It’s that time again. A new Windows 11 Insider Preview build is out, and this time around, it’s hitting an important milestone. The watermark that identifies the build as Preview has been removed.
This is something that happens with every release cycle. This means that this particular update is nearing its end. of course, it No just finished; We’re also not expecting Windows 11 version 22H2 to be released until October or later. But soon, beta channel insiders will start seeing cumulative updates instead of full builds. This will be in order to service the feature to get it in the best shape before releasing the update.
This is also when we start to figure out what exactly is going to be included in the next feature update. Remember, in the dev channel, the features visible in the build are for testing only. Those features may appear in the next update, or they may not. They may not be visible at all. Now that the feature update is almost complete, we can clearly see what that product will look like.
For example, Microsoft held an event earlier this month to outline the new features coming to Windows 11. They include a new file explorer that includes tabs, Live Captions that will transcribe audio from any source, folders in the Start menu, touch support. for Snap Layout, and more. A lot of this is already live in the Dev Channel, but Microsoft never said exactly when these features are going to arrive. They may come via an experience pack at some point, or they may come in a feature update. There’s really no way to tell anymore, unless Microsoft tells us.
