Nadella On Windows
With Windows, we are putting people at the center to help them securely work, connect and play. Despite a changing market for PCs during the quarter, we continue to see more PCs shipped than pre-pandemic and are taking share.
And we are seeing higher monthly usage of Windows 11 applications with increased time spent across creative work, collaboration, gaming, media and writing code as people rely on the PC for its unique productivity capabilities, rich interactive experiences and to stay connected.
We’re transforming how Windows is experienced and managed with Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365. Azure Virtual Desktop monthly active usage increased nearly 60 percent year over year.
One year in, we are seeing strong adoption of Windows 365 from organizations in every industry—from … Commercial Bank and Kyndryl to Lego Group and [investment manager] Schroders—as they use cloud PCs to rapidly on-board new and temporary employees and speed M&A integration while reducing IT costs.
