Last year, Microsoft debuted its Windows 365 online service, and now the company has unveiled an improved desktop that also operates in the cloud.
Microsoft Dev Box, a new cloud service that contains apps and services for developers to easily access preconfigured development resources, was introduced by the firm.
Because Microsoft Dev Box is based on the Windows 365 service, creating a new virtual machine and getting started will be simple.

Any current browser will be able to use the service, and it will support any Windows-based integrated development environment (IDE), software development kit (SDK), or tools.
Dev Boxes, according to the business, are ideal for desktop, mobile, IoT, and game developers, and apps can be developed for many platforms utilizing the Windows subsystem for Linux.
“Development teams can generate and preserve Dev Box images with all the tools and dependencies their engineers need to build and execute their apps,” said Anthony Cangialosi, Microsoft's Head of PM Group.
Developers can then preserve outdated application Dev Boxes or older versions of their programs to replicate the client environment.
IT administrators may utilize Microsoft Dev Box with Windows 365 since it is integrated.
Microsoft Dev Box is now available in private preview, with a public release coming in the next months.
Microsoft accepts Microsoft Dev Box subscriptions through its developer portal.
