When Microsoft initially introduced us to the Windows 10 OS, it was expected that the company will be bringing forward many changes. Slowly, the changes did come out. The company is also getting a good response when it comes to the OS. The Windows 10 Mobile OS and new-generation Lumia devices, however, were disappointing. With the Windows 10 Mobile OS anniversary update coming out, things seem to be getting better for the company’s mobile phone division.

Microsoft started rolling out the Windows 10 anniversary update earlier this month for PCs and tablets. The company is now working on bringing forward similar changes to the Windows 10 Mobile OS. It was previously anticipated to start rolling out from the 9th of August, but that date was later pushed further.

Microsoft mentions in their official blog post announcing this update that it might vary depending on “manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, hardware limitations and other factors.” However, the company is quite focused on releasing this update, and a global rollout is soon anticipated.

To know if the Windows 10 Mobile OS anniversary update is ready to be downloaded, users should head over to Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. Various changes are about to roll out for the users of the Windows 10 Mobile OS. This includes major changes to the notifications and menus. In addition to that, the Skype app too, is about to get big changes. The universal app for Skype will now be made functional for the Window 10 Mobile users.

Microsoft has officially ‘killed’ Skype for the older devices running the Windows 8/8.1 OS, and that eventually become non-functional for them. However, with the Windows 10 Mobile OS anniversary update, things look like they are getting better for Microsoft.
