Windows 10 bliss

As we await for Microsoft to release the new Windows 10 Technical Preview build, which may have the 9860 build number, there is new information stating that Microsoft has already included a few new features: Battery Saver and Data Sense.

According to Neowin, Data Sense and Battery Saver are now part of the desktop on newer test builds.

Data Sense in Windows 10 like in Windows Phone aims to help users to take control of their data usage on metered connections and those who have the need to use an internet connection via tethering. Information suggests that options for this features include the ability to limit background data usage and limiting data when roaming. On the left pane of the settings page there are three options: Overview, Usage, and Settings.

Battery Saver, is self-explanatory, but basically it’s a feature with the purpose of helping users manage the battery life of their Windows mobile device. Battery Saver will limit background activities when the feature is enabled to save battery. It’s said also that users can enable the feature at any time with the option to have Windows 10 automatically take care of the feature for you, when battery is getting low.

Although these new features already popped up in a newer build of Windows 10 Technical Preview, it doesn’t necessary mean that we’ll them in the next public release. (These particular features are likely to appear in future updates.)

Update: Both DataSense and Battery Saver are present in the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9860.
