Microsoft has this week announced that they will be issuing updates to Windows 8.1 once every month going forward, instead of the process they used previously, which seen updates only arrive once every few months or even years.

This new process has been named “Update Tuesday’, and will include a number of security and non-security updates, but primarily to deliver significant improvements to the system, allowing them to respond to customer and partner feedback faster.

Update Tuesday will also provide users with new improvements, tweaks, performance enhancements and more features.

The first of these updates should start with Windows 8.1 Update 2, which will be released on August 12th and will include precision touchpad improvements, a new feature called Miracast Receive, new tweaks to SharePoint Online and more.

Current Windows 8.1 users who have opted in for automated updates will automatically receive these monthly updates, whilst those who haven’t simply need to install any new updates via the Windows Update window.

We expect that Microsoft will also be released a completely new version of Windows soon, called Windows 9 Threshold, it is said to debut next spring.
