"These two billion Firstline Workers are the people who serve as the first point of contact between an organization and its customers or products". The company is simultaneously finalizing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is expected to arrive on October 17, and developing the update that will come after it.

Last week Microsoft released build 16296 for Fast Ring.

Microsoft is banking on these devices to push its recently rebranded subscription service, Microsoft 365, into the enterprise. Microsoft has released many such updates, including three major ones: November Update, Anniversary Update, and Creators Update.

Microsoft said its OEMs are taking aim at "frontline" workers with their new devices, including the HP Stream 14 Pro, which will retail at $275, the Acer Aspire 1 at $299, Swift 1 at $349 and the Lenovo 330, which will also cost $349 (UK prices are yet to be confirmed).

When Windows 10 S was officially announced back in May of this year, Microsoft mentioned that it was designing the operating system for students and education users.

"It offers more seamless integration with hosted VMs for remote desktop and apps for firstline worker scenarios", wrote Bernardo Caldas, Microsoft's general manager for Windows commercial marketing, in a blog post Monday. "A critical part of empowering this workforce is providing custom technology experiences and streamlined, secure devices that help them get their work done and build skills". And planning Windows 10 deployments at scale with readiness efforts and stay compliant and up-to-date.

Microsoft 365 F1 includes Office Online; Outlook for email; SharePoint, Yammer, and Groups for collaboration; 2 GB of cloud-based storage; Microsoft StaffHub, PowerApps, and Flow for task and schedule management; Microsoft Intune and other services for device and app management; and additional Microsoft services and software for content storage, threat protection, information protection, and identity and access management.
