10 days ago Microsoft has release Visual Studio 2013 update 2.  This update includes bug fixes as well as new features and customer feedbacks. Following are some new capabilities included in this updates.

Universal Apps:

With this release you now build Universal Apps that can run on Windows 8.1 and Windows phone 8.1 while sharing code and assets through shared projects.

There are two types of app available 1) Blank app as universal Project and Hub application for that. So now if you already developed the windows phone 8.1 app and want to create same app with windows 8.1 then you can do that very easily Add windows 8.1 and same way you can add windows phone 8.1 if you have already developed windows 8.1 via Add windows phone 8.1.
