Recode reader Jeff sent in the following tip: Microsoft is announcing new “Windows 10” operating system which will support cloud services.
The company is also planning to add social networking, which could be a huge boon for Microsoft’s cloud efforts.
The operating system will include “a lot of new things,” Microsoft said, including cloud services that let customers connect their PCs to the cloud.
Windows 10 will include several cloud-related features, including the ability to share data across devices and share documents with a partner, according to Microsoft.
These features will be available in the Windows Insider program, the company added.
Windows Insiders will also be able to share apps with Microsoft cloud services for “a seamless experience.”
Microsoft plans to launch the new operating system for PCs in “early 2019” and for tablets “in early 2020,” the company said.
Microsoft previously announced plans to add “Microsoft OneDrive” cloud services in “the coming months.”
The company also said it will support several “new features” including cloud-enabled productivity apps and new tools to streamline “operating system” workflows.
Windows will be the only OS in Windows 10 to support “Windows Share,” Microsoft added.
