Unification in the Beta Channel: A New Era for Windows Insider
All Windows Insider users in the beta channel now share the same version, build 22635.xxxx. This change was made possible by the introduction of an enablement package, which ensures that all users are aligned with the same version of the software. For those who wish to stay up-to-date with the latest features, a special option can be enabled in the Windows Update settings. This allows users to receive updates as they become available.
Innovations and Improvements: The Future of Windows 11
Future Beta Channel builds will be documented in two separate sections: one dedicated to new features, improvements, and fixes that will be implemented gradually for users with the switch enabled, and the other for new features available to all beta channel users.
Simplified and Intuitive Sharing with Windows Sharing
Windows has introduced a series of simplified and intuitive sharing features, revolutionizing the way users interact with their devices and share content online. Users can now share files, images, documents, and links with the click of a button, taking advantage of native integration with popular services such as WhatsApp, Gmail, Facebook, and LinkedIn. One of the most notable features is the integration of sharing in Microsoft Edge. With a simple click on the sharing icon in the toolbar, users can now easily share any web page or content directly through their preferred platforms. This simplified process eliminates the need to copy and paste links, saving valuable time and making sharing more immediate.
Microsoft Store: Innovations and Performance
The Microsoft Store, a key component of the Windows ecosystem, is also receiving significant updates. Among the new features is the ability to launch Instant Arcade games directly while browsing, an innovation that promises to revolutionize the gaming experience. In addition, performance improvements have been implemented, making the process of installing apps and games faster and smoother.
Advanced Weather Experience
Another noteworthy feature is the enrichment of weather information on the lock screen. Users can now enjoy dynamic and interactive weather updates. Hovering the mouse over the weather indicator on the lock screen will provide detailed information. Clicking on it will open Microsoft Edge with the full forecast on MSN Weather. This new experience is on by default, but can be turned off by changing the lock screen settings.
Build 22635.3061 of the Windows 11 Insider Preview represents a significant step forward in the OS development roadmap. Insiders in the beta channel are actively contributing to the refinement of the OS through their feedback and participation.
