Microsoft announced the settlement for the second quarter of 2021, that is, October-December 2020. According to the report, revenue was $2.9 billion, up 17% to $41.3 billion, and net profit was up 33% to $15.5 billion.
The cloud business has driven the performance so far, but this quarter, PC sectors such as Windows and Surface showed strong performance due to increased demand from going out and remote work due to the Corona 19 epidemic. Even the personal computing sector, including the Xbox business, generated revenues of $11.5 billion, up 14 percent. Looking at the Xbox alone, hardware sales increased 86% due to the release of Series X, and Xbox contents and services also increased 40%. The number of Xbox Game Pass members rose to 18 million, an increase of 3 million from 15 million in August last year.
Intel has also seen a 33% increase in PC revenue in the recent quarter as it draws demand from people stuck in the house due to Corona 19. Microsoft’s sales of Windows operating systems remained at a 1% increase, but commercial products and cloud services are recording a 10% increase. Related information can be found here .
