Windows 10 now runs on 300 million active devices across the world


Redmond-based Microsoft has announced that its latest Windows OS – Windows 10 – now runs on 300 million active devices across the world.

Launched in July 2015, the OS is being used by people at home, schools, small businesses, large companies, and other organizations.

These people use some of the amazing features and apps the OS has to offer, such as Microsoft Edge, Microsoft’s modern browser, Cortana – which has helped to answer over 6 billion questions since launch – games, and apps such as Photos, Groove Music and Movies & TV.

Another important app on Windows 10 is the Windows Store, which now houses new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger.

UWP apps from Vine, Hulu, Netflix and Twitter and popular PC games including Rise of the Tomb Raider and Quantum Break, have all been updated to offer users an amazing experience.

All these features and apps have contributed immensely to the fast adoption of Windows 10. More new and exciting features are coming as the OS clocks 1 in July.

“We’re pleased to see Windows 10 become one of the largest online services in less than a year. Core to delivering our more personal computing vision, Windows 10 offers experiences that are familiar, safer and more secure, and more personal and productive – enabling innovative new experiences,” Microsoft stated on its blog.
