Microsoft has revealed that the full Windows 10 suite will be made available across all Windows 8.1 devices from later this year.

Speaking at Mobile World Congress, Steve Elop – Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Devices and Services – made the announcement and explained that some of the Windows 10 features will vary depending on the specs of each device.

There are currently over 2 million registered Windows Insiders who have provided Microsoft with more than 900,000 pieces of feedback re Windows 10, which has helped the company to develop and optimize the operating system for mobile.

Cortana will also be coming to all Windows 10 devices incorporating the upgraded reminders feature which will sync across multiple Windows devices.
