Fitbit's updated its Windows app for Windows 10. The app features all-new Live Tiles, pushes notifications to the Action Center, and supports Cortana voice commands. Saying things like "Fitbit, I ate chicken for dinner" or "Fitbit, I went for a three-mile run" will see Cortana automatically logging that activity. The app supports the entire Fitbit range, including its smart scale, and, as it's a universal app, it'll also eventually play nicely with other Windows 10 platforms. That means it'll come to both Windows 10 phones and -- for the first time -- the Xbox One console later this year.

Although third-party support for Microsoft's mobile platforms has been limited at best, Fitbit has always worked to ensure its devices work with Windows. Apps are already available for Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows RT. You'll have to wait a little for the mobile and console versions, but you can check out Fitbit's new app at the Windows Store now.
