Earlier this month Microsoft said that it is going to release a remote desktop app for both iOS and Android. It did indeed, the Microsoft remote desktop app for iOS and Android has been released and is now available for download. The app lets users control their Windows PC through their tablet or smartphone. Many wondered why Microsoft hadn’t released the app for its own mobile platform, Windows Phone. The company has confirmed that it is working on an app for its own platform as well.
A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed to TNW that the company is working on “a version of the app for Windows Phone,” though a release timeframe has not been provided. The spokesperson has said that the timeframe will be shared at a later point in time. The apps for iOS and Android allow users to access remote resources and more through a Remote Desktop Gateway, connect securely to all apps and data on a local machine through Network Layer Authentication technology and manage all remote connections through a connection center. The Windows Phone remote desktop app will presumably have the same functions as well, when it is ultimately released. Hopefully Microsoft will reveal when we can expect the app to drop, soon.
