remains, for the moment, the godsend for Android modders, Cyanogen OS—
which first became widely known on the original OnePlus One—is becoming more and more integrated with a variety of Microsoft services.
It started back in April of 2015, when Cyanogen, Inc. announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft
"Under the partnership, Cyanogen will integrate and distribute Microsoft’s consumer apps and services across core categories, including productivity, messaging, utilities, and cloud-based services. As part of this collaboration, Microsoft will create native integrations on Cyanogen OS, enabling a powerful new class of experiences."
In February of this year, Cyanogen announced their MOD platform
—nothing to do whatsoever with the open source CyanogenMod, but instead a means for developers to hook their wares into Cyanogen OS. Now, a new version of CM OS has just been released, and Microsoft products and services are all over it.
