New Windows Search Home experience is now coming to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Posted in:

Microsoft has just released a new Windows 10 20H1 build today with a couple of Windows Search improvements for Fast Ring Insiders. Along the way, the company also announced that the new Search Home experience that made its debut in the Windows 10 May 2019 Update was now rolling out to all users still on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

To be clear, you should only see this new Search experience on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update if you have turned off Cortana. As a reminder, Microsoft finally separated Cortana from Windows Search in the May 2019 Update, and the company is currently testing a new Cortana beta app with select Insiders in the Fast Ring.

“After receiving positive feedback and comments about this new experience, we’re now making it available to more users by rolling it out to everyone using the Windows 10 October 2018 Update as well. We hope you find them useful and that they help make Search Home more productive for you,” the Windows Insider team explained today.
