With Microsoft continuing to pull back its investments into Windows 10 Mobile, the company has found itself shifting toward established platforms to serve up its mobile experiences. Among the biggest focuses has been the Android OS, with a range of applications and experiences built from the ground up for these devices in mind.
Microsoft Launcher is the latest evidence of this change in approach, delivering a new sleek launcher experience built with Windows 10 PC users in mind. Not only does this add a new flair for customization – this directly integrates Microsoft services into the home screen, tying together loose ends for those making the shift from the Microsoft ecosystem.
With Android continuing to gain traction as a platform for ex-Windows Phone users, users over on the Windows Central forums have been discussing the offerings of Microsoft Launcher and its viability for new Android users.
