Microsoft’s awaited OS Windows 10 is set to be adaptable to the popular apps on Apple and Android devices, a company executive announced on Wednesday in the company’s annual press conference.
In a bid to get more users for its software Windows 10, Microsoft will be releasing tools for its software to accept and operate some of the popular apps that are being run on other devices.
“Windows 10 represents a new generation of Windows, built for an era of more personal computing,” CEO Satya Nadella said during a keynote speech, adding that ‘today’s consumers and corporate workers want to have the same experience when they are using a variety of devices’.
As of now, there are more than 1.4 million apps for Android phones and about the same for Apple devices, while there are only a few hundred thousand apps that work on Windows phones and tablets. Microsoft intends to not let this demographic stand in the way of a successful reception for Windows 10, according to a TOI report.
