Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23612: What’s New?
Windows Insiders, it’s time to get excited! The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23612 is now available to the Dev Channel. With a host of new features, this build promises to enhance your user experience.
Richer Weather Experience on the Lock Screen
One of the major updates is a richer weather experience on your lock screen. This feature offers dynamic, interactive weather updates. As you hover over the weather card on your lock screen, you’ll see more detailed information. Tapping or clicking on the card opens a full forecast in MSN Weather via Microsoft Edge.
“We are introducing a richer weather experience to your lock screen. This includes dynamic, interactive weather updates.”
Don’t worry about making any changes if you already use the Weather feature under Settings. This new experience will be on by default and can be modified under lock screen status.
Extended Languages and Multi-display Support for Voice Access
Another significant update is the extended language support for voice access. This includes support for French (France and Canada), German, and Spanish (Spain and Mexico). If voice access doesn’t find a matching speech model for your display language, you can still use it in English (United States).
“We have extended voice access to support other languages such as French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain) and Spanish (Mexico).”
Windows 11 now supports all voice access features on multiple displays. This includes number and grid overlays, which were previously unavailable on secondary displays. The grid overlay feature allows you to interact with the screen you’re currently using and quickly switch to another display.
Custom Commands for Voice Access
Custom commands for voice access have also been introduced. You can use either the alphabet or NATO phonetic in your command to shift focus to another display. This feature allows for a more seamless multi-display experience.
With these new features and updates, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23612 is set to enhance your Windows experience. So, get ready to explore and enjoy!
