Microsoft Says Metro Apps Will Be Coming to Desktop
Microsoft has had a busy session recently with the release of the latest Windows Phone 8.1. And while the new platform is yet to hit all Windows Phone running devices, it seems like the company is already back in news, and this time for its own Metro apps.
According to reports, in a recent interview with Microsoft's Executive Vice President of operating systems, Terry Myerson, it was revealed that Microsoft is planning to bring over Metro apps to dektop since "it's the core of Windows."
Speaking to ZDNet about Microsoft's plans, Myerson said that improving the desktop is a priority for the software giant in the new Windows 8.1 Update since it continues to be the most familiar working environment for millions of users around the world.
"We actually value using the desktop. I feel highly productive using it. It's very familiar to me. We plan -- (as) we talked about at the Build conference -- to bring modern apps to the desktop. We are going to have machines that have a great desktop experience," Myerson said.
Apart from that, the company executive also admitted that the desktop is helpful for the traditional PC and so the company will continue to focus on the touch experience that's currently offered to tablet and smartphone buyers.
"It (the desktop) is also not the right experience for a phone or a tablet. And so how the Windows experience spans these form factors and is familiar across them -- that's what we need to deliver if we're going to delight people in the whole ecosystem. The desktop is part of our future. It's absolutely core to Windows," Myerson continued.
