Microsoft is rumoured to launch its Movies & TV app on iOS and Android to widen its consumer base.

At the moment, the app is only available on Microsoft apps like Windows 10, Xbox and PC.

According to Windows Central the addition of this app to iOS and Android is to help consumers buy content when it isn’t available on streaming services like Netflix.

When this app becomes available on those operating systems it will go head-to-head with Google Play and iTunes, a daring feat within itself.

Microsoft is reportedly working on a new smart speaker with Cortana to try and keep itself relevant with the tech giants like Apple, Google and Amazon.

There has been no allotted time given to when the app will be available so watch this space.
