Microsoft has updated the Windows Launcher on Android with the new Timeline feature from Windows 10. At the moment, this option seemingly shares the same limitations as it does on the PC. But that should change as more developers get on board with integrating cross platform apps.
The idea is that users will be able to access their Timeline from both mobile and PC. Allowing them to pick up and continue working on the same app from anywhere.
iOS and Mac users aren’t left out either, as the Timeline can be accessed from Microsoft’s Edge browser. We’re not sure about the number of Apple users who actually use Edge, but this looks more like bridging a gap for the sake of completion. Cross platform features are not necessarily a bad thing.
PC users will have to install the Windows 10 April 2018 update is order to start using Timeline on their PCs, and then install the Windows Launcher on Android to get it on mobile.
There aren’t many apps on either of these platforms at the moment, as they require UWPs. This should change over time, since this year’s Build conference is still pushing developers in that direction.
