How Much Will Windows 365 Cost

Earlier this week, Microsoft revealed Windows 365, a cloud-based subscription that allows users to run Windows on Cloud. Microsoft says it’ll help users spend less time maintaining Windows machines and more time getting work done. One important thing that Microsoft didn’t reveal, however, was the pricing.

It looks like Microsoft accidentally revealed the pricing info for the Windows 365 subscription (Spoilers: they’re par with the competitors). So, let’s get into it –

Windows 365 Pricing: Cheap!

Let’s cut to the chase. One of the basic plans in the subscription will cost $31 per month for small business owners with 300 employees. It will come with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which each employee could access at just $31. We’re not sure if this is the most basic plan, but we’re still betting Microsoft will go cheaper. And, of course, there will be more plans that Microsoft hasn’t revealed yet.
