    Hey guys,

    I have been a Windows Phone user for about 3 years now, getting rather tired of it and not too sure I like the direction Microsoft is taking. I was wondering if you could assist me in easing my mind about a few things. I am heavily tied to the Microsoft ecosystem, I would like to know if switching to android is going to impact my ability to use MS services. The services that I absolutely require are:

    PERSONAL:
    - Xbox Music
    - OneDrive
    - Outlook

    BUISNESS:
    - Office 365 account syncing
    - SharePoint
    - OneDrive for Business
    - Lync 2013

    Thanks, I appreciate it!

    Offhand, I don't know myself. Android has several MS apps:
    Office Mobile: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...fice.officehub
    Outlook: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.outlook.Z7
    One Drive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...osoft.skydrive
    Lync 2013: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....office.lync15
    XBox Music: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...soft.xboxmusic

    I am not heavily into the MS ecosystem, so i am not sure how well any of these apps work.

    Another option would be to see how well you can transfer the data from MS programs to Google's.

    Thank you for the response. I would love to stay within the Microsoft ecosystem if possible but i'm aware that I may need to move outside into Googles a bit. I wasnt aware I could browse the Play store just in a web browser so I will have to take a look to see what's available. I would love opinions on how viable this is from someone who uses MS within Android.

    I used to use Hotmail on my devices. It worked, but I didn't use much more than that.
    I don't know if this is true on MS, but in Play, if you are signed in with the same gmail, you can browse apps on a desktop and install them from there too.
