Satya Nadella Hints at Microsoft 365 for Consumers

Satya Nadella Hints at Microsoft 365 for Consumers

Officials at Microsoft have invested their one year working on the public repositioning of Cortana from standalone digital assistant to assistance aide. Windows 10 added support for Alexa and Cortana cooperation in August, and Microsoft added a full-fledged Alexa app to the operating system a few months later.

With the next update to Windows 10, the software giant aims to improve the user experience.

Earlier this week, Microsoft reminded customers that official support for Windows 7 ends on January 14, 2020, even posting an official reminder page to encourage customers to hurry up and adopt Windows 10.

Either way, after these end-of-support dates, your Windows 10 phone will be unsafe to use, as Microsoft will no longer be keeping it updated with security patches to combat viruses and malware.

It seems as though Microsoft is now turning its attention to application support on iOS and Android, the latter of which is considered the company's go-to mobile OS.

Google Assistant now comes with a real-time translator for 27 languages
What's more, the Assistant will even auto-punctuate your messages now, so you don't have to dictate punctuation marks as well. Google is also adding a second option that will allow the Assistant to provide you with personal results from the lockscreen.

In fact, with Microsoft pulling the plug on Windows 10 Mobile on December 10 this year (2019), the Windows-maker is suggesting moving to something a little more popular. Microsoft did not reveal when it plans to end support for the tool.

The company previously announced Windows Phone's death back in 2017. 'You should be able to use it on Google Assistant, ' he said during the media event. Make the switch to either Apple's iPhone or Google's Android ecosystems, says Microsoft. It has yet to stick to a release cycle and gone through several names changs, but its biggest problem yet has been the straight-up lie in the so-called Windows 10 October 2018 Update's name. It sounds like the Microsoft Store will continue to function after the end of support date on December 10, but there's no guarantee as to how long that will last.

But as of now, it is clear that Windows 10 Mobile as a platform is dead.

The App Store may continue to work after end of support. Now the clients of Windows 10 devices have to make a smart selection among Android or iOS supported cell phones. Will anyone miss Windows 10 Mobile?

Interestingly, Microsoft has worked hard on cross-platform support for their leading products such as Microsoft Word and entire Office suite.
