Windows 10 Apps Showed off in an Xbox One Demo by Microsoft
After having witnessed the aftershocks of a haphazard growth which lacked in uniformity across platforms (unlike Apple), Microsoft is now taking major leaps towards their vision of One Windows.
That is going to bring us a totally different experience with our gadgets, but right now they are showing off one small step towards that in the form of universal Windows 10 apps that run on Xbox One.
Couple of hours ago at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, they took to the stage with a demonstration featuring one such app.
Kevin Gallo the technical lead for Windows universal apps at Microsoft had with him a demo app that was running smoothly on phones, PC as well as Xbox One.
This is really just one gesture from the Redmond based giant that the future is going to bring forth adaptive applications and on top of that, they are going to give us the interfaces that are going to support them.
Also, it comes in line with changes in their opinions about letting anyone develop apps for the Xbox One. We might not know when that will happen, and we also don’t know what apps will be coming our way, but it could be happening soon in the future.
The Build Conference is April is going to be an event to watch out for in this regard because that is where the plans will be relayed by Microsoft before the developers start making the apps in, may be, the summer.
As far as Windows 10 is concerned, we are going to get hosted web apps too which means the transition from websites to apps is going to get another nudge forward.
Long story short, 2015 is going to be a whole lot of fun!
