The Microsoft Band hits the headlines today as it gets a decent update with several welcomed features, the largest change being the keyboard. In this quick video impression, we will look at the messaging functionality, which allows you to reply to text messages in a quick and more detailed manner, than the pre-defined messages that it had prior to this update. I personally think this feature works really well, and opens up new paths for developers to take advantage of going down the road.
