Microsoft announces Windows Spotlight, a new lockscreen experience for Windows 10
Microsoft recently introduced a new Windows 10 lock experience at its Build 2015 event. The new lockscreen is designed to give the user the ability to provide feedback on the lockscreen background image directly from the lockscreen itself.
The new lockscreen feature, which Microsoft calls the Windows Spotlight, will not only show you beautiful images from Bing, but also images of Windows devices running certain apps for example. You can choose to ‘like’ or ‘not like’ the lockscreen images so you can curate the types of images which will be displayed on your lockscreen. So for example, if over time, you’ve ‘liked’ images of nature, you’ll start seeing more images of nature show up on your lockscreen, the same goes with pictures of kittens.
This new lockscreen was seen running on Windows 10 build 10105 on stage at Build, so expect the feature to make it into the Windows 10 Insider Preview in the near future. Stay tuned to WinBeta as we report on the new Windows 10 features as they get announced.Further reading: Build 2015, Microsoft, Windows 10
