Microsoft has quite a few projects in the works in its effort to maintain its reputation as a successful brand that’s always cooking something new up. Some of its upcoming products include new Surface tablet hybrid devices, a possible new smartphone line, new Xbox variants and updates, and of course, consistent updates for Windows 10.

With all that going on, you would almost expect the latest Microsoft product you hear of to also be the last one for a while. If that’s the case, then it was a wise decision because it seems like there are even more Microsoft goodies in the works for fans of the tech giant.

It’s been discovered that Microsoft is creating a product called the Home Hub has been. The service would act as a common platform where all family members could view shared information such as calendars, planners, and so on. While all the specific features of the Home Hub are still unknown, it’s clear that Microsoft has envisioned it as a way to connect all family members. Family interaction is definitely something the company can market and while the idea of a product being intended “for the whole family” isn’t new, Microsoft’s implementation of the concept at this level is at the very least intriguing. There have also been sightings of another device which would supposedly serve as a voice controlled unit which people would be able to access from a distance.

Apparently, these ideas aren’t quite new within Microsoft’s circles, as a post from 2014 featured on LinkedIn shows a Microsoft engineering manager revealing two new Microsoft projects which were developed in collaboration with teams formed by experts in various related domains formerly employed at Nokia’s Beijing division. Before the projects were scrapped, they underwent the first test trials and they were deemed apt for performance.

What all this means is that we might possibly witness the materialization of two older Microsoft projects which have been delayed quite a bit. Until more details are uncovered, fans are left to speculate the true purposes of these two new additions to the Microsoft family.
