Microsoft Will Live Stream The Launch Of Windows 8.1 Update 1

BUILD 2014 is right around the corner, and while tickets for the event are more or less sold out, fans and users that want in on the action have a way to do so later this week.

Microsoft have just announced that, similar to how they do it every year, they will be streaming the event live on two of its websites. This should make it easy for anyone with an Internet connection to tune in and witness the launch of the next version of Window.

Here is the announcement rolled out earlier today:

“For those that don’t know Build, this is the major event that Microsoft is celebrating for and with Developers Worldwide, an event where you can find out what’s new in Windows, Windows Phone, Azure, and other technologies. An event plenty of 100, 200, 300 and 400 level sessions where you can develop your skills and improve as a developer.”

Short and sweet — the latter more so, as interest in Windows 8.1 Update 1 is high.

Interested parties can tune in to buildwindows.com and channel9.msdn.com to watch the unveiling of the next version of Windows, along with the presentation of Windows Phone 8.1, and all that good stuff. Developers, in particular, can get the lowdown new technologies thanks to these streams.

Mark your calendars, then, folks, for April 2.

    What time is this expected to start? I’d love to watch, but I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to see.

    Is this the first year Microsoft has streamed BUILD online? If so, I think this is a great idea. It gives the fans an inside look.

  • Jason Claven

    I will certainly be watching when I can! I am ecstatic to see the 8.1 phone. It should be legendary!

    Wow, seems like articles took all day to get up today, but this is good news. I can’t wait for the event to start. I’m going to add it to my calendar

    How much is the avg. ticket to go to BUILD? I know it’s too late for this year probably, but I wouldn’t mind attending one in the future. I will view this one online when I find time.

    I hope they go into great depth and detail on the 8.1 phone. I want features and physical prototypes as well as a sturdy release date. If we get all of that, I’ll be a happy camper!
