Parallels allows Mac users to run Windows 7, 8.1, Linux and Chrome OS on any Mac product, and today, the program now allows Parallels customers to also try out the Windows 10 Technical Preview, as well as the Windows 10 Office Preview.
Just like Windows 10 testers on PC, those who use Parallels can also provide feedback on the new Windows build. The Windows OS is technically a virtual machine and works alongside Mac OS Yosemite, Mavericks or Mountain Lion and appears as a separate window on the desktop. To run Windows 10, Parallels users need to upgrade to version 10.1.4.
The latest version includes Windows integration with Mac functions. For example, running Microsoft Office on Parallels allows saving documents on Dropbox, Google Drive or Apple's iCloud. Additionally, apps installed on Windows will also appear on the Mac launchpad for easy access.
However, Parallels might be a little costly for customers. After a two-week trial of Parallels, it will cost you $79.99 to keep going, while students only have to pay $39.99. Those who already own Parallels version 8 or 9 might have up to upgrade to the latest version for $49.99.
Additionally, those on Parallels version 10 also get a three-month subscription to Parallels Access, an app that allows remote access for up to five Macs and PCs as well as iOS and Android devices.
