Xbox Music app now known as ‘Microsoft Groove’

Microsoft's very own Xbox Music app for Android is getting a new name. Don't be surprised if you see 'Groove' everywhere because the software giant has made changes to some of its apps. Aside from the music app being rebranded, Xbox Video will now be known as 'Movies & TV'. The name 'Groove' may mean a lot of things but I'd like to think that it has something to do with establishing a habit or a routine. Music as a routine? Yep, Groove can help you with that.

Microsoft Garage team releases Send app, Android version coming soon

With the numerous instant messaging and email inbox apps available, it can be difficult to choose just one that will help you with all your personal and professional messaging needs.

Microsoft confirms acquisition of productivity app Wunderlist

The moment that calendar app Sunrise integrated critically-acclaimed and user-favorite to-do list app Wunderlist, people started speculating that Microsoft is on the verge of buying the latter.

And why create something from the ground up when you can just simply integrate into your system an already-established product? So yes, Microsoft has confirmed that Wunderlist is now part of their growing stable of productivity tools.
