Microsoft to Avail Android Apps for Windows

Microsoft is considering its options very carefully. It may avail the Android platform for its Windows software. This would send the pre-existing strength of Windows up into the stratosphere. Yet it is a precarious venture that has to be undertaken with extreme care.

Microsoft to Avail Android Apps for Windows

The number of applications that Microsoft has at its disposal is few and far between. That is why a simple video game as Flappy Bird is not available on Windows. 

In order to gain access to the wonderful world of variegated apps, Microsoft may have to resort to the Android platform. That is because it is the only available alternative that can strengthen and consolidate Microsoft’s Windows software beyond belief. 

And with Nokia busy manufacturing an Android phone, Microsoft (which is its parent company) has the prerogative of employing Android applications in its current repertoire. While it is still premature to make any forecasts, Windows may feature Android apps sooner than you think. 

There are those who fear the tough competition offered by Android. They don’t want Windows to drown in its efforts to diversify. Yet the voices of reason and common sense say that a little competition never hurt anyone. 

In fact, they reiterate that there is no harm in the gamble and the more the merrier. However, the step is a tentative one and Microsoft will have to look before it leaps. Microsoft is a total contrast to the other organizations. 

Its own cloud service and servers not to mention setup has an organic unity that is not to be easily disturbed. At present, Microsoft’s state is one of creative chaos. To emerge from this into a stable harmony will take some adjustments and ad hoc decisions.
