Li-Chen Miller, Group Program Manager for the Windows Ink team said, “I’m excited to share that many of the rich capabilities of Windows Ink are now available to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring today, and we will continue to light up new experiences over the coming months.”
Windows Ink is the set of pen-driven experiences that help you set your ideas in motion with your pen. We built Windows Ink with two key principles in mind: First to make all ink experiences incredibly easy to access so our customers feel confident when they pick up their pens, and second to give people a reason to pick up a digital pen in the first place and deliver powerful experiences that make our customers continue to want to use that pen in Windows every day.
The biggest feature added in this update is the Windows Ink Workspace that brings together all the ink-powered features and apps on your PC in one curated and easy-to-access UX canvas.
Next feature, The sketchpad is a simple blank canvas where you can quickly and easily draw an idea, doodle, create, and solve problems.
Finally, you will see an all new Sticky Notes that allow you to create and save notes to your Windows machine and customize them in little ways through size and color.
