Windows 10 Now Runs On 600 Million Monthly Active Devices

Microsoft might have abandoned their dreams of Windows 10 running on 1 billion devices. They did what not to promote Windows 10 and install it on every device they could. But still, the slower than what Microsoft expected growth of the newest OS has led to a big user base of 600 million monthly active Windows 10 devices.

The latest numbers were announced by CEO Satya Nadella at the annual shareholders’ meeting on Wednesday, reports GeekWire. It took the company around 6 months time to another 100 million devices since May when Windows 10 crossed the 500 million active devices mark. Microsoft reported crossing 400 million active devices in September 2016.

Even if Microsoft is secretly desperate for their 1 billion Windows 10 devices target, they might have to wait for a little while.

In related news, the recently released Fall Creators Update 1709 now runs on 20.4% of Windows 10 PCs, according to the data released by AdDuplex. While it’s immediate predecessor, Creators Update 1703 has its presence on around 63.5% of PCs running Windows 10.
