Surface Hub 2S is here! Zac Bowden and Daniel Rubino have all the details on this business-focused device. Also targeted at business users, a HoloLens 2 emulator is now available to developers so they can begin working on new apps.

They also talk about Xbox One S All-Digital Edition — It's a good idea that makes sense for some users, but it's marred by an unattractive price and form factor that fails to differentiate it from other Xbox One models. Something that is great all around, however, is Xpotify. It's a PWA version of Spotify that provides the best experience for Windows 10.

Finally, Samsung Galaxy Fold will be available on April 26th. The team discuss the screen failure experienced by several users, and look at Microsoft's own attempts at multiple screen devices.

Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden have the latest news on Windows 10 19H1 — It's now officially known as Windows 10 May 2019 Update! They also discuss a merger of Fast Ring and Skip Ahead Ring.

Microsoft is erring on the side of caution by implementing significant changes to functionality of Windows Update, and the company is removing books from the Microsoft Store. Finally, 'Xbox Game Pass Ultimate' may combine Game Pass and Xbox Live to help players save money on both services.
