Windows 8 will be here in just over three weeks time, but the Redmond-based company have announced that they're updating most of the built-in Metro-style apps that come with Windows 8.




This will include SkyDrive, Mail, Calendar, People, Photos, Bing, Maps, News, Weather, Travel, Video, Music, Games, and Finance. Bing's update will arrive tomorrow and will include better search results for local content, it will also include Bing rewards integration and the feature to use the file picker to "select an image from Bing to use on your lock screen or in your other apps".


The SkyDrive update will let users search within SkyDrive itself, with the ability to rename and move files and folders. The Mail update will receive improved IMAP support, as well as the ability to accept or decline invitations in e-mails.
