Newest Microsoft Garage apps include conference calls, China weather, and Visual Studio management
Microsoft has announced a new wave of Windows Phone apps from its Microsoft Garage division, but a few of them have already been released on their own. One of them is Join Conference, which Microsoft rebranded earlier in February after previously calling it Nokia Conference.

As before, the app is designed to make it easier to dial into conference calls, and Cortana users can even speak into their phone and say "Join Conference" to begin their group chat.
