Windows 365 takes the PC OS to the cloud in August

Cloud PC on phones, tables and even Macs.

Windows 365 is a new cloud-based OS that will stream Windows to phones, tablets and even Macs.

Available to businesses from 2 August, the service basically works in the same way that Xbox Cloud Game Gaming does — if you have a strong, stable internet connection, you’ll be able to stream the OS.

“The ability to work whenever, however, and wherever it’s needed has become the new normal,” Microsoft’s Wangui McKelvey wrote in a blog post. “All employees want technology that is familiar, easy to use, and available across devices. And in the most complex cybersecurity environment we’ve ever seen, businesses need a solution that helps their employees collaborate, share, and create while also keeping their data safe and secure.”

Windows 365 will initially stream Windows 10, but will transition over to Windows 11 when available.

Pricing hasn’t been made available as yet, but businesses will need to have Azure Active Directory, Microsoft accounts and appropriate Windows 365 Business or Enterprise licensing to access the service.

Interested parties can head to Windows365.com from 2 August to sign-up or to receive more information.
