The Build 2016 conference brought many new announcements for developers that will improve their efforts to build more functionality and features into their apps. Microsoft also took the opportunity to announce some great news, like Windows 10 having more than 270 Million users and Skype being integrated with Cortana.

Microsoft also announced that Skype has finally reached the 300 million monthly users mark, a great milestone for the program. In addition to the new Cortana and Bots-related feature to be built right inside Skype, Microsoft has worked quite hard to integrate Skype deeper inside Windows after acquiring it.

With this number of monthly users, Skype has entered the league of some of the most used instant messaging and VoIP apps even if its numbers are still lower than the number of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger users. Apart from this, Microsoft made several other announcements related to Cortana as well as HoloLens, which you should definitely check out.
