Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8.1, released today as a developer’s preview, offers limited support for Apple’s Passbook passes.
At this point, we don’t know if this is Microsoft operating independently, or if they have an agreement with the Cupertino firm to convert the data to its Microsoft Wallet. Reports say the importing seems to work well.
Passbook debuted in 2012 as part of iOS 6. The app acts as a digital wallet, and allows companies to store loyalty cards, gift cards, coupons, boarding passes, and more in the app.
