The deeper integration between Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile was one of the first announcement made by Microsoft while they released their new(then) Operating System, Windows 10. Unfortunately majority of the population uses Android/iOS and day by day its increasing as the Windows fan boys and girls are also finding reasons to switch the rival OS.
Now the company has announced ‘Microsoft Graph,’ a service that aims to integrate your PC and mobile work flows seamlessly. Last year’s Windows 10 Anniversary Update added Android notification mirroring, if you had the Cortana app installed. Microsoft Graph is working on making that feature more concrete.
For example, Microsoft showed someone using the Windows 10 News app reading an article, but had to leave for an appointment, so they turned off their laptop and started using their iPhone. A few moments later, Cortana sent a notification with a link the article they had open, for later reading.
Another feature that implements Microsoft Graph is ‘Timeline’ . It shows all you have been working on across your device(s) . For example, if i am working on an excel document in my Windows Laptop and i left it undone and leave for some work, i can resume it back on my Android Device by using Timeline.
Now finally, clipboard can be synced across all the devices using Microsoft Graph.
Developers will be able to integrate Microsoft Graph into their own apps (on both desktop and mobile) once the public API is available.
I hope to see some productive use of this feature in first party as well as third party apps.
