Microsoft has been trying their best to offer the best possible features to its mobile platform the Windows Phone which its recently acquired smartphone arm Nokia has been using since ages in its Lumia series.
However, there are still many things that has not enabled the Windows phone devices to take charge of the market. So far, according to the Q1 report from research firm IDC, Nokia has scored 4% of the market share in India, which is still better than the company's previous record.
But Microsoft is apparently trying to bring more likable features to the Windows Phone platform to contest against rival platforms like Android and iPhone. Recently, Microsoft's plans to expand the availability of Bing services on Windows Phone to additional markets was rumored and now the Redmond-based company is apparently looking to add another missing feature to Windows Phone ecosystem and that support for printing. This is one important feature that Windows Phone was missing out on.
Obviously, Microsoft has not formally said that until now but the information was in fact lying in the job application on Microsoft Careers. According to this post, Microsoft is looking to hire people that would work on a printing solution.
It reads, "Our team aims to keep Windows the best platform for printer ISVs and IHVs and to design and build the new platforms that will light up these new scenarios. Our team will develop for Windows client, Windows server, phone, tablet, Xbox, and cloud scenarios."
This particular line, "Experience with developing for Windows Phone, working with ISV or IHV partners, or designing platforms and APIs is a plus." is where the core idea about the printing lies.
If Windows Phone devices will get this feature soon, surely, it will achieve more numbers in following quarterly reports.
