Microsoft to reportedly unveil a dedicated app for its Modern accessories

Microsoft Surface Headphones 2 and corresponding dongle

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop 4, and alongside it a whole heap of its Modern accessories including the Surface Headphones 2+, the Modern USB Headset, the Modern Wireless Headset, Modern USB-C Speaker, and the Modern Webcam. You can read about these accessories in detail here. Most of these are Teams-certified and come with a dedicated Teams button as Microsoft designed these Modern products with the current work-from-home situation in mind. And it's also a subtle way to promote Teams.

A new report today suggests that the company could also be working to launch a new dedicated application designed to customize and control these Modern accessories. Below we have the leaked screenshots of what appears to be the home screen of the alleged upcoming Modern accessories app. (click to enlarge)

The new app will supposedly work with:

  • Modern USB Headset,
  • The Modern USB-C Speaker,
  • The Modern Wireless Headset,
  • The Modern Webcam, and
  • The USB Link

The report says that Microsoft is currently testing the app and its features internally and upon completion, it will be available for download via the Microsoft Store. However, it may be at least a while before we see it since the Modern accessories themselves aren't launching before June this year.
