Microsoft brings its Authenticator app out of beta

Microsoft has rolled out a new Authenticator app to the Windows Store, as spotted by Windows Blog Italia. Build for mobile devices, this new app is set to replace a number of other authenticator apps to make it more convenient to manage multiple accounts all within a single solution.

Update: By some reports, this update is only working for those on Redstone 2 Insider builds

This new app replaces the Microsoft Account, Azure Authenticator, and Multi-Factor authentication apps. Interestingly, it does appear to be a slightly different and less visually appealing offering than the Authenticator app for Insiders.
