I promised recently that I’d keep a close eye on Windows 10 install numbers over the next few weeks, as it’s something many people are interested in and to many a deciding factor on whether Windows 10 is doing well or not. So according to my contacts, Windows 10 is now installed on over 50 million devices worldwide.
50 million is an impressive number indeed, especially when you consider the install count was around half of that just 7 days ago. My sources say Microsoft began pushing Windows 10 out to a whole lot more devices this week, as their method of upgrading in waves is still ongoing. The Redmond giant has slowly been adding more and more compatible devices to its upgrade waves, so expect this number to continue rising over the coming months.
Microsoft is currently working on it’s first non-patch style update for Windows 10, codenamed Threshold 2 and set for arrival in October this year. The update will include a new universal Messaging app, extensions for Edge (plus other Edge improvements) and updates to the Universal App Platform. With over 50 million users running Windows 10, Microsoft desperately needs to tend to some of Windows 10’s biggest fall-backs, and with Threshold 2, the company will begin that process.
