OS X 10.10 Yosemite: Introducing Spotlight

Tim Cook and his collaborators spent a lot of time highlighting the improvements made by OS X 10.10 Yosemite during the WWDC 2014 Keynote. They focused on the new system interface , of course, but also on a few of the new ones. its specificities, such as the new notification center or Spotlight . And in the matter, we can say that the firm was not there with the back of the spoon. Far from it, even.

Disclaimer: This video was shot on the first beta of the system. Many things are therefore likely to change in the weeks and months to come.

Os X 10 10 Yosemite Introducing Spotlight

The Spotlight search box.

On Mavericks, and on previous versions of the system, Spotlight was content to launch simple searches on the hard drive (s) of our machine, to return us all the files, all the documents and all the folders corresponding to the entered characters.

Now things are going to be a little different and Spotlight will finally be able to act as a smart launcher.

The pitcher who wants you well

Once the tool is launched (via the icon located at the top, on the right, or via the keyboard shortcut of our choice), a search field will appear in the middle of the screen. After entering a few terms, the first suggestions will appear in two separate columns.

On the left, we will find all the files related to the terms entered, grouped according to their type, or their nature. Documents with documents, folders with folders, contacts with contacts and so on. The right part will bring up a preview that varies according to the element selected on the left. Like the content of a PDF document, an image or even an application.

Eventually, Spotlight should also be able to display content from Wikipedia and other sites, but this feature is unfortunately not available on the beta version of OS X 10.10. However, calculations and conversions work smoothly.

The tool is not yet as advanced as an Al, or even as the other launchers currently available on the market, but this is only the beginning of the adventure and the publishers of these solutions risk, in the long term, to find yourself in a particularly uncomfortable situation.

Unless the Bitten Apple decides to buy them back, of course.
