Windows 10X has been officially discontinued, and Microsoft says it will use some of its features in future versions of Windows instead. The official confirmation of the cancellation of Windows 10X comes a few days after the report claims that its resources have been moved to other versions of Windows 10. Microsoft shared the development in the blog post on updates to Windows 10. Windows 10X had to work on devices with dual screen and foldable computers and was originally scheduled for release in 2020. It was supposed to be an alternative to Google’s Chrome OS.
Last week, a report quoting people familiar with the matter, they claimed this Windows 10X will not be sent again this year and may “probably never arrive”. Instead, it is said that some features of Windows 10X flow to Windows 10. Now, Microsoft confirm this by updating the feature of Windows 10 21H1 blog post. The company says that Windows 10X should not be limited to a subset of customers, as the original intention of Windows 10X was to run on dual screens and folding computers. Microsoft adds that it has decided to use Windows 10X technology in more ways and to serve more customers, which means it will integrate its features into other editions of Windows and Microsoft products.
“We concluded that 10X technology should not be limited to a subset of customers. Instead of launching a product called Windows 10X on the market in 2021, as we originally planned, we are using the lessons of our journey so far and accelerating the integration of key core 10X technologies in other parts of Windows and the company’s products, “the blog post reads. .
Microsoft says some of these features are embedded in Windows Insider preview compilations. Such as a new application container technology that integrates with Microsoft Defender Application Guard, an improved voice input experience, and an upgraded touch keyboard.
Windows 10X was announced in October 2019 as a new operating system designed specifically for dual-screen folding devices. At that time, it was planned to be released in 2020. In April last year, Microsoft delayed booting windows 10x. Then in May 2020, Microsoft announced that will slightly change its plans for Windows 10X and will release it first for single screen devices. The operating system, which was supposed to compete with Google’s Chrome OS, has been completely discontinued.
