They say Microsoft will address some unfinished parts of Windows 11 in next month’s update Blog post By Microsoft Product Manager Panos Panay. At the top of the new features is a general preview of Android apps that run on WindowsA feature announced by Microsoft when it announced Windows 11 in June 2021.
Microsoft also named a few other areas of improvement in the post: redesigned Notepad and media player apps, taskbar improvements, a universal button to mute and unmute, “easier window sharing,” adding weather directly to the taskbar instead of a widget to keep .
Most of these updates have been available to Windows Insiders in the Beta and Dev channels for some time, so check out our coverage map (eg. NotepadAnd Changes in the taskbarAnd Many different pieces) to get a good idea of what things will look like. We’ll likely see changes that Microsoft hasn’t released yet, but it’s unlikely that major changes will bypass preview channels until they are widely released.
The updates Microsoft has released since the release of Windows 11 in October collectively answer a question we asked in our review: whether shortcomings in the new operating system should wait until the Windows Annual Maintenance Updates are fixed. Microsoft will likely introduce at least some major changes and new features for Windows 11 22H2 later this year, but the company is clearly taking a “when you’re ready” approach to individual app updates, and features that are always forwarded, come first in Last rank announced summer. Minor functional improvements based on user feedback.
Microsoft has not provided specific Windows 11 rollout numbers, but Panay said the Windows 11 upgrade offer “has begun to enter the final phase of availability, a step that precedes our original plan for mid-2022”. Microsoft started the process of upgrading Windows 10 to Windows 11 on newer systems first, helping them solve early problems (and who – which It was a lot) before publishing it on all computers that are compatible with Strict system requirements. Windows 10 users can still easily delay upgrading Windows 11 if they wish, but at least they have the option to install the new operating system via Windows Update soon if they haven’t already. (Manual installation is also an option and the only way to install Windows 11 Computers that do not meet all requirements.)
