Microsoft's latest TV ad for Windows 8.1 highlights multitasking with Xbox Video and Flipboard apps

Microsoft has rolled out a new TV advertisement for the company’s Windows 8.1 operating system and this time the advertisement highlights multitasking. In the video, we are introduced to an unfortunate man who is on a long flight and happens to be stuck in-between two large people preventing him from having any arm space to do any work.

Fortunately, this man doesn’t need the five-star treatment in a flight when he has his trusty Windows 8.1 tablet with him. With this operating system, he can catch up on the latest news using the recently-released Flipboard app and watch movies using the Xbox Video app.

“Whether it’s catching up on the news with Flipboard, watching movies, or getting work done with Microsoft Office, Windows 2-in-1 PCs give you the best of work and play. The New Windows: One experience for everything in your life,” the video description reads.

We’ve embedded the video below for your viewing pleasure. Share your multi-tasking stories below.
