Windows On Mobile

While Microsoft has moved away from Windows as an operating system for smartphones, the company is now focused on enabling users to more easily interact between Windows PCs and their iOS or Android device. The company unveiled a new app, Your Phone, which will provide "a window into a user’s phone right from their PC for seamless transition of content like messages, photos and notifications." Meanwhile, the Android version of the Microsoft Launcher app will include support for discovery of line-of-business apps, as well as IT advisement on configuration, for enterprise users. And finally, a new Windows feature called Sets will provide "an easier way to organize your stuff and get back to what you were doing"; developers will see their Universal Windows Platform work with Sets "from the start," as a way to help keep customers engaged, Microsoft said.
