Microsoft is planning some cool new features for Continuum on Windows 10. Still, in its infancy, the company is improving the Continuum feature with every update. As cited from Microsoft’s roadmap, there are few exciting things in the pipeline.

As of now, following are the developments in progress for Continuum:

Touch screen support: Touch input will be supported when connecting a Continuum-compatible phone to a touch monitor.

Laptop-like accessory support: Get support for a new accessory form factor that looks like a lightweight and low-cost laptop, but without any CPU or OS. When paired with a Continuum-compatible phone, it will allow you to use your phone like a laptop.

Projecting on PCs: Instead of only projecting a Continuum for phone experience on unconnected monitors, a Continuum-compatible phone can connect to monitors/screens that are connected to Windows 10 PCs. Connection above the lock screen, as well as behind the lock screen, are supported.

PC to PC casting: Cast your Windows experience from one PC to another PC.

Remote display experience (Name subject to change): Puts a display on every “display less” device, so users can seamlessly control Windows 10 IoT Core applications from any Windows 10 desktop PC, tablet, or phone*. In addition, the technology allows Windows 10 IoT Core devices to use remote sensor readings from any connected Windows 10 device.

These improvements will provide Continuum a lot more functionality in the future, assuming all the things mentioned above make it to the final release in Anniversary update.
