Windows 10 is now on 900 million devices, an impressive feat for Microsoft’s newest desktop operating system.
The Redmond, Washington-based company’s corporate vice-president, Yusuf Mehdi, announced the achievement on Twitter. Mehdi also pointed out that Microsoft added more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than ever before.
#Windows10 is on more than 900M devices! Thanks to our customers, we added more new Windows 10 devices in the last 12 months than ever before. From PCs to HoloLens to Xbox to Surface Hub, Windows continues to power innovation—with more to come next week! https://t.co/G3CRdkFoPT pic.twitter.com/38fKk50IEH

Mehdi also hinted at what’s to come at Microsoft’s upcoming Surface event, suggesting more Windows 10-powered devices will make an appearance at the event.
Considering Windows 10 only just surpassed Windows 7 in market share at the end of 2018, the 900 million mark is an impressive one to hit.
Microsoft will likely see Windows 10 continue to grow as Windows 7 nears the end of its extended support period.
