Chime in: What's the best way to use Microsoft services on Android?
What's the best way to make the move to Android, without leaving behind Microsoft services? We want to hear from you.
Microsoft's Windows Phone efforts have seemingly come to an end, leaving former users to make the shift to rival platforms. Among the most popular for converts is Google's Android, which offers unrivaled versatility when compared to the rival iPhone.
Even if Microsoft's not currently fielding a competitive mobile solution, Android's flexibility has allowed them to basically colonize the competition. A huge range of Microsoft apps and services are on Android today, including the Office suite, Cortana digital assistant, and even Android-exclusive experiences like the Microsoft Launcher.
Discussions surrounding this recently sparked on our forums, with one Windows Central community member asking for advice on making the switch. With Google and its services so heavily integrated into Android, getting the full Microsoft experience, including emails, calendars, and contacts, can take some work.
But we want to hear from you. What advice do you have for former Windows Phone users making the transition? Are there any hurdles you had to overcome by moving to Android? Make sure to enter the forum thread below and share your thoughts on the move.
