Windows 10 is now powering over 1 billion monthly active devices

When it launched Windows 10 in 2015, Microsoft said it hoped to put the OS on 1 billion devices within three years of its release. Now five years later, Microsoft says that goal has been reached.Microsoft set out with big ambitions to make Windows 10 the operating system powering most of the planet’s PCs, but just a year following the OS’s release, Microsoft was already backing off its plans to hit the billion-device goal. It then provided sporadic updates on the adoption rate as Windows 10 uptake continued. Now, that billion-device milestone has been reached.

Microsoft had been planning to get Windows 10 running on a billion devices within three years of its release, but the company extended that timeline after Windows Phone failed to challenge iOS and Android. The milestone comes less than five years after the original release, and less than six months after Microsoft hit 900 million devices on Windows 10.Windows 10 is now “the only operating system at the heart of over 80,000 models and configurations of different laptops and 2-in-1s from over 1,000 different manufacturers,” reveals Mehdi.

Windows 10 launched in July 2015, a few months after Build 2015. To help get things going, Microsoft promoted a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users for the first year. That resulted in a flurry of upgrades to Windows 10 in the early going, but as things settled down, it became clear that hitting one billion active installs would take longer than expected.

This figure of 1 billion Windows 10 devices includes desktops, laptops, HoloLens, and Xbox One consoles. Microsoft had planned to hit its goal of 1 billion devices in less than 3 years of introducing the new operating system. It took almost 5 years, but the company is finally here... with a little bit of help from Windows 7, which hit its end of support deadline only two months back, pushing businesses to Windows 10.
