Redmond-based technology giant Microsoft is planning to roll out a massive Windows 8 app update, just in time for the debut of the upcoming Windows Blue, the first major upgrade for the current operating system.
According to Paul Thurrott of WinSuperSite
, Microsoft is apparently ready to update not one, but all Windows 8 Metro apps, but it’s not yet clear whether the company plans to release them now or wait until the next Patch Tuesday cycle in April.
A previous report indicated that the company wants to roll out several improvements for the built-in Windows 8 apps in order to prepare them for the release of Windows Blue, but Microsoft is yet to confirm this.
If all these reports are true, we may be much closer to the Windows Blue
release than we think, even though sources familiar with the matter said that Microsoft plans to release the first beta in June.
In the meantime, make sure you keep an eye on the Windows Store and on Softpedia to find out when these Windows 8 app updates go live.
