In what can only be described as an interesting turn of events for the Android ecosystem, Cyanogen today is reporting that they will be partnering with Microsoft to bring and integrate the tech giants many apps and services right into Cyanogen OS. This would include services like Bing, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook and Microsoft Office. What this means exactly is not yet known, but hopefully Cyanogen OS will remain true to its Android roots and not steer towards becoming another version of Windows.
While it’s no secret that Cyanogen and Google have had a strained relationship over the years, it is still odd to see Microsoft directly investing in one of its competitors. Who knows, maybe it will pay off for everyone in the end. For now, we can only sit back and ponder. For more information regarding the partnership, you can follow the link below.
