Microsoft has released a Windows Phone 8 app for Windows 8. This comes as Microsoft gears up for the Windows Phone 8 launch that will happen later tonight. The Windows Phone 8 basically replicates a lot of the functionality found in the Zune app, which has now been discontinued. The Windows Phone 8 app will act like a syncing client for Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Also Read - WhatsApp to discontinue support for some more devices this week, is yours one of them?
The app will let users sync music, videos, contacts and photos, things that one expects of a syncing app like iTunes for the iPhone. Notably, as the app is based on the Modern UI it will work on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. The app can be currently be downloaded from the Windows Store, but as of now one cannot do much with it considering there are no Windows Phone 8 devices in the market.
