Microsoft has already been tinkering with the MOD platform and created a malt that allows users to use Skype directly from the Cyanogen Android dialler. Microsoft has also created a way to control Cortana to take voice-activated selfies and provides a new frontier of for Android developers a new direction for Cyanogen opening a wealth of new applications and possibilities.
