The popular developer’s ROMs for Android devices Cyanogen Inc. just confirmed what had been rumored since early this year: its Alliance with Microsoft. To accomplish without Google Android are associated with the Redmond company to provide applications and services your operating system Cyanogen OS.
With this important agreement future versions of Cyanogen OS (not to be confused with CyanogenMod) come standard with some Microsoft services, such as Bing, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook and Microsoft Office applications that will come to replace completely to Google services which already would not come in this fork of Android.
Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen, is very pleased to have reached this agreement that will offer its customers the best experience of Microsoft in Android devices that are committed by the version of Cyanogen OS. Peggy Johnson, Executive Vice President of Microsoft, also said the same thing, who are delighted that users of Cyanogen soon enjoy series with its services.
Cyanogen: Goodbye Google, Hello Microsoft
We see this agreement as Cyanogen It consigned to market Android devices “with Microsoft”. Now you need to see how the host for part of manufacturers and consumers will be this fork of Android which assumes there will be no trace of the services of Google or Google Play, so Cyanogen will have to count on the support of a good alternative app store. Can you compete a Cyanogen with Microsoft against Android and its Google Play?
