Microsoft CEO proudly displays software on iOS and Android
Inspire is a conference for Microsoft partners held once a year. It was held in the past week and during the conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella took time out to display the company's apps running on both iOS as well as Android. It is no secret that Microsoft has given up on its own line of mobile devices and switched focus to its software. Many Windows 10 Mobile fans have opted for Android and found some level of comfort in the slew of options available from Microsoft in the Google Play Store. Of course, there are options on iOS as well, albeit with less flexibility than what Android offers third-party developers. 

CEO Satya Nadella knows this...

Which is why he took time out to proudly display the apps his teams have been developing for these two platforms. The head of Microsoft called both platforms an, "Endpoint for Microsoft 365" and showed the variety of ways a user can replace default apps with Microsoft offerings. Some of the apps he detailed were Edge, Launcher, Outlook, LinkedIn, Teams and Yammer. Most believe the Android device was one of Samsung's recent flagships, which is to be expected since Microsoft has been selling these pre-loaded with its own software for some time now.

it is unlikely they would implement that change. They are appealing to the Android fan base while pushing their software integration at this point. It is sad since Metro was my favorite style but Windows Mobile just didnt make it

When is Microsoft going to update it's Microsoft Launcher to have an optional layout that brings in Live Tiles again? The Metro interface is actually pretty kick ass, and needs to live on. I already use Square Home 2 Launcher and that's pretty cool, and Launcher 10 is just ok imo. But an official Metro Launcher from Microsoft would be excellent. That or Microsoft needs to accuhire the Square Home 2 guys.

Metro UI is an acquired taste, the same reason why Windows 10 returned it's Start menu.
