Microsoft Updates Windows 8 Apps

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) has made an update available for users of its Windows 8 operating system that is designed to improve the functionality of Microsoft's Mail, Calendar, and People features.

According to a Monday blog post from Brandon LeBlanc, a Microsoft communications manager, the new apps are "designed to manage communication seamlessly on Windows PCs and tablets across multiple accounts --, Exchange, and others."

The update will allow Windows 8 users with multiple email accounts, work and personal, for example, to toggle between them. As with the Microsoft Mail update, the new download improves the management of both personal and business calendars, in addition to enhancing its appearance.

The update also includes the capability to manage multiple connections using the Microsoft People app. According to the company, this will increase the ease with which users stay connected with Skype, Facebook, Twitter, and Outlook contacts, both personal and business.
