Microsoft yesterday opened accessibility to Windows 365, which is the platform that allows users to stream Windows 10 (and, soon, Windows 11) to work and personal devices through the cloud.
The service is aimed at business users, especially those who have switched to a hybrid workforce during the pandemic or need remote access options. With the cloud setup, users can quickly stream the entire Windows experience, including all of their data and settings, from a personal PC, business, or phone.
Businesses can access the cloud-based setup of Windows 365 starting August 2 this year, after Microsoft officially unveiled it in July. Windows 365 Business and Enterprise Cloud plans start at $ 31 per user per month.
For this fee, you have access to a cloud PC setup with the equivalent of 4 GB of RAM, two processors, and 128 GB of storage. You can view a full service breakdown on the Windows 365 pricing page, which lists more business-ready packages and subscriptions.
Windows 365’s new setup seems like the perfect instant PC solution for the modern worker. By allowing business and personal users to quickly resume workloads, it is suitable for the hybrid work environments that many businesses now find themselves in due to the pandemic.
Going forward, Microsoft has given Windows a beta to test, and we’re looking at why Microsoft might be making things harder for Windows 11 than it currently needs.
