Catch all the Microsoft Build announcements over at Windows Central!

Microsoft Build is like Google I/O, but rainier. I kid, I kid. This year, Microsoft’s annual developer takes place in the company’s hometown of Seattle, Washed Out (don’t @ me, Andrew).

Starting May 10 at 8am PT / 11am ET, the event kicks off with a keynote by CEO Satya Nadella, and even though Microsoft just announced its new Chromebook competitor, Windows 10 S, along with a pretty new laptop, the Surface Laptop, there will certainly be some big announcements across the company’s vast product line — including Cortana and some other Android-based initiatives.

On day two, Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group, gets on stage at 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET to talk about what’s happening with Windows 10 and, perhaps, its smartphone strategy.

Our buddies at Windows Central will be covering everything, including all the announcements, analysis and lack of smartphones. I kid, I kid. Sort of.

Google Assistant is learning new languages.

Just a week after adding a few new features, Google’s smart chat app Allo is also picking up new language skills. You can now talk to Google Assistant inside Allo in French and Spanish, and it will respond in that language along with all of the smarts you expect from the Assistant.

French and Spanish join English, Hindi, Portuguese and Japanese as supported languages in Allo, which is a nice group that continues to grow. While users are surely taking advantage of many of Allo’s features in more languages than that, now having the big selling point of the Google Assistant in the chats is a big improvement.

The updated languages are rolling out now, and may take a few days to arrive for everyone in the Allo app.

Watching Netflix laying down is an easy process.

Netflix on Gear VR allows you to binge away, all within the confines of your Gear VR headset. Many folx enjoy catching their shows just before bed, and you don’t have to change up that pattern just because you are watching your favorites while in VR. Being able to lay out in bed, and go ahead and watch away might seem like a pipe dream, but it’s entirely doable, and shouldn’t take more than just a minute or two.
