Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden are here with their first show of 2019! First up, there's Windows 10 build 18312 for Fast Ring Insider. Next, they dive deep into new features for Windows Mixed Reality that are coming to 19H1 along with the emergence of WebVR.

There's better integration between Cortana and Xbox One now — It's not as speedy as Kinect was, but its capabilities can grow more easily. Last but not least, Dan gives an overview of all the new Windows laptops that were shown at CES 2019.
