As for the input experiences across emoji and clipboard history, the company is “bringing input and clipboard history together into a single experience. You can still press WIN + V to go straight to clipboard history, but now you can also access it by switching to the “Clipboard” category after pressing WIN + [.] or WIN + [;].”
Windows Voice Typing is another highlight of the upcoming features. Some of the sub-features of voice typing are touch keyboard optimisation, auto-punctuation, an updated back end, using the keyboard shortcut (WIN + H) or tapping the microphone button on the touch keyboard to begin voice typing etc.
