It appears that Microsoft is working on a new app that will allow users to chat and share their location with friends and family. Called People Sense, the app was detailed by Spanish site Microsoft Place, which managed to get a short hands-on with it, seen in the video above.
Microsoft Place notes that People Sense, currently codenamed Buddy Aware, will allow you to specify a group of people with which to share your location, and will even offer integration with third-party applications for communication and navigation purposes.
The leaked build is dated February 17, which points to something that is under active development. Given the timing of this leak, along with the included features of the app itself, it will be interesting to see if this turns into a replacement for Rooms, which Microsoft recently announced it was dropping support for. In any event, you can find more from Microsoft Place at the source link below.
Thanks for the tips, Gabriel and Sarang!
