Microsoft has today announced that Windows 10 has surpassed 800 million monthly active devices half a year after surpassing 700 million in September last year. 800 million devices is very impressive, but it's nowhere near close to Microsoft's original goal of one billion Windows 10 devices in three years, which it missed last year.
Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Modern Life & Devices, Yusef Mehdi also says that Windows 10 has the highest satisfaction rate of any version of Windows ever, which is very impressive considering the last couple of Windows 10 feature updates have launched with a plethora of issues. Microsoft has been working hard to improve the overall reliability of Windows 10 this year, which should improve things for users.
Now that we've reached 800 million, it'll be interesting to see how long it takes to reach Microsoft's one billion goal. Will Windows 7's end of support increase the rate of new Windows 10 devices? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on this? Let us know.
