Microsoft has launched a cloud-powered mobile app that lets employees keep smartphones at home.
The new app is called Spark and can be used on iOS, Android and Windows 10, the company announced on Thursday.
Microsoft said Spark is designed to be a companion to its Office 365 app for employees to access files, documents, and more.
The Spark app is available in the App Store and Google Play.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Spark helps employees stay connected with colleagues, manage their calendar, access business and social media accounts, and access the latest news from social media.
“With Spark, you can be connected to your colleagues wherever you are, from your smartphone or tablet to your PC, laptop or desktop, and you can have full access to all the things you love about your career, including all the great apps, resources, and services that help you do it better,” Nadell said in a statement.
Microsoft has partnered with several companies, including Microsoft Research, Microsoft Ventures and The Cloud.
Microsoft also announced an open beta of Spark on Friday.
Spark will be available to employees and the public on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, Microsoft said.
The app will have a free trial and a paid version.
