Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is heightening its drive to have more developers making universal applications for Windows 10.
The software giant has released tools today that will enable developers to start putting together applications for the Windows 10 Universal App platform.
Universal apps will work on Windows 10 devices in the future. This means that these apps may run on standard desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, or the Xbox – the Redmond, Washington-based giant’s gaming console – as long as these machines run Windows 10 code.
Apart from the just-released tools, the company is also putting sample code for universal apps front and center. The sample tools and sample code will be available for Windows Insider Program members who are running the latest build of the soon-to-be-launched Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) operating system, the latest Visual Studio 2015 CTP6 software and Windows 10 SDK tools.
There has been a lot going on at Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) when it comes to Windows 10. Recently, the tech veteran was reported to have changed the way Windows Update handles updates. Starting with the next-generation operating system from Microsoft, peer-to-peer update rollouts will be normal.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is also having users of other operating systems on mobile devices, such as Xiaomi Mi 4 users, test drive running Windows 10 on their devices.
Also recently, the company made headlines for seemingly saying that it will upgrade Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines in China to Windows 10 regardless whether these machines have genuine licenses or not. The company later retracted what one of its executives said.
It isn’t all good news, however, as a recent report pointed to the possibility that Windows 10 may stop users from running other operating systems on their machines, depending on a choice hardware makers make.
