Microsoft WiFi allows users to pay for access of public WiFi hotspots all around the world, and this service is now integrated in the new Windows 10 build 10158. Microsoft WiFi is relatively new service and it allows users to pay for using WiFi hotspots for a specified time, instead of paying a monthly price. As we know for now, you can pay for WiFi services using the same payment method as used for purchases in Windows Store. Also, for using this app, you can use the same account you’re using for accessing the App Store.

Microsoft has its own public WiFi hotspots in public places all over the world, and you can now access these hotspots by paying Microsoft for using them. If you’re near to the hotspot, you can easily access it through Windows Store by clicking on “Buy Wifi From Windows Store.” We have to notice that this service is similar to Skype WiFi, which is also owned by Microsoft.

Introduction of Microsoft WiFi is one of the latest additions to Windows 10 build 1058, and it shows us that still has some features to introduce until the final release on July 29th. Also, a lot of experts are predicting that build 1058 is going to be the last Windows Insider Program build, because we have less than a month until the release of Windows 10.

What do you think about the addition of Microsoft WiFi? Are you going to use it on trips, or you prefer using mobile data while you’re away from home?
