Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22635.2850: What’s New and What’s Important to Know
Windows Insiders, rejoice! The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22635.2850 (KB5033453) has been released to the Beta Channel. This release brings a host of new features, improvements, and fixes that are sure to enhance your Windows experience.
The new build comes with an enablement package that puts all Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel on the same build (Build 22635.xxxx). This package allows Insiders to gradually receive new features as they are rolled out. To be among the first to receive these updates, simply turn on the toggle in Settings > Windows Update.
“For Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel who want to be the first to get features gradually rolled out to you, you can turn ON the toggle to get the latest updates as they are available.”
Windows Share Update
Windows Share now supports sharing with WhatsApp, a feature that will be expanded to other apps over time. If you don’t have WhatsApp installed, you can choose to install it directly from the Windows share window.
Microsoft Store Update
Microsoft Store has been updated with a new feature that allows you to install products directly while browsing. This feature aims to reduce the number of clicks required to install new apps. Additionally, the Microsoft Store has introduced a dedicated page for instant games, making them easier to discover. Performance improvements have also been made to enhance your browsing experience.
“Introducing another quick way to get your favorite products: you can now install directly while browsing.”
What’s Important to Know
Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel will receive updates and new features gradually. Keeping the toggle off will still let you receive new features, but at a slower pace. The Beta Channel previews experiences that are closer to what will be shipped to general customers. Therefore, some features may appear in the Beta Channel before the Dev Channel.
Windows encourages feedback on these updates via the Feedback Hub (WIN + F) under Microsoft Store. Your input helps shape the future of Windows, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts!
