The new operating system promises to bring a series of new features and an amazing usability. However, the update for phones will actually come after Microsoft will make the release for PCs.
The announcement was actually made by Microsoft, in a blog post. The famous company also revealed that the Windows 10 for phone will bring Windows Store beta, Movies & TV page, as well as Universal Office apps such as Word, Excel, but also PowerPoint and OneNote Preview and Xbox app, the Music Preview app and the Video Preview app.
The new operating system will also come with a New Camera app. This update is said to feature HDR, video stabilization, as well as face-based autofocus.
Without a doubt, all these are interesting features that users will definitely enjoy. However, user might have to wait for quite some time until they will be able to access them.
Moreover, Microsoft announced now that the free upgrade for the new operating system will not be supported on the PCs that are running a pirated version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.
However, this does not mean that the users who have such a version won't be able to access the new OS at all. So, people who are using a pirated copy of Windows on their device will most likely have to pay if they want to upgrade to Windows 10.
Microsoft and our OEM partners know that many consumers are unwitting victims of piracy, and with Windows 10, we would like all of our customers to move forward with us together.
While our free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 will not apply to Non-Genuine Windows devices, and as we’ve always done, we will continue to offer Windows 10 to customers running devices in a Non-Genuine state," a statement shared by the famous company on its blog indicated.
Microsoft claimed that it expected for Windows 10 to be installed on no less than 1 billion devices around the world.
And besides the already mentioned features, it seems that the popular company has added another thing that people love and that will come with the update: Candy Crush. Microsoft just revealed that the highly popular Candy Crush Saga will be automatically installed on users' devices when they upgrade to Windows 10.
However, it is yet unsure how this will work, as it has been claimed that the game will be accessible on the new OS at least for a period of time.
Still, there were no indications on when that period of time begins and when it ends. However, Microsoft claimed that Windows 10 will allow players to transfer their progress to iOS or Android devices, which is without a doubt great news for players who want to complete all the levels of the popular game. Candy Crush has no less than 1,615 levels at the moment.
