Microsoft seamingly working on a 'new mobile software experience' - Reports

30 May 2017 0

Tech giant Microsoft is all willing to regain the lost market share in the mobile space worldwide with the much apparent demise of their mobile operating system i.e Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile platforms that didn’t succeed to face the competition by Google powered Android and iOS from Cupertino-based Apple. Third party reports suggest that Microsoft's phone market share is decreasing dramatically as Android and iOS lead the market.

Though it's clear that Microsoft is all willing to penetrate into the mobile market fast as it's critical for the company to establish its self into it as Google and Apple are working hard to tackle down each other in the mobile space.

Some reports suggest that Microsoft is working on a new software experience that is thought to be a branch of Windows Mobile that would be powering a new hardware that is being tested internally at the Microsoft headquarters.

A software offering an all new UI than what we are used to with Windows Phone could be a hope for the company in years to come. Currently, there is no confirmation on when this new project could get any official confirmation from the company or its officially released as a beta or gets any similar status, though it's apparent that Microsoft needs to get their heads together if they are willing to get any considerable share in the mobile industry.

The company is seemingly expecting ‘new experiences’ with the software though it's not yet sure how it would be supporting the already present applications that are published on the Windows Store. It's not yet sure, though the reports suggest that it’s possible that the new software experience might not support Silverlight based apps.

Whatever the case may be, the entire project could take several months or a year to get to a point where we get to see any considerable update it. What do you think of the new step from Microsoft if the reports are true? Do you really think that Microsoft would be able to make a comeback in the mobile space? Do let us know in the comment section down below.
