Within the last couple of days, Microsoft dropped an update for the Microsoft Surface app on Windows 10. Although it’s fairly minor, it adds in a new accessories battery level section to the experience of the application.
The update bumps the latest version of the Surface app on Windows 10 to version 23.0.602.0. As seen in the screenshot, the update revamps the look of the side menu by adding in a battery icon. Upon clicking this icon, one will now find a section dedicated to the battery level of certain connected Microsoft and Surface branded Bluetooth accessories, including the Surface Pen, Surface Dial, Microsoft Surface Mouse. The percentage of battery remaining, and the time the user last checked the battery life is also shown.
Again, this is a fairly minor update, but it will be helpful for figuring out when you will need to change those batteries in your Microsoft Bluetooth accessories. If you’re not already using the app, or if you may have missed the update, you can update and find it in the Windows Store by clicking below.
