Microsoft’s working on major Edge upgrade, puts other apps on hold
Microsoft’s Edge improvement strategy seems to be intensifying. It looks like the tech giant is slowing down app development for a few apps that are included in Windows 10 such as Weather, News, Calculator, MSN, and Stocks. Microsoft is moving some of the employees who were working on these apps to the Edge team with massive improvements as their target.
More employees are pushed towards the Edge area
Not only app developers are being sent to work on the Edge browser but also other employees. Many engineers who previously worked on RS5 improvements are now working on Edge due to a switch in priorities. Microsoft will go on with the process of prioritizing enterprise features over the consumer ones. Moving employees to work on improving Edge is another step that the company took to respect the path that it took.
Microsoft is working hard to improve Edge
The company has been lately focusing more on enhancing Edge’s features, and it did this also by including some update in the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. So, Microsoft’s choice to move more employees to the Edge team is pretty understandable and legit.
On the other hand, there’s no telling of how all of this will impact the Calendar and Mail apps in Windows 10. These apps are highly used so they should probably have a higher priority as well. Anyway, we’ll only get to see the full effects of this change over the next year, but there’s no doubt about the fact that Microsoft is slowly but surely choosing the web as its favorite platform.
