Microsoft is working hard to fully integrate SIM data into Windows 10. The company already announced that the Microsoft Store would soon include LTE data plans for eSIM PCs. The Redmond giant has now taken another step forward towards using SIM data on Windows 10 computers and added a brand new feature that lets you know how much SIM data you used while roaming.

So, if your device has a SIM, navigate to Data Usage Settings and you’ll see how much data you are using. The roaming usage information appears immediately after you start using roaming data.

This feature is currently available for Insiders only. If you want to test it, all you need to do is download and install the latest Windows 10 build (17643). This option will be available to the general public after Microsoft launched Windows 10 Redstone 5 this fall.

If you need to enable or turn off SIM data, simply navigate to Cellular Settings and locate the corresponding option.

The new roaming data usage feature will definitely be very useful ‘always-connected’ Windows 10 laptops users. These devices feature LTE connectivity advantages and many will be powered by Snapdragon CPUs.
