According to reports, the new Windows 10 Cloud is a move by Microsoft to bring a simplified and safer version of its existing Windows 10, but at a lower price. There are no official announcements on when Microsoft will release its new Windows 10 Cloud yet. It the new Windows Cloud does rolls out, the timing couldn't be more perfect as Google Chrome OS laptops are now leading as the second-highest in the market in terms of sales, CDA News reported.

According to Google, its Chromebook's sales went up 20 percent for its year-over-year growth last year. However, these devices are also becoming more expensive as Google claims that these laptops are becoming sophisticated.

Other services that will be included in the new Windows 10 Cloud are the Contrata for assistance, OneDrive for storage, and Office 365 for work related activities.
