Watch next generation of Windows Livestream
Microsoft is introducing the next generation of Windows at 3 PM GMT, 6 PM EAT, 5 PM SAT today. The company will for the first time reveal what it has secretly been working on. Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella mentioned at Build 2021 he has been self-hosting its development over the past several months. Saying it is one of the most significant updates to the Windows operating system over the past decade.
We have seen the leaked Windows 11 build showing the new start menu and user interface changes. But we know that is an early build and there will be changes by the time Microsoft introduces it to the public. We expect to hear more about the store and how Microsoft will make it the most innovative new open platform to build, distribute and monetize applications.
At the event to introduce Windows 10, six years ago, Microsoft also introduced the HoloLens and Surface Hub. It also talked about Xbox on Windows 10 and I believe the company will do something similar this year. Talking about the whole ecosystem of products that rely on Windows.
The event is streaming on the Microsoft website and we will embed the video above when it starts. Microsoft is also hosting another event on what’s next for developers later in the day. We will also bring you updates on all the new features and developments as they get announced at the event. Stay tuned.
