Windows 10: Powering the World with One Billion Monthly Active Devices - Brand Spur

SINGAPORE – Media
OutReach
 – 19 March
2020 – Microsoft today announced that over one
billion people have chosen Windows 10 across 200 countries resulting in more
than one billion active Windows 10 devices. Since its release in 2015, every new build of Windows 10 has seen
customer satisfaction improve through fixes, new capabilities and experiences for
customers to benefit from a secure, reliable platform.

With 100 percent of the
Fortune 500 now using Windows 10 devices, it has become a critical platform for
driving business transformation in the enterprise and beyond. In addition, one
in seven people, from developers, business professionals, students and families
are planning, creating, ideating, executing, and doing great things with
Windows 10. More companies are also transitioning from older operating systems
to Windows 10 as part of their commitment to running the business more
efficiently and securely, positioning themselves to offer better products,
services and solutions to their customers.

From one to one billion devices

“With Windows 10, our focus has always been to put the customer at the center,
to listen to feedback, and to have that feedback shape the development process.
One of the strongest examples of this customer focus is our Windows Insider Program
which now has over 17.8M Insiders in every country of the world,” said Yusuf
Mehdi, CVP Modern Life, Search and Devices, Microsoft
. “We have also
strived to make Windows an open, inclusive, and accessible platform that can
empower everyone to achieve their goals. Our Windows Accessibility team
focuses on human-centered design, a method where engineers and designers work
to deeply understand peoples’ needs, and then co-design and continuously
iterate on solutions directly with them”.

 

Users
can expect new Windows 10 features and security updates to be delivered faster,
with the duration evolving from a version every 3 years, to multiple versions
per year. The recent decoupling of the new Chromium-based Edge browser from
Windows 10 has also enabled the delivery of new builds to customers outside of
the normal Windows 10 release cadence — and to more versions of Windows.

Windows 10 is also the only operating system globally
that runs in over 80,000 models and configurations of laptops and 2-in-1s from
over 1,000 different manufacturers. The operating system also powers Windows Mixed
Reality, Microsoft HoloLens and the entire Xbox family of consoles, including
the latest Xbox
Series X
, which will be available later this year — transforming
the way people build, design, learn, play and experience the world around them.

The
operating system has also enabled new categories of device creation including
Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Hub 2S; and will power future devices such
as Surface Neo, a dual-screen device that will run Windows
10X
,
presenting users with unique experiences on multi-posture dual-screen PCs.

 

Windows is a diverse and powerful canvas that gives Microsoft’s
OEM partners the flexible tools they need to deliver innovation to the world. This
can be seen in their latest devices such as the Acer
ConceptD 700 workstation
, ASUS
ExpertBook B9
, XPS 13
from Dell
,
HP
Elite Dragonfly
,  Lenovo
Yoga Slim 7 
and
the Samsung
Galaxy Book Flex α
.

 

As a pioneer in seamless touch and
pen experiences, biometric log-in with Windows Hello, touch-to-dial apps like
Your Phone, to enabling Android users to connect their phone to their PC — the Windows innovation will
continue. Microsoft envisions Windows to be the most accessible operating
system, and though Azure cloud, users of Mac, iOS or even
Chromebooks will be able to enjoy the benefits of Windows.

 

“Reaching a billion people with Windows 10 is just the
beginning. We will invest in Windows not only within Windows 10 for PCs but
also across many other Windows editions, serving diverse customer needs
including Windows IoT, Windows 10 Teams edition for Surface Hub, Windows
Server, Windows Mixed Reality on HoloLens, Windows 10 in S mode, Windows 10X
and more.” said Mehdi.
