Welcome to the Fifty-first (51st) Windows 365 Community newsletter! We highlight weekly Windows 365 news, free events, tips, and tricks from the world of the Cloud PC.
Let’s have a look at what’s new this week.
Just one year ago, we announced Windows 365 to the world and introduced the Cloud PC, a whole new category of cloud computing. And thanks to customer feedback about new features and functionality you want to see, we’ve added Azure AD Join support for Cloud PCs, Microsoft Teams feature enhancements, and more. We have great things planned for our second year, and we invite you to continue to provide feedback to help us continue to enhance the service. So, thanks to you, our customers.
Happy birthday to Windows 365. And here’s to another great year!
