Microsoft announced that it has officially acquired the next-generation calendar app for iOS and Android, Sunrise.
“We are making this acquisition because we believe a reinvention in the way people use calendars on mobile devices is long overdue. Our goal is to better help people manage and make the most of their time in a mobile-first, cloud-first world,” said Rajesh Jha, Corporate Vice President, Outlook and Office 365.
The acquisition of the Sunrise app will pave Microsoft’s journey to the future of calendaring. The calendar features will be connected with different services and it will feature better view of days, weeks, and months ahead. Though it has been acquired by Microsoft, Sunrise app will still be available for free in Google Play and App Store.
“Both Sunrise and Microsoft share this vision to make your life a little easier by focusing on time, design, and building experiences that delight you everyday. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on lately,” shares Pierre Valade, Sunrise CEO.
