Windows 10 Redstone 2 Could Feature Native Support for Wireless USB
Microsoft has been working to provide native support for accessories which previously required custom drivers to work properly. Keeping that in mind it is possible that Windows 10 Redstone 2 could feature native support for wireless USB. The latest version of the Windows 10 Redstone 2 insider build includes MA-USB driver. MA-USB is a new standard introduced which allows you to transfer data wirelessly.
MA-USB is compatible with USB 3.1, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 and it allows wireless devices and docking stations to communicate over the USB protocol. A physical USB connection is not needed to achieve this.
Windows 10 Redstone 2 is expected to bring improvements to mobile Windows 10. It is expected to come out in the second quarter of 2017. It is rumored that we will also be getting the Surface phone about the same time.
The Surface phone is a highly anticipate device. There have been a couple of rumors about the device and people have made some renders of the Surface phone to give users an idea of what the device could come out to be but we know nothing for sure about the device and all this hype could be nothing but air at the end of the day.
Microsoft’s vision for the future is that consumers will only need one device and they would switch between displays and peripherals so wireless USB could be a part of that vision as well. It is likely that we will be getting this feature in the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 2 when it comes out next year.
Windows 10 Redstone 2 is something we are looking forward to and you should be too. We will cover more about Windows 10 Redstone 2 when we have more to share until then all we can do is wait and see what Microsoft has to offer. What do you think about Windows 10 Redstone 2 and wireless USB?
