Microsoft planning to bring Android app support to Windows

| |

Well, yeah by reading the title of the post you must be thinking that we are drunk or something like that but it is true. According to The Verge, Microsoft is planning to bring Android app support to Windows and Windows Phone ecosystem. It has always been difficult for Microsoft to attract developers towards app development for Windows or Windows Phone OS. So, now Microsoft has considered another way to get apps to the end users. They are now planning to give support for Android apps to the Windows users. Now, the question arises that will Google permit to do so? Will this be the end for Android OS? Well, we don't have any idea how to answer these questions right now but time will surely give us the answers. Another question, is Microsoft doing right by allowing users to give access to Google Play Store, this wouldn't be the first time we've seen such a move in the mobile space. BlackBerry allows consumers to enjoy Android content on its own hardware. Then we have Nokia rumoured to be building and looking to push low-end hardware running forked Android. The Verge has also learnt that Intel has been pushing Microsoft to allow both Android and Windows to run on PCs. Well, as we think allowing Android apps on Windows is not the permanent solution for Microsoft. Microsoft seriously need to do something to attract developers, maybe they need to remove some of the restrictions from Windows OS.
As Microsoft just got their third CEO, we will be seeing some new changes in the Company's policies towards Windows. For now head towards comments section and let us know about this news. What will happen if Microsoft seriously bring support for Android apps.
