Welcome back to our Windows 10 news recap, where we go over the top stories of the past week in the world of Microsoft’s flagship operating system.

New Electron-based Facebook Messenger app starts rolling out on Windows 10 Microsoft Store

Facebook looks to be updating its Messenger app on Windows 10. Users of the Beta version of the app are reportedly receiving an update that adds several new features to the app, but more importantly, it makes the app Electron-based.

Windows 10 could soon split Feature Experience updates, delivered via an app, from the core OS

Windows 10 engineers could be putting in place the building blocks for making Windows 10 more modular, allowing shell feature updates to be done independently of the core OS, allowing more updates to be pushed out.

That’s it for this week. We’ll be back next week with more Windows 10 news.
