As part of its opening day Ignite 2021 festivities, Microsoft announced today that the Power Automate Desktop app for Windows 10 is now available, and at no extra cost. And it looks like it will be included in Windows 10 in a future release, too.
“Power Automate Desktop is now available at no additional cost, allowing Windows 10 users to harness the power of low-code robotic process automation (RPA),” Microsoft’s Steve Clarke writes. “The technology is available as a download and will be included in Windows Insider Preview builds in the coming weeks.”
Power Automate Desktop is a user-friendly, low-code application aimed at both coders and non-coders alike, and it’s used to optimize personal and work-based workflows by automating repetitive and time-consuming manual tasks. One might also see it as a graphical front-end to the RPA in Power Automate functionality that Microsoft first announced at Ignite 2019.
