Microsoft's apps make their way to more Android devices

With the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 10 at the Unpacked event, Samsung and Microsoft further strengthened their partnership.

Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft is stronger than ever

The two tech giants are aiming to bring Windows 10 and Android closer than ever. And it all starts with the apps.

Here’s what Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, stated:

Our ambition is to help people be more productive on any device, anywhere – and the combination of our intelligent experiences with Samsung’s powerful, new devices makes this a reality.

The partnership brings the Your Phone app on Samsung’s devices, which lets users see their notifications, text messages, and mirror their Android screen on a Windows 10 device.

Furthermore, Your Phone users will be able to make and receive calls directly from their PC later this year.

More MS apps will be integrated with Android

OneDrive will also be integrated on Android, letting users sync their data to Microsoft’s cloud. Other apps that will come pre-installed with Samsung devices are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. 

Not only that, but the Redmond giant will focus on all devices in the future, promising a new user experience for Android tablets and wearables through an updated Outlook app for Android.

Expect the tech partnership to bring more app integration in the future and a whole new cross-platform experience.
