what is this new ‘feature’ called windows recall?

Screen snapshots: The Recall system component regularly saves snapshots of the user’s screen and stores them locally on the device.
Image recognition: Windows uses screen segmentation and image recognition to gain insight into what is visible on the screen, allowing users to search for specific content.
Semantic search: Users can search for content using natural language, and the feature will return relevant results from the stored snapshots.
Deep links: Apps can provide deep links, allowing users to pick up where they left off, making it easier to resume tasks.
