When Windows 365 was first announced, the pricing of the subscription wasn’t made clear, although Microsoft did let slip that it might be priced around $20 a month. For those wondering about the pricing and hoping for a more official answer, you’ll be pleased to learn that it will indeed be priced at $20 a month.
$20 a month is actually not too bad of a price when you consider the conveniences that Windows 365 has to offer. For those unfamiliar, Windows 365 is a new service announced by Microsoft that lets users stream Windows. This will be useful for Mac users who might need to access Windows, especially since its newer M1 Mac computers in which it would be almost impossible for consumers to get their hands on a copy of the ARM version of Windows.
It would also be useful for remote workers who might need to access a company’s computer system from home, and having Microsoft set it up for you would be easier and cheaper than paying an IT admin. That being said, Windows 365 is currently only available to enterprise users so if you’re a regular consumer, you might have to wait.
Also, $20 is the cheapest option available which will get you a 1vCPU, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 12GB of outbound data. There are more powerful options with more data offered, so depending on your needs, you might be able to get away with just paying $20 a month.
