Apple’s Touch Bar is getting some competition from Microsoft. On Tuesday, the tech giant revealed more details about its Wonder Bar — a touch bar that will be built into dual-screen devices with its Windows 10X operating system.
The Wonder Bar seeks to tap into the familiarity of a laptop while also increasing productivity and multitasking by acting as a virtual trackpad for precise mouse movements and being a home for system shortcuts, according to a Microsoft blog post.
“Apps using CompactOverlayView for always-on-top mini views like picture-in-picture, or MediaTransportControl for background audio playback, will automatically be placed into the Wonder Bar, for seamless and natural peripheral multitasking,” the post said.
