You know that new-fangled social media app that all the kids use that we're simply too old and uncool to understand? Microsoft still wants a piece of it, apparently. At least, according to vague "banking sources."
Are you a Surface Duo user that happens to also enjoy TikTok? Good news! The official TikTok app for Android now supports spanning on Surface Duo, meaning you can use the app across both displays to see even more content at once. On the left is your search and trending tags, and on the right is the usual TikTok video stream.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, Dan has a Surface Duo in hand and provides his impressions of the hardware while carefully skirting questions about software as he continues testing the new device. He and Zac also talk about Windows 10 20H2 build 19042.487 rolling out to the Beta and Release Channels.
Microsoft's bid for TikTok could come to an end soon. A new report claims TikTok owner ByteDance has selected a buyer for its U.S., Australian, and New Zealand businesses, and an announcement could come "as soon as Tuesday."
At one point, Microsoft considered becoming a minority stakeholder of TikTok. Over time, that interest developed into potentially purchasing all of TikTok. That saga has reportedly been a "soap opera" influenced by government rulings and complex factors.
It's been a busy week for Microsoft, and thus for Daniel and Zac as well! Significant organizational changes are happening for the Windows and Azure teams. Meanwhile, Satya Nadella works to acquire TikTok in the midst of very mixed signals from President Trump. All that, and more.
