Windows 365 free trials have been paused by Microsoft due to a “significant demand” for the service. Windows 365 only launched on Monday, August 2, 2021 but free trials for it reached capacity in a single day. Microsoft will add more capacity, allowing free trials to resume. People can sign up to be notified when trials are up and running again.
“Following significant demand, we have reached capacity for Windows 365 trials,” said the Microsoft 365 Twitter account. Paid plans for Windows 365 are still available on Microsoft’s website.
Scott Manchester, director of program management Windows 365, said that Microsoft has “seen [an] unbelievable response to Windows 365.”
The service allows people to access a cloud PC from a wide range of devices, including iPads, Android tablets, Macs, and PCs. A subscription for the service starts at $20 per month, but prices depend on how much RAM, storage, and data people need. A subscription with a 8vCPU, 32GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and 70GB of outbound data costs $162 per user per month.
Right now, Windows 365 is only available for business or enterprise users.
