Microsoft continues towards 1 billion Windows 10 devices as a new report from WinBeta claims that 200 million users have now upgraded to Windows 10.
Despite some initial hiccups at launch, a new report from WinBeta now claims that Windows 10 has surpassed over 200 million installs thus far. Going by the report, it implies that operating system’s adoption rate has reached about 40 million new devices every month. Now that pretty impressive, but not surprising given Microsoft’s approach to push Windows 10 as a free upgrade for users who are on an older version of Windows.
Microsoft officially announced back in October that Windows 10 has surpassed 110 million installs, which is an impressive feat in itself within three months since its release. The Windows maker has a target of 1 billion devices running Windows 10 in three years, and if the current trend continues that figure won’t be far behind.
Meanwhile, the company is expected to roll out the next major update as Insider Preview for Windows 10 early in January, which should further increase its user base, as many users prefer to get the updated versions before they wish to upgrade. Codenamed ‘Redstone’ and deemed to be a massive update, it is expected significantly enhance the overall Windows 10 experience. It is also likely to include the much-awaited extensions support for the latest Edge browser, which earlier scheduled for a rollout with the November update.
Though what Windows fans would be really looking forward to is the Continuum feature for computers, which essentially allows users to hook up their PCs with their smartphones, very similar to the OS X Continuity like features offered by the Cupertino giant – Apple.
