Microsoft unlocks achievements with Windows 10 build 10056
On Friday, a new build of Windows 10 leaked and with it comes numerous updates to the OS. We have already seen some new animations and updated apps. Now it appears that achievements have been turned on too.
If you have the build on your machine and you open up the Insider Hub, you will receive the message seen at the top of the post. Yours may look a bit different as mine was in French for some reason, but if you need a translation, take a look at the image below.
Achievements are used to help entice users to explore content in a way they typically would not without the superfluous acknowledgement by these motivators. Still, the mechanism has shown to be quite popular with Xbox gamers and now it looks like they are coming to the desktop as well.
We do not know if these achievements tie into your gamerscore for the Xbox profiles and opening the Insider Hub is the first one that we have found while using build 10056. So far, Microsoft has remained quiet about Achievements in Windows 10.
If you happen to find any more, make sure to let us know where you found it and if you see any other new additions to Windows 10 that we haven’t covered, send us a tip.
