Computers, Macs, iPads, and iPhones can now download the Windows app

An iOS, iPadOS, macOS, Windows, and web browser Windows App has been developed by Microsoft. With this app, Windows 365, Azure Virtual Desktop, Microsoft Dev Box, and Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services can all be streamed from a remote PC. In essence, the previous Windows 365 app was transformed into a central hub.

Microsoft offers three features: device redirection for peripherals such as webcams, storage devices, and printers; custom display resolutions and scaling; and support for multiple monitors via its Windows App. But as of right now, Android users cannot access the Windows App’s preview version.

The Windows App is likewise restricted to business accounts offered by Microsoft, though there are hints that consumers will also be able to access it. The Windows App on Windows sign-in prompt (yes, that sounds fancy) says you can use your personal Microsoft Account to access the app, but that feature isn’t operational at the moment.

For many years, Microsoft has offered comparable remote PC connection apps. The most well-known of these is the Remote Desktop Connection app that comes with Windows. However, a specialized “Windows App” is an odd branding choice that might indicate Microsoft is starting to pursue its larger goals of moving Windows entirely to the cloud.

After former Surface and Windows chief Panos Panay left the company for Amazon in September, Microsoft formed a new Windows team with a focus on the web. Building AI-powered web services for Windows appears to be the main focus of the newly formed “Windows and Web Experiences” team. Windows 11 has already seen the arrival of several web-powered features, such as a widgets system, Copilot integration, and a main search interface that updates dynamically from the web.

Microsoft wants to completely move Windows to the cloud for consumers, something it has already been offering to businesses with Windows 365, according to information revealed during the FTC v. Microsoft hearing. The Windows App may have paved the way for users to access Windows apps and cloud PCs on non-Microsoft operating system-running devices.
