A few months ago there were rumors that Microsoft will invest in Cyanogen Inc. Today Cyanogen is reporting that they will be partnering with Microsoft to bring and integrate apps and services into Cyanogen OS.
Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook and Microsoft Office will be integrated natively into Cyanogen OS and distributed on devices that support it. Microsoft will be assisting with the integration into the custom Android OS.
What this means exactly is not yet known, but lets hope Cyanogen OS will stick true to its Android roots and not decide to becoming another version of Windows.
This comes just after unconfirmed reports claim Microsoft will accept lower royalties from Android manufacturers if they pre-install the company’s services.
