But the devices will need to be based on Windows 10 IoT Core, not Linux-based OSes. Streaming to the Microsoft-owned service Beam is also now natively enabled.

"Windows Insider for Business participants partner with the Windows Development Team to discover and create features, infuse innovation, and plan for what's around the bend", Microsoft reports. The latter is found on households using Amazon's Echo line of smart speakers. The Creators Update adds support for Intel's Compute Sticks and base support for Intel's Apollo Lake chips.

As officials said: "This (manual download) option is recommended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10". Worth mentioning is that the operating system already supports a wider range of boards such as MinnowBoard and Joule.

If you are not in an organization that subscribes to MSDN there is now another option for you to get the Enterprise version of the Creators Update through the TechNet Evaluation Center. They can opt to mute Cortana whenever they want and continue the process by using mouse and keyboard like any other platform.

After starting to roll out the Creators Update to the PCs, a cumulative update for Mobile, a new build is being pushed out to the Windows 10 Mobile insiders on fast ring as well. This change is likely due to the integration of IoTivity IoT protocols from Open Connectivity Foundation, which helps establish secure connections between IoT devices. Most of the features are on.

And make no mistake, like death, Creators Update comes for us all. As its name suggests, the Windows 10 Creators Update brings improvements and new features that help with content creation and gaming, with an emphasis on virtual and augmented reality compatibility.
