Android and Windows devices can now exchange messages as App Services support arrives on Project Rome for Android

Project Rome

Microsoft announced Project Rome back in October last year and it empowers developers to create experiences that drive user engagement and are no longer constrained to a single device. These cross-device experiences follow you and break down barriers across all Windows devices.

While the capabilities or APIs were already shipped with the Anniversary Update and then the launch of Project Rome Android SDK, Microsoft is extending the support for Android devices to further enhance the communication with Windows devices by introducing App Services support.

Earlier, a user could only launch a URI from an Android device onto a Windows device. However, with the introduction of app services, you can easily send/receive messages between Android and Windows devices.

What are App Services?

In short, app services allow your app to provide services that can be interacted with from other applications. This enables an Android application to invoke an app service on a Windows application to perform tasks behind the scenes. This blog post is focused on how to use app services between Android to Windows devices. For a deeper look at app services on Windows, go here.
