Microsoft sets up an Android app directory
Since Microsoft is deeply invested in developing software for as many popular platforms (minding its own, of course) as it can, it has to think about not only how they are run, but how they are marketed, too — how they’re packaged and how they’re presented, mainly. So, it’s taken to producing a “Microsoft Apps” app on the Google Play Store.
It’s not just the Office suite that Microsoft offers. Keep in mind that it’s the company running the Xbox, too. Beyond that, apps categorized in bins including Education, Finance and Health & Fitness. It’s just a first-party portal for now, though.
Business Insider is tying this development with the official launch of Cortana on platforms other than Windows 10 Mobile, including CyanogenOS. There looks to be more branches for Microsoft to grow in expanding its mobile software footprint.
