Windows 11 build 22000.1279 released with Quick Assist Application

As we are about to enter this weekend, Microsoft has released some Windows 11 updates for Insiders. One of the Windows 11 builds is also available on the Release Preview channel. Windows 11 Build 22000.1279 is the latest update for Windows Insider in the Release Preview Channel.

The Release Preview channel is the last update stage for Insiders. Microsoft releases updates to the release preview channel after a gap of a few weeks unlike the Dev and Beta channel. Release Preview is considered more stable than the beta and dev updates. And after the release preview, the update will be available to the Public. The last release preview was the big 22H2 update.

The new Windows 11 build 22000.1279 is tagged as KB5019157 (original release). It is not a big update and only comes with a bunch of bug fixes apart from a new addition which is the Quick Assist application for client devices. You can check the full changelog below.

  • New! We provided the Quick Assist application for your client device.
  • We fixed some persistent update failures for the Microsoft Store.

  • We fixed an issue that affected Microsoft Direct3D 9 (D3D9). It caused D3D9 to stop working when you use Microsoft Remote Desktop.
