Face tracking feature to come with the Windows 10 Mobile front-facing camera?

According to a report published today, the latest version of the front-facing camera build for Windows 10 Mobile, 5.38.2004, comes with support for Face tracking. The feature recognizes when the camera is focused on a face, and keeps it inside a constant frame. This helps the subject stay in focus even when he or she is moving around. At the same time, the icon for the camera has been updated to make the camera app easier to discover.

Just yesterday, we told you that the latest Technical Preview build of Windows 10 Mobile seems to include a native app that allows users to record both sides of a phone call. With speculation that Microsoft could be close to a major write-off related to its purchase of Nokia Devices and Services, the software giant is feverishly working on including a number of new features in Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows 10 will be launched on July 29th, although the mobile version of the OS won't see the light of day until September.

So for selfies? Seems like a good feature. One thing that would be really awesome for the front facing camera would be facial recognition to sign in. I don't think it requires any special hardware, so it is possible.

Rumors have been floating around of an iris scanner coming up on W10 flagships. That, if actually possible and imminent, would be far more secure I'd imagine.

Why do you have to taint every MS article with an opening or ending like the second paragraph of this article? Can't you just report the damn feature and say "cool, we look forward to it"? MS has been working on a number of features for W10 mobile from its inception, they're not just suddenly "feverishly" working on a bunch of features because of their most recent financial rumors.
