[Leak] People Sense App by Microsoft brings Location Sharing to Windows Phone



Microsoft is working hard to make Windows on Phones an even better experience day and night. They have showed us a lot at their Event in January what the Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones will bring or better in which direction Microsoft is going with the operating system. Now with the first Build of the Technical Preview for Phones released we can say even more about it.
Still there is a huge list of Apps which haven’t been included yet, new Outlook App, new Calendar App, new Office Suite, just to mention a few and it seems that there are coming a whole lot more with the final version of Windows 10 for Phones. The newest addition to this is the People Sense App which has been showcased by Microsoft Place in a short Hands On Video.

Currently running under the Codename Buddy Aware, with the People Sense App for Windows Phone it will be possible to share your location with a group of people you choose. Furthermore Microsoft will allow third party app developers to integrate their apps in the People Sense App so that that it is possible for example to directly open HERE Drive as it is demonstrated in the video to get the right way to the person you want to get to.


These days there were coming bad news from Microsoft for some Windows Phone Users, the Rooms feature will be discontinued in March. Well I first thought Microsoft will replace the Rooms with something from Skype since they are planning to deeply integrate Skype in the Messaging app. However I may be wrong as it seems that the People Sense App will be the new Rooms for Windows 10. Unfortunately there was not any date or anything when we can see this People Sense but maybe as soon as with the next Build of Windows 10 for Phones, we will see.
Let me know your opinion on the leaked People Sense app for Windows Phone below in comments.
