Satya Nadella: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella invites Apple to be a part of Windows 11

Microsoft unpacked the latest version of Windows during an online event yesterday. While Windows 11 has a host of new features, one that caught the eye of android apps runs on Windows. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella spoke more about Windows 11 in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
Nadella was asked in the interview whether Microsoft would integrate its software and services with the iPhone. Nadella said: “We’d like to make it work better, we’re doing everything we can. Like anything Apple wants to do with Windows, rather iTunes, iMessage or whatever, we welcome that.” He also said Microsoft wants to make sure “our software works great on Apple devices.”
Microsoft has partnered with Amazon‘s app Store, which allows Android apps to run and download on Windows 11. Nadella also emphasized that all apps are welcome to join on Windows 11. “We have the ability to have multiple marketplaces. We want to have a great marketplace, but we also welcome other marketplaces.”
During the online event, Nadella also took a ‘spit’ at Apple. Apple is known for having a rather closed ecosystem, and Microsoft’s CEO said, “Today the world needs a more open platform, one that allows apps to become a platform in their own right.” It seemed that Nadella was hinting at Apple.
Apple has been known to get a 30% discount on apps with in-app purchases or subscriptions. Microsoft has said it will not charge developers on Windows 11 and that they will be free to use any payment system they want.
