The report points out that Microsoft wants more users to buy the content that it is offering on the Microsoft Store. The only reason that can happen is if users have the ability to access the purchased content on the device or platform of their choice. The report added that a major chunk of users seems to ignore the content offered on Microsoft Store because of lack of companion apps on Android and iOS. It also poses a problem for people who end up buying content from Microsoft Store because of the same reason. Also Read - How to change Google Assistant’s voice on your phone

The company is continuously adding features to the Microsoft Launcher so that it allows users to seamlessly transition from your Windows 10-powered laptop or desktop to Android and iOS and continue with whatever they were working on.
The report also added that Microsoft is also likely to join Movies Anywhere program that allows users to watch their purchased content from a different digital store from the one they originally purchased the movie on. For example, if a user purchased a movie on Google Play with the help of Movies Anywhere then they can stream the movie with iTunes on any Apple device.
