The new OS version is adapted depending on the device that is running; a PC, a smartphone, a tablet or an XBox.This is a big step for the software giant and of course, it is seen as a big advantage for users and developers alike.
On one hand, users have the same applications on any device as there is a common application store. That’s a big advantage for users because we can use and synchronize all applications on all devices, all interconnected devices without compatibility problems. Furthermore, this can facilitate our lives in many ways. For example, changes we make in one file that we have synchronized will be displayed on any device, with the latest version available. Applications that allow interaction with all devices simultaneously is a huge resources for users!
This is also, of course, a major step up for developers. To create an application that works on any device with the installed platform reduces costs, as software developers do not have to create the same application for four different devices.
With the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft will pit its own technology ecosystem against fierce competition that is suffering with Google and Apple.
Perhaps with these changes, Microsoft may be able to hike it’s Windows phone sales and rise to the challenge that Google and Apple present.
