Windows Insiders, get ready for the latest release: Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22635.3061, now available in the Beta Channel. This update brings a host of new features, improvements, and fixes to enhance your Windows experience.
Updates and Changes: Gradual Rollout

Sharing Made Easier
For browsers like Microsoft Edge that use the Windows share window, sharing URLs directly to platforms like WhatsApp, Gmail, Facebook, and LinkedIn is now possible. This makes sharing links through the Windows share window simpler and more efficient.
“For Microsoft Edge and other browsers that invoke the Windows share window, the Windows share window now supports the ability to share URLs directly to WhatsApp, Gmail, X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, and LinkedIn.”
This update also includes several fixes aimed at improving overall reliability, ensuring a smoother user experience.
New Features for All in the Beta Channel
Richer Weather Experience on the Lock Screen
Windows 11 now offers a richer weather experience on your lock screen. This includes dynamic, interactive weather updates, providing more information as you hover over the weather experience on your lock screen.
“We are introducing a richer weather experience to your lock screen. This includes dynamic, interactive weather updates.”
Upon clicking the weather card and signing in, Microsoft Edge opens with the full forecast in MSN Weather. This enhanced weather experience is available by default, but can be changed under lock screen status settings.
As of now, this feature is being rolled out starting with EN-US only. The plan is to monitor feedback and see how it lands before pushing it out to all Insiders in the Beta Channel.
Stay tuned for more updates and improvements as Windows 11 continues to evolve and enhance your digital experience.
