In addition to Microsoft is building a new Windows 10 store,ZDNet There is also another rumor that Microsoft is preparing to launch a cloud PC service, which will be launched as soon as this summer. Conceptually, this is quite similar to the recent extremely popular cloud gaming services, allowing users to remotely connect to a cloud server through apps, browsers, etc., to run software such as Office. This will make the cloud PC lose one of the biggest advantages of the PC (you can execute any software you want to install), but in exchange for a certain degree of network connection, you can use the familiar software environment anywhere.

Microsoft is rumored to put this service package under Microsoft 365, and it may be divided into three different fixed-rate levels based on processor, memory, and storage. In addition to personal use, companies may also use such a system to create a closed and easy-to-control IT environment. This is probably the main target market for Microsoft.

If the rumors are true, the Build at the end of May will be a good time for Microsoft to disclose the service. As for the launch date, it is most likely to be near the Microsoft Inspire Partner Forum in mid-July.
