Cyanogen has officially announced partnership with Microsoft
Cyanogen, the company behind the open source operating system Cyanogen OS (based on Android), has announced an agreement with Microsoft that will lead to the integration into the platform of various services from the makers of Windows.
We are talking about apps from different categories: productivity, communication, system tools and cloud services for data storage. Under the partnership, Microsoft will create a native integration with Cyanogen OS, which will provide the user experience of a new kind. Under the agreement fall Bing, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook and Microsoft Office, which will probably replace alternatives from Google.
This is another step in the strategy of Satya Nadella to extend the coverage of proprietary tools Microsoft other mobile operating systems.
Some time ago we heard that the company is interested in investing in Cyanogen, and although later it became clear that this did not happen, both companies obviously found another path to partnership. Recently Cyanogen has managed to attract $ 80 million from investors such as Twitter and Qualcomm.
