Microsoft has introduced a new “Cloud PC” service where users can stream a Windows device anywhere.
Windows 365 works just like streaming games, where the work is done in one data center and transmitted remotely to another device.
In short, any device, including tablets and Macs, can transmit a full Windows desktop computer.
Initially this service is being sold to businesses as many companies are moving towards work from home. Microsoft says any application or user configuration in Windows will be displayed from any device.

The service debuts in August for businesses of all sizes said Microsoft. Initially only Windows 10 will be streamed but also the Windows 11 successor will be available in the new service once launched.
It is not known when a similar product will come for individual users however we remind Microsoft that it is moving towards a subscription model for all services.
These subscription services are being extended everywhere from Office 365 to the Xbox Game Pass, and the recent move of a cloud operating system is in line with the company vision. / PCWorld Albanian
