Microsoft’s Cortana app can now be set as default on Android

Cortana is still scheduled to be released for Android but before its official launch, Microsoft is doing its best to test the app and fix whatever bugs or issues that may be encountered. It’s not even a month after the beta testing program was introduced unofficially to a select group of Android users in the United States and then leaked, and the software giant is already announcing an update.

Microsoft releases new productivity tools for Android Wear

Microsoft, fresh off the success of their Windows 10 launch, isn’t sitting on their laurels when it comes to their products in other platforms. They’ve announced a whole slew of productivity product updates, this time specifically for wearable and smartwatches, including some for smartwatches running on the Android Wear platform. This includes OneNote, OneDrive, and Microsoft Translator, all of which now have apps and features created especially for that gadget on your wrist.

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 beta launches their own Android launcher

In another step in their bid to become more relevant to other consumers, specifically for Android users, Microsoft is working on a new app that is now in a private beta-testing phase. The Arrow Launcher, is, you guessed it, an Android launcher that tries to bring the usual features that we enjoy from launchers, while bringing something unique and a Microsoft sensibility as well. And since it’s still in beta, you can contribute to making it a bit better.

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. When it comes to work and business, using a corporate email and a reliable inbox app is recommended. However, opening and loading messages on a native email client can take some time. It can be more convenient if one can just send a quick note or question to anyone. Sure, instant messaging apps can be enough but for work and school, there's the new Send app that allows fast communication between Office 365 business and school email account owners.

Microsoft’s Hyperlapse now out of beta for Android devices

Hyperlapse is now out on Android devices! But before you get all excited, we need to tell you that we’re not talking about Instagram’s Hyperlapse, but the rather confusing app of the same name from Microsoft. But despite that, they do have the same function. And now that Microsoft’s version is now out of beta, you will be able to enjoy the features without signing up with any group or downloading anything other than the app itself.

Microsoft finally releases foldable Bluetooth keyboard in stores

We’ve seen it for months, and we even talked about it previously, and people have been anticipating having this bad boy (or rather, good boy) in their hands. Finally, our keyboarding dreams have come true as Microsoft’s Universal Folding Keyboard is now available in gadget stores near you (hopefully). Not only is it compatible with any device, regardless of platform, but it is also thin and foldable, so it really won’t make an impact on your bag (but maybe it will on your wallet, a little).

Microsoft launches the Halo Network app on Google Play

If you really love Halo – as in, you can’t live without it – then you must be clapping as you read the headline. For us normal people, it’s Microsoft trying to extend the reach of its influence, even in gaming. For all of you who adore Cortana and know all there is to know about Master Chief, the Halo Channel app on Android will be a total feast. Well, maybe not that much.
