Microsoft shares Creators update Docking & UI improvements. Targets Universal Docking with future updates

Microsoft has shared its vision of “Universal Docking” in slides of its WinHEC 2016 presentation on Docking. Microsoft defines universal docking as: Any Windows Dock should be able to work with any Windows 10 Device, be it phone, laptop or tablet.

Very interestingly, universal docking scenario is considered for both Wireless and Wired Docking.

As per the slides, while Creators update brings certain Docking improvements, Microsoft is planning to bring 802.11ad Docking with future updates ( Redstone 3 and later).

Coming to what Creators update brings in terms of Docking improvements, Microsoft gives us a taste of UI improvements and new features in slides. Windows 10 Creators update will bring MA-USB support. Device will work like a native MA-USB host.

Here is how the Wireless Docking UI looks like and works.

This is the future of wireless Docking, Microsoft plans to enable with Redstone 3 and later updates.

  • This looks like very welcome news. I hope they can add this to the insider preview soon. I am not running an insider preview at the moment but on the current Win 10 mobile I have found that when I use a generic USB-C hub that it will work fine with both audio and visual when connected through HDMI, and then as soon as I connect to another screen I can experience issues visually, but also on many occasions it looses the ability to then transmit audio. The only way I have found to fix this is to do a full reinstall of Windows 10 on the 950XL. Does anyone have any tricks to get audio back to HDMI once it has been lost??? Cheers Adam
