Did Microsoft just Rickroll business customers with an AppSource site tailored to finding business apps?

Persistent Microsoft leaker WalkingCat tweeted out a photo of an upcoming Microsoft website, AppSource. The service is designed to help businesses find apps that they need to assist their operations – for example, they can choose to view all apps associated with “customer service.”


When browsing the website, we decided to press the “How it works” button, expecting a helpful modal with some information on how to use AppSource, but instead we were greeted with a rather familiar face and voice…

That’s right. Good ol’ Rick Astley – and yes, Microsoft did successfully Rickroll us. Let’s not speak of this day again.

AppSource assists businesses in finding apps that assist in the everyday running of their business, with solutions tailored to specific teams and roles. Apps are available across different Microsoft platforms, such as Azure, and are published by a wide-range of different companies. It is not clear whether businesses are currently using this service, or whether it’s something that Microsoft is still working to deliver. However, it can’t be too good for PR if the company is dishing out Rick Roll’s to corporate customers.
