Microsoft’s and Samsung’s partnership is a big deal. Let’s break it all down and see what we’ve got in store for the future.
Last week, Microsoft announced big news alongside Samsung; a partnership that will see the two companies work closely together on future products, starting with the Galaxy Note 10. This is a huge deal for Microsoft and a big step back into the mobile game. But this partnership isn’t just about mobile; it’s about Windows too.
Samsung has been happily bundling some of Microsoft’s Android apps on its phones for a couple of years now. It started with the Samsung Galaxy S8, but there was never any formal partnership behind it. Now that there’s an official public-facing partnership to contend with, both Microsoft and Samsung have taken this bundling of apps to a new level by introducing more Microsoft services that are preinstalled and going a step further by integrating some of those services with Samsung’s version of Android.
