Microsoft releases new Windows 10 preview with Eye Control, improvements to Edge, Console, and input

Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs with the recently announced Eye Control feature, as well as improvements to Edge, Console, input, and Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG). This is the ninth build of the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is slated to arrive later this year (likely in September).

Windows 10 is a service, meaning it was built in a very different way from its predecessors so it can be regularly updated with not just fixes, but new features, too. Microsoft has released many such updates, including three major ones: November Update, Anniversary Update, and Creators Update.

The biggest addition by far is Tobii’s eye tracking technology, which was announced as coming to Windows 10 just yesterday. The feature makes Windows 10 more accessible by empowering people with disabilities to operate an on-screen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes. You’ll need a compatible eye tracker so that you can accomplish tasks normally done with a mouse and keyboard.
