During its online event, Microsoft unveiled Windows 11.
The announcement comes almost six years after the release of Windows 10, the world’s most popular PC operating system, which is installed on over 1.3 billion devices.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella remarked, “Today marks a major milestone in the history of Windows.” “This is the start of a new generation.”
During the pandemic, as people stayed at home and spent more time with Windows 10 for school, work, and gaming, Windows, which accounts for over 10% of Microsoft’s income despite the company’s growth through cloud services, became more important.
Windows 11 will accept Android apps via Amazon’s app store, according to Microsoft.
This means that popular apps that people use on their phones will be available on the PC as well.
Microsoft is also bringing some Xbox console functions to Windows 11.
Automatic HDR, which adjusts the lighting and color in a game to make the graphics more vivid, will be included in Windows 11.
It requires well-supported games as well as the appropriate equipment.
Direct storage, which allows big game worlds to be loaded quickly utilizing fast hard drives, was also introduced by Microsoft.
Snap layouts in Windows 11 make it simple to move application windows into preset setups.
Microsoft is integrating Teams directly into Windows.
Microsoft also unveiled a redesigned app store, which will include more conventional Win32 apps.
Apps can be available in the store without Microsoft collecting a cut of income from app sales.
The operating system will improve the performance of Microsoft’s Edge browser when browsing the internet, allowing for longer battery life.
