A few years ago, Microsoft decided to produce its own smartphones. Of course, they had their own app store, which was different from the one Android offered. There were people who would love to use those Microsoft apps, but they also wanted an Android phone. Lenovo thought of this problem and they announced some apps will be available on Google’s operating system.
This means that if you have a Lenovo device, you will be able to use Microsoft Office, OneDrive or Skype even if you have an Android smartphone. This not the first time Microsoft agrees to share its applications. There also deals with popular companies such as Samsung, Sony or Dell. We are expecting more details about the new deal with Lenovo. Why is Microsoft doing this? First of all, it’s the best way to get more users. People will try the apps and some of them will want to try their smartphones too. Moreover, their applications are not doing very good. On Microsoft store there are a lot of apps that need an update. Some of them can be found only on Android or iOS system. There will be a few years before we will see all those apps Android phones have on a Windows Phone. Microsoft should make some changes or users will start to use other operating systems. For example, the world phenomenon, Pokemon GO, can’t be found on Windows Phones.
Lenovo had some problems with their sales this year, but this new connection with Microsoft could help them get more customers. Do not forget that Lenovo is the world’s largest computer producer. We do not know what products will have the Microsoft apps installed, but Lenovo promised to ship millions of Android devices with this feature in the next years.
Lenovo is a multinational company from China. It develops personal computers, smartphones, and electronic devices. Last year, it was the largest computer vendor by sales. This company is one of the most popular, with customers in more than 160 countries. The deal they are going to make with Microsoft will get it, new users. Microsoft will also have the chance to make its apps more famous. There are many people who will want to use this smartphone just to be able to have Microsoft Office and other Microsoft apps on their devices. We wait to see what other surprises Lenovo has prepared for its customers.
