Microsoft is looking to fill a hole. A hole left by the absence of applications after the death of Windows Phone.
Not much was demoed at Microsoft’s announcement but they did show off Snapchat being used on a Surface.
At the moment it will be limited to photos and text messages in the next October update. Though full apps will be coming in the future.
It is unclear if iPhones will get these features at the moment. Watch a demo below of how it works dropping a photo into a PowerPoint from a phone below.
