Microsoft Updated Band Sync App with Faster USB Charging

Microsoft just introduced a new update for its Band Sync app for Windows. This app syncs your Microsoft Band data to the cloud, so you can access it on other Windows-powered devices. The app works perfectly on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. The syncing software works with the same account you use on your Windows Phone Band companion app, and it even syncs data while your phone is charging via USB.

Unlike the most of newly released Windows apps, Band Sync app is not a Universal Windows app, and you can’t download it from the store. But this is completely normal, since the app works on older versions of Windows, as well.

Update Improves Band Sync App Interface

Here’s what the latest Band Sync App update brings:

  • Works on Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8 and above.
  • Sync faster than with your phone while your device is charging over USB.
  • Get updates and restore the software on your Band.

There are no updates of Microsoft Band’s interface, but Microsoft changed the design of the app itself. Nothing so special, just some changes of app’s layout and alignment elements. The latest update also brought some new options to the apps’ homepage, as you’re now able to quickly access settings of your Microsoft Band.

You don’t have to manually download the update, if you already own the Microsoft Band Sync app, as it will prompt you to update automatically, once you open the app.

As we said, you can’t download the Band Sync app from the store, but you can get it for free, from this link.
