Windows 365 has debuted to offer an all-new way to access a full-fledged Windows operating system from anywhere – using a desktop, laptop, or even a mobile device. Microsoft announced the debut of Windows 365 at its partner-focused virtual conference Inspire 2021 on Wednesday. Windows 365 is designed to offer a complete computing experience through a native app or Web browser on any device that has an active Internet connection.

With Windows 365, Microsoft aims to offer an experience that looks, feels, and has the security of a traditional Windows PC but can be accessed through a native app or a Web browser. It allows users to access full Windows 10 (or Windows 11, once it will be available) directly from an app or using the Web browser. Users will also get access to their apps, tools, data, and settings from the cloud that they would want on their PC.

In addition to offering remote access, Windows 365 is touted to be designed to address some of today’s security challenges using a Zero Trust architecture. The service comes with multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify login or access attempts to the cloud PC using an integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory.

Microsoft said that Windows 365 would be generally available to organizations of all sizes starting August 2. It will be accessible through any device including a Mac, iPad, Linux, and even an Android phone. There will be two cloud PC configurations – Windows 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise. Pricing details are yet to be announced.
