Microsoft stop spamming Android users with notification tray ads
By Thom Holwerda on 2016-05-31 21:14:03

Remember the story about Microsoft spamming the Android notification tray with ads for applications I had already installed? BetaNews talked to Microsoft about this, the company first said this:

Our team is actively investigating the occurrences of these notifications.

However, after BetaNews pressed on, Microsoft changed its tune and said this a few days later:

Microsoft is deeply committed to ensuring that we maintain the best possible experience for our customers in addition to complying with all applicable policies. We have taken the action to turn off these notifications. This update will be reflected in the coming days.

Well, I guess I indirectly actually did something useful.
