Image 2 Best Microsoft apps for Android

Microsoft dominated the entire world at one point, with every desktop running a version of Windows. Today it is still a powerhouse for desktop computers and laptops although Microsoft never really got started with mobile technology.

Despite its best efforts, Windows Phones never really managed to make a dent in the industry and as such Microsoft are planning to put more of its resources into their apps for Android. We’ve found 5 great Microsoft apps which any Android user can take full advantage of.

  1. Skype - free IM & video calls

You can receive, compose and respond to e-mails with the tap of your screen and you can attach media and the like just as if you were in a browser. You can also synchronize your account with your contacts and calendar. Overall it’s a great tool to use.

    Virtual or digital assistants have been on the rise since iOS launched Siri. While nothing is quite as good as Siri, Android does have a few options (including Google Assistant). Cortana is Microsoft’s version, which is a personal assistant that answers questions, obeys commands and can give you personal replies. It can be controlled by voice too which makes it a great little asset to use.
