Just like it was announced, some big companies started to develop their apps for Windows 10 platforms. After Uber, TuneIn, and Wall Street Journal, AccuWeather also released its own Weather for Life Universal app for Windows 10 Store.

The app has been redesigned to fit more into Windows 10 environment, as it now features a hamburger button menu, similar to the default Windows 10 apps.

Weather for Life New Features and Cortana Integration

Weather Life provides a variety of information about the current weather situation in the selected city or region. It provides info like current conditions, daily and hourly forecasts, location information, temperatures, weather radar, and a summary of the next day’s projected weather conditions.

Just like the majority of new Universal app, the new AccuWeather app is also integrated with Cortana, allowing you to check for weather condition, by simply saying “Cortana, what’s my AccuWeather forecast?”

It also brings a full Live Tile support, as users are able to pin multiple tiles with their favorite locations to the Start Menu. The ability to pin multiple favorite locations is also available for Microsoft’s default Windows 10 Weather app, but AccuWeather also provides current radar conditions for every pinned location.

The new app also contains some standard features for every weather forecast app, like the ability to change metric units, choosing the default location when the app is starting, the ability to control (turn on/off) animations, and toggle severe weather alerts.

AccuWeather is the part of Universal Windows Platform, therefore it’s available for Windows 10 PCs, but it’s still unavailable for mobile devices. However, users won’t have to wait too long for the app to appear in Windows Store on Windows 10 Mobile, because it will arrive during the day.

Let us know in the comments what do you think about the new AccuWeather app, and if the app become available on Windows 10 Mobile for you.

You can download AccuWeather Universal app for free, from the Windows Store.
