This means that the subscribers of Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 along with Secure Productive Enterprise E3 and E5, do not need to purchase any separate license to upgrade their Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs and devices to Windows 10.
 
This is an important benefit in addition to Windows cloud subscriptions in CSP as this will enable the users who have missed or have not yet upgraded to Windows 10, to take advantage of enterprise-grade security.
 
In order to take advantage of this new upgrade benefit, tenant admins for users with Windows cloud subscription can log into Office 365 Admin Center with their Azure Active Directory admin credentials, along with options to start the upgrade on the device which you are using at the moment. You can also share the download link with others in the organization, create installation media, or troubleshoot installation.
 
Microsoft states,
 
“The Windows 10 upgrade licenses issued as part of this process are perpetual and associated with the device. This means the license will not expire or be revoked if the customer chooses to end their Windows cloud subscription in the CSP program.”
 
The new upgrade benefits are now rolling out and tenant admins with Windows subscriptions in CSP should start to see Windows 10 upgrade options along with links in their Office 365 Admin Center over 48 hours.
