is unlikely if it will tease the device at the event tonight.

Amazon Echo competitor: After Google s jump into the hardware ecosystem, it is evident that Microsoft will not stay behind in the race. The company is reportedly preparing to launch the HomeHub feature in Windows 10 to help control IoT devices. The event might as well see a separate HomeHub device that builds on Cortana s AI abilities and competes with Amazon Echo and the Google Home. The voice-activated speaker is said to include the ability to store files on the device, and respond to questions just like Amazon s Alexa.

We will have to wait and watch till Microsoft executives take to stage to introduce all that is coming from the software giant s kitty this October.
