AccuWeather brings crowdsourced weather to its Windows app with AccUcast
The AccuWeather app for Windows is gaining further feature parity with its Android and iOS cousins thanks to its latest update. Once updated, AccuWeather users will have access to AccUcast, a feature that allows users around the world to crowdsource weather data for others to see on a dedicated map.
With AccUcast, you can also submit your own hyper-local observations for those around you to see. You can choose from various weather (clear, cloudy, rain, snow and ice) and hazard conditions, which will then be visible to others on the AccUcast map. The end goal is giving AccuWeather users a highly accurate look at the weather conditions around them, taken from other users.
If you'd like to check out AccUcast, you can do so with the latest version of AccuWeather, now available on the Windows Store. To access AccUcast, simply head to the weather map and tap the dedicated icon at the bottom of the screen.
