According to news reports, Microsoft will launch a Cloud PC service in June or July that would let users access a remote Windows desktop and software like Office.
This will make it easy to access a virtual Windows 10 PC on any device, including smartphones and tablets.
A report indicates the company might offer a new way to experience its flagship Windows 10 on any device through the Azure-powered service.
But users have to pay a monthly fee to access a remote Windows 10 desktop along with software like MS Office.
Right now, Microsoft does offer Windows Virtual Desktop, but the new service will be a part of Microsoft’s 365 experience.
The new service, according to the report, could be beneficial for those who frequently switch between devices and want to access their PC on any mobile device.
Microsoft’s new “Cloud PC” service could allow users with Windows 10X to run Win32 apps. Windows 10X is Microsoft’s answer to Chrome OS, which is yet to launch.
The company hasn’t confirmed the existence of its rumoured “Cloud PC” yet. The new initiative, however, might be a better option than Chromebooks in workplaces. Not only one would get a secure and always updated system without having to rely on an underpowered machine.
