It showcases how Microsoft is finding new ways to make communication better, along with its effort to integrate with Windows on mobile devices. With Windows 10, released in July, the company is courting app developers by promising they can create apps for a desktop computer and easily remake them to run on tablets and smartphones. Google has a number of other apps that could perfectly suit the “Modern” UI of Windows 8 and Windows 10, such as Google Maps, Google Drive, and Google Docs.
It looks as if Microsoft is in denial about the Windows phone platform primarily because the “fix” to this platform would be too complicated and expensive.
This news might seem a little hard to swallow considering the tumultuous history between the two tech giants, however, the company’s push toward being more platform agnostic under its new CEO Satya Nadella is certainly a positive move.
Myerson was also keen to talk up Windows apps, revealing that Netflix users are now spending more time in the Netflix app than the Netflix website on Windows 10. Splendid. This is very good news for anyone excited about Microsoft’s upcoming range of Windows 10 handsets. In addition, players have streamed more than 120 years worth of content from Xbox One to Windows 10 through the new streaming functionality.
Windows phone users were depending on other alternatives or unofficial apps from third parties for the needed services.
For instance, Continuum will able to know when you’re using Windows 10 with a mouse and keyboard attachment and when you’ve switched to a touch interface with finger- and pen-based inputs. It is wise not to delay any moment and apply the update right away.
“It’s great to see consumers embracing Windows 10, which is a fantastic environment for the Netflix app.”
There is speculation that Microsoft will release a Surface phone – a sleek, sexy looking device that will be attractive and may bring Microsoft back into the mobile race as a serious contender. Unless the user intervenes, an upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 will swap in Edge for rival browsers as the default.
