Microsoft has confirmed that it is developing a File Manager system for Windows Phone 8.1.
Windows Phone chief Joe Belfiore announced the app during a Reddit Q&A session, and has since posted images of it online.
“We are doing a File Manager for Windows Phone 8.1! I know a lot of you are looking for this,” Belfiore wrote on the social news network.
“In fact, I’ve been running a build of it on two of my phones for the last week or so and it’s getting to pretty good shape.”
The introduction of a dedicated File Manager app on Windows Phone 8.1 would give the service a distinct advantage over iOS and Android, which do not come with pre-loaded filing systems.
Microsoft is aiming to release the Windows Phone 8.1 File Manager app by the end of May.
