Microsoft promises Windows 10 for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices

By November 14th, 2014 AT 4:09 PM

Even though Microsoft is yet to reveal what are the new features that will be released with Windows 10, but they have already announced the update for all Lumia smartphones with Windows 8. The official Lumia account affirmed via tweet that all Lumia devices running Windows Phone 8 OS will definitely receive an upgrade to the Windows 10.

The Twitter account of Microsoft Lumia is now being operated by Microsoft, which is why, the information sent out through the account in the form of a tweet, can be termed as genuinely official. The latest tweet means all the Lumia devices running on Windows Phone 8 platform, right from the high-end to the low-end ones, will be upgraded to Windows 10 operating system.

The news has surfaced immediately after the leaks began to spill out, that Microsoft has issued the builds of Windows Phone 10 to its partners for testing. However, this does’t mean that devices will start receiving the update right away as the development is still at a very early stage.

The announcement is a sigh of relief for Lumia owners, as they can be sure now that history will not be repeating itself. In 2012, Microsoft disappointed its loyal users by declaring that Windows Phone 7 based devices won’t be upgraded to Windows Phone 8. The drastic announcement was mostly due to a major change in the Windows 8 software kernel, but all the technical reasoning did nothing to convince the mass.

Are you a Lumia user? What are your expectations for the Windows 10 update?
