Microsoft releases Windows 11 build 22624.1610 and 22621.1610 to the Beta Channel

Windows 11 users who are in the beta channel are now receiving a weekly update with various improvements and changes. The new Windows 11 update comes with build 22624.1610 which is the main build. There is also another build with features off by default and it is build 22621.1610.

The new weekly Windows 11 update for the Beta channel brings two new additions. It brings new presence sensing settings under privacy and security. It is available for devices that have support for presence sensor. Users can manage which apps should have access to it and which apps should not.

Another change is also about Settings. Under Windows Update Settings, there is a new option ‘Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available’. Turning its toggle On will allow updates more seamlessly whenever a new update is available.

There are also a couple of fixes that Microsoft has mentioned in the update notes.

Fixes in Build 22624.1610


  • Fixed an underlying issue which was causing a noticeable increase in explorer.exe crashes in the last flight for some Insiders.

Fixes for BOTH Build 22621.1610 & Build 22624.1610

  • This update addresses a compatibility issue. The issue occurs because of unsupported use of the registry.

Known issues

[Search on the Taskbar]

  • If you have the Bing button in the search box on the taskbar and you restart your computer, you may see the daily rotating search highlight for some time before getting the Bing button back

[File Explorer]

  • Insiders who have access keys in File Explorer:
  • Shift + Right click on a file or folder is not opening “Show more options”.

[Live captions]

  • On ARM64 devices, enhanced speech recognition support installed through the Language & Region settings page will require restarting live captions if you switch languages in the live captions Caption language menu.
  • [NEW] Live captions will crash on first launch due to an issue impacting registry data retrieval. A new fix is expected very soon.
  • Certain languages shown on the Language & Region settings page will indicate speech recognition support (e.g., Korean) but don’t yet have support for live captions.
  • When adding a language through the Language & Region settings page, language feature installation progress may become hidden, and you may not see install completion of “Enhanced speech recognition” (required by Live Captions). (You can use the language’s “Language options” to monitor progress.) If this happens, there may be an unexpected delay before the live caption setup experience detects this and lets you continue.
  • Captioning performance may be degraded in non-English languages and missing out-of-language filtering in non-English (United States) languages which means that incorrect captions will be shown for speech not in the caption language.

If you have joined the Beta channel on your Windows 11, you will be receiving the new update on your device. In case your device gets updates to build 22621.1610, you will have the option to upgrade to build 22624.1610. You can check for the update manually by going to Settings > Software Update.
