Microsoft has decided to add a set of ads to its applications that will appear within the participation lists in Microsoft applications installed on Android phones.

The site pointed out Android Police that Microsoft’s applications on smartphones will add additional options in the menus that appear when you interact with any new file. Users will see icons of other Microsoft applications not loaded on the phone to invite users to download them.

The US has introduced many different Microsoft applications for the new update experience, which appeared in the list when one of the images was posted to Microsoft Download One Drive, and after clicking on the icon of the application was directed to Google Play Store in order to install the application that was announced.

It is not expected that such advertisements will be a nuisance to users because most users of Microsoft applications are likely to have the rest of the applications, so they will have regular icons while opening menus.

Critics point out that Microsoft will set a bad precedent, because if all other applications follow it, the lists of apps installed on Android will be full of ads, causing inconvenience to many users.
