Ever since Microsoft released the 22H2 update last year, the focus has shifted from 21H2 as most users have already updated to 22H2. However, Microsoft is still rolling out the 21H2 update every month for users who are still on previous builds. A new Windows 11 21H2 update is here with build 22000.1641.
The new build is a non-security preview update and part of the monthly update. Microsoft released the last 21H2 a week ago and it was a public build. Also, preview builds are optional and you can choose not to install them.
The new Windows 11 build 22000.1641 is tagged as KB5022905. And it comes with some new features and improvements. Some highlights of the update are advanced auto-learning feature for facial recognition, and many important bug fixes. You can check the official changelog below.
