Samsung And Microsoft Announce IoT Collaboration
During Samsung's CES keynote, someone made an unexpected appearance on stage -- Microsoft's executive vice president of the company's Windows and Devices Group, Terry Myerson.
Microsoft and Samsung, traditionally rivals in the computing space, unveiled a new partnership that will integrate Samsung devices and software with Windows 10 devices, as well as tackle upcoming challenges the industry may face with the Internet of Things. This means that users can monitor and control refrigerators, washing machines and other appliances using apps that run on Windows 10.
The outlined partnership would integrate Microsoft's Windows 10 with Samsung IoT-ready appliances so the two can work together with better openness and collaboration.
