Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17093 is ready for users in the fast ring, and it brings about a bunch of new features.

Tune into the keynote by Kevin Gallo, Vice President of the Windows Developer Platform, and live Q&A session to be the first to hear about the newest features and updates. Just like other native Windows 10 apps, PWAs will also appear in places like Start and Cortana search and would be able to access local calendar and contacts data after taking permission. Learn how you can enable your application to be a native part of the intelligent edge.

Privacy: All companies collect user info on the pretext of further enhancing their service. Allowing people to adjust HDR video playback to get a picture that they like. The new panel will allow users to override the OS' choice of GPU for an app and directly specify whether to use the most efficient adapter or the one with the highest performance. Microsoft is saying that it's a very new tool, and it doesn't look like it may take a lot of extra testing to get it working properly.

Diagnostic Data Improvements: users can now delete the recently introduced Windows Diagnostic Data from Settings Privacy Diagnostics & feedback. Microsoft explains that many modern devices are now HDR capable but need calibration for HDR streams to be able to be watched.

Nest To Merge With Google's Hardware Team
Nest products are frequently used in combination with digital assistants such as the Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa . Wednesday's announcement stated that Nest sold more devices in 2017 than it did in 2015 and 2016 together.

Other features like better multi-GPU support for apps and an improved Game Bar are also being tested in the new Insider Build; most of which are for quality of life improvements. But according to Microsoft, there can't be one recommendation out of UWP and PWA as "the Universal Windows Platform fully embraces the Progressive Web Apps" and EdgeHTML is also the foundational base of UWP apps.

Windows Security Improvements: Windows Defender has been renamed to Windows Security and can be found in Settings Update & Security. After that, users will no longer see entering a password as an option in the Windows interface.

Bluetooth has been debugged, there's a full-screen mode for the Edge browser if you like that sort of thing, and predictive text can now cope with multiple languages.
