BELLEVUE, Wash. — Microsoft’s Windows 10 has reached a new milestone: 600 million active monthly devices.

CEO Satya Nadella referenced the new number for the first time moments ago at the company’s annual shareholders meeting, where he is giving analysts and investors an update on Microsoft’s progress and strategy.

The number is up from the 500 million devices touted by Microsoft earlier this year, but it’s still well short of the company’s original goal of 1 billion Windows 10 devices within two to three years of its 2015 release. The company acknowledged previously that it wouldn’t be able to reach that original goal.
