At F8 2016, Facebook announced that Microsoft is bringing React Native to the Windows ecosystem, giving developers the potential to build React Native on Windows devices such as PCs, phones, and Xboxes.

Microsoft will also provide open source tools and services - such as a React Native extension for Visual Studio Code and the CodePush service - to help developers create React Native apps on the Universal Windows platform.

Eric Rozell from Microsoft has written a blog post describing how they brought the F8 App to Windows 10 Mobile.
