Following the AI trend, Microsoft also announced a new effort called AI for Accessibility. "Using our new SDK, Windows developers will soon be able to employ drones, AI and machine learning technologies to create intelligent flying robots that will save businesses time and money, and help make drone technology a mainstay in the workplace". The app will allow PC users access to their phone's contents, including messages, photos, and notifications, right on their Windows 10 desktop.

On Android, the Timeline feature will be integrated within the Microsoft Launcher app to support cross-device app launching. We're expanding this work to not only bring more Microsoft 365 services across platforms and into applications, but to better connect customers' existing PC experiences with their phones, helping to increase engagement for developers.
