Windows 11

On Friday, Microsoft released the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview build 22000.71 to the Dev channel. It seems that the company is not going to be offering lots of new features via the Windows Insider Program.




It seems that there will be very few new features, with the only exceptions being the Teams integration and Android app support, both of which are yet to be released to the Dev channel.

Within Windows 11 preview build 2000.71, there are certain small changes. There is a brand new entertainment widget that a user can put in the new Widgets section.

What's New with the Latest Windows 11 Insider Preview?

They can select a movie from the same and it will redirect you to the Microsoft Store. Do note that no streaming boxes support Microsoft’s platform as of now unless you own an Xbox, so don't get too excited about purchasing on your PC and watching on your TV.

Another change is in relation to the context menu, as they will now make use of acrylic material. To add to this, previews in the taskbar are finally being updated with the Windows 11 look, meaning that they will have rounded corners in comparison to the older, flatter look.

That is all that is new with this build, going through with Microsoft's standard medium of offering Windows Insider Previews that do not have anything interesting in them. But it is useful for the stability of the build. Certain bug fixes also accompany this update.

In terms of how you can update your computer or PC, If you are part of the Dev channel, you can get Windows 11 Insider Preview build 22000.71 via Windows Update. In case you wish to enroll your Windows 10 based PC to Windows 11, you can go to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Insider Program to get started.

This comes after the launch of Windows 11 and the subsequent rollout for the Dev channel Insider preview, with Microsoft revealing that the brand would offer a free upgrade to Windows 11 for users running Windows 10 on their devices.

An official release is expected later, but, for now, the only way to get the latest Windows 11 build is via the Dev channel, which necessitates the need for participation in the Windows Insider Program, which can be done in a couple of easy steps.
