Windows Phone is the third leading mobile platform in the market today, although I must say that quite far in terms of numbers above their rivals. There seems to be a plan B that have qualified for the Microsoft operating system to work in the future with Android applications.
Microsoft has an effective commitment to its users in terms of closing the gap on different platforms in the number of applications on Windows Phone, being in these times of 527,000 which are available in the Windows Phone Store, you still have 340,000 the that are available for mobile devices. No doubt that when compared to the 1.3 million applications on Google Play or iTunes, they remain quite short.
One way in which Microsoft wants to narrow the gap with the other platforms is to give support to Android applications to run seamlessly on Windows 10, the next version of its mobile platform. It will be the way to create universal applications, an operating system that aims to bring together the worlds of smartphones and tablets, and even computers.
This is intended to attract new developers and create a user experience much more complete. Developers can see much open market by not having to create many versions of their applications, and to focus on Android, so that later the current Windows Phone users to enjoy their work. No official confirmation, but it seems to be one of the possibilities that Microsoft is plated.
