Microsoft is reportedly working on launching its “Movies & TV” app — only available on Windows-based platforms like Windows 10 PC, Xbox and Windows 10 Mobile — on Android and iOS-based platforms.

According to a report in Windows Central late on Thursday, “Microsoft is building these apps to give consumers more of a reason to buy content in the Microsoft Store”.

“Lots of people buy digital movies and TV content, and Microsoft has a huge store that a lot of people seemingly ignore or don’t know about because there is no mobile companion app for their phone,” the report added.

Microsoft was yet to comment on the report.

In 2017, Microsoft shut down its Groove Music service after announcing a partnership with the music streaming platform Spotify.

The company requested its customers to transfer everything they had saved, downloaded and playlists they had created on Groove to Spotify, media reported.

But the company did not touch the “Movies & TV” app then. (IANS)

Twitter is rolling out an update for iOS users in the US where they can see tweets they care about the most in the search tab via new “sections”.

Currently, the Twitter search tab in the iOS app offers a vertically scrolling list of trending topics.

The users can now move horizontally to view the top news and tweets.

“We added sections so it’s easier for you to see the Tweets you care about the most, starting today in the US,” the company tweeted late on Wednesday.

Twitter has also considering an edit functionality.

Its CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is in India this week, said on November 12 that the micro-blogging platform has been considering edit button for quite some time but did not reveal any specific timeline.

“A lot of people want the edit button because they want to quickly fix a mistake they made. Like a misspelling or tweeting the wrong URL. That’s a lot more achievable than allowing people to edit any tweet all the way back in time,” Dorsey told the gathering at IIT-Delhi. (IANS)
