Starting on October 9, Windows 8 Apps Can be Installed on up to 81 Devices (up from 5)September 27, 2013 No Comments
Today. Microsoft announced that starting October 9th, ‘Windows Store apps can be installed on up to 81 devices associated with a single Microsoft account’. Since launch, the limit was only 5 devices.
Since we launched Windows 8, we heard growing feedback from many developers and from our most enthusiastic customers that the limit of 5 was not enough for their needs. Developers asked for more flexibility in implementing their business models, and customers wanted to run those apps on the variety of tablets, laptops and desktops they owned.
In response to that feedback, and as we announced at the Build conference in June, we’re increasing the app roaming limit to remove friction from the app installation process. Starting on October 9, Windows Store apps can be installed on up to 81 devices associated with a single Microsoft account. This will apply to all apps in the Store, for both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
