A tweet from @h0x0d has revealed that the new build will allegedly come with a new keyboard which is part of Microsoft Windows’ CShell – a method for Windows users to share the operating system and additional aspects across multiple Windows devices. It is reported to be available on smartphones as well as PCs once it is up and running.
According to Windows Central, the new keyboard will empower the user with swipe typing capabilities that Windows phones already offer, but this time on PCs and tablet devices. As stated above, the keyboard is reportedly an aspect of CShell, and that points to the fact that the keyboard can be shared across multiple devices thanks to CShell’s idea of universal components.
What’s more is that the new virtual keyboard could also potentially support input via pen, a feature that current virtual keyboards on Windows 10 PCs offer. At the moment, the upcoming keyboard is still in the works somewhere in Microsoft, but that doesn’t mean we won’t learn more about it in the next few weeks as development progresses.
