Microsoft expands App Assure to bring better compatibility to Snapdragon PCs

“Microsoft’s App Assure with FastTrack program is a service designed to help customers, developers, and independent software vendors address application compatibility issues, at no additional cost for qualifying customers,”  Qualcomm writes in a statement. “A focus of the program will be to engage vendors to deliver compatibility of Windows 10 apps on Snapdragon compute platforms so that users working anywhere can confidently use Windows 10 apps on Snapdragon-powered devices.”

While Qualcomm hasn’t shared more details on what the program will specifically do, Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay had earlier explained that the program would see the company’s engineers engage with developers to get their apps to work across all of Windows.

Panos had teased this program expansion when Qualcomm first introduced the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 earlier this month. He also said that ensuring compatibility was a key priority for the company, which was “putting a lot of energy into this.”
