Microsoft engineer accidentally leaked Windows 365 subscription price, 2 cores, 4GB RAM, $31/month

Microsoft yesterday announced the launch of the Windows 365 Cloud PC service, which is essentially a remote desktop hosted in the data center for users to use at any time after connecting.

Although this service is not Microsoft’s original technology, according to the huge number of users and operating strategies, there may be companies willing to reduce costs to use this new service.

It’s just that Microsoft has not announced the subscription price of Windows 365, but Microsoft engineers accidentally leaked the price of a certain hardware configuration to let us see in advance.

The configuration that Microsoft engineers showed during the demonstration was that the company ordered less than 300 Cloud PCs, 2 cores, 4GB of memory, and 128G of storage space for $31/month.

Microsoft stated that this is only the pricing of one of the SKUs. When the product is officially launched on August 2 to provide services, Microsoft will announce detailed specifications and pricing.

Interestingly, from the leaked screenshots, we also see that Microsoft has indicated that it supports services such as Microsoft 365, OneDrive, Dynamics 365, and Teams.

These services themselves need to be paid for by subscription. If the Cloud PC provided by Microsoft directly includes these authorizations, the price of $31 is still very cheap.

After all, there are licensing fees for installing Windows 10, and Microsoft may not limit users’ bandwidth and traffic, so the actual user experience will be better.

Windows 365 features:

  • Procure, provision, and deploy in minutes, with optional automated OS updates.
  • Offers user anywhere access to their personalized Windows desktop experience.
  • Tailor compute and configurations for an elastic workforce.
  • Pick up where you left off on the device of your choice.
  • Optimize experiences on Windows endpoints.
  • Scale confidently with per-user pricing.
