Microsoft is slated to hold a “What’s Next for Windows” event on June 24th at 11 am ET to unveil Windows 11, a name recently confirmed thanks to the leaked build that made it onto the internet. It turns out, however, that the Windows 11 event may not be the only one taking place next Thursday, as the Redmond company is holding an event for 3 p.m. ET that it is announced today on Twitter.
As with these event invitations, not much information is provided. However, rumor has it that the company is working on a brand new Microsoft Store with new guidelines that expand the types of apps that can be distributed through the store. It is possible that this announcement, along with more information about the specifics for developers, will be provided during the event.
During the company’s Build conference last month, CEO Satya Nadella said the company “will create more opportunities for every Windows developer” and that it “will welcome every creator looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build seeks “.[,] to distribute[,] and monetize applications ”. It is possible that the developer-focused event will be immersed in new app development and monetization capabilities provided by the revised Microsoft Store policies. It remains to be seen if there are any surprising announcements.
The developer event is scheduled for June 24 at 3 p.m. ET, four hours after the live stream for the Windows 11 event begins. The company will stream the developer event here on YouTube.
