Windows Blue leaked in video, reveals more Live Tiles sizes, side-by-side Snaps Views, and more [Video]


An early build of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Blue has been leaked online, revealing many of the feature additions and changes we can expect to see when it releases officially later this year.

The build is listed as Build 9364, and some of most notable differences noticeable from Windows 8 are more sizes for the Live Tiles (they can go smaller now), a new side-by-side Snap View, new system apps, enhanced multi-monitor support and more.

Aside from all the different UI tweaks, it looks like Microsoft will also be integrating its SkyDrive service more heavily when Windows Blue rolls around — a new settings panel dedicated to SkyDrive shows up in the leaked build.

Fans of Windows Movie Maker will also be pleased to know that a Movie Maker replacement has also been spotted in Windows Blue called Movie Moments.

This video is a walkthrough of all the new stuff that can be found so far in Windows Blue, so check it out if you wanna see the next update to the Windows OS in action:

Because this is an early build of the OS, expect many of these features to improved or even changed altogether as its get closer to release. You can expect more features to show up. But as it stands now, what do you think of Windows Blue?
