Amazon Alexa Now Available for all Windows 10 Devices

Fixed an issue that caused Windows applications running from WSL through interop and applications using the *PseudoConsole APIs to redraw the top left corner excessively (see Microsoft/console#235).

Earlier in the year, Amazon teamed up with some of the biggest PC makers to brings Alexa to Windows 10. But don't panic, your license is still good.

Updated Microsoft's activation servers appear to be on the blink this morning - some Windows 10 users woke up to find their Pro systems have, er, gone Home.

We fixed an issue resulting in the home page of Settings having no visible scrollbar in recent flights if the window was small enough to need one.

Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.

Starting with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, we embarked on a journey to help reduce the number of distractions you encounter when you're trying to get in the zone. I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated.

We fixed an issue where Settings would crash if you were typing in the search box with the embedded handwriting panel and went to switch languages within the panel. The new app adds Alexa support on compatible Windows 10 devices.

And you're not alone in this annoyance. It's not yet known what is causing the problem but rest assured that Microsoft is well aware of the problem and is working to get everything running smoothly again.

The image above, from user FaiKee on Twitter, shows the issue that some users are facing with the activation of their install.
