Windows 10 is currently being used by 300 million users every day.

So many users, so little time

With this, Windows 10 now powers 400 million active devices throughout the world. But how many of these devices are used every day? According to Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi, the latest version of Window is currently being run by 300 million users every day for a minimum of 3.5 hours every day across the world.

During an interview with Bloomberg Tech, Mehdi confirmed:

Windows 10 has been doing great. It’s been many months since we reported we had 400 million monthly active users, but 300 million+ use it every day for 3 and a half hours. It’s the fastest adoption in corporations we’ve ever seen, and we’re seeing great deployment on that. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress on Windows”.

Windows 10 S

Yusuf Mehdi also mentioned the latest version of Windows 10, Windows 10 S. Even if the new OS hasn’t gotten very positive feedback, it features a few benefits such as full Office, the ability to work offline, VR, inking, and much more.

What Windows 10 S does is all of Windows as you know it, so you can do things like VR, 3D, pen and ink, but you get the two benefits: you get just the apps that come from the Store — so you get that safety, the security, and the performance. But you get none of the drawbacks of Chromebooks, so you get to work offline, you get full Office, you get the ability to run Minecraft, you get some really rich experiences, and that’s how it sets us apart., said Mehdi.

Windows 10 has been constantly growing for the company, and its recent updates have been received well,  ith almost 10% users already running the newest major update for the operating system.

It’s almost a sure thing that Microsoft will provide an updated number for Windows 10’s active devices during Build 2017 scheduled for next week, so stay tuned.
