After rolling out the Release Preview Channel update and monthly OS build, Microsoft is now releasing a new build for insiders. Windows 11 Build 25227 is now available for Windows Insiders in the Dev Beta Channel. This is a part of the weekly beta update for Insiders. Here’s what you need to know about the Windows 11 Build 25227 Update.
Windows 11 has improved a lot since its launch last year. And beta testing is one reason Microsoft achieved it. Almost every week, Microsoft releases updates for various Windows Insider channels. These updates include some new features, improvements, and many bug fixes.
Talking about the latest Insider update from the Dev Channel, it comes with build number 25227. And along with Insider Update, Microsoft also releases ISOs for the same builds for those who want to manually update their PCs.
It also updates the Microsoft Store to version 22209. And the new Store version introduces pop-up trailers for games and movies. It is like streaming apps and YouTube where you hover your mouse and the content popup and plays automatically.
The update brings some other changes, improvements, and bug fixes. Below you can check the preview.
- We are releasing ISOs for this build – they can be downloaded here.
- This build includes improvements for update management for IT administrators and a good set of general changes and improvements.
- We’re kicking off Season 2 of Inside Windows 11 for the Windows 11 2022 Update – first episode is below on accessibility.
- A Microsoft Store update is rolling out to all Windows Insiders introducing pop-up trailers for games and movies.
Changes and Improvements
- We are trying out a small change to the Start menu where some Insiders will see badging on their user profile notifying them that certain actions need to be taken.
- We’re trying out some different positions of the header with new icons for the Widgets board to learn how to best optimize the Widgets board for our users. By using monoline icons, our goal is to bring consistent, clean, and accessible icons to communicate action and features with simple visuals for users.
- The change to support the use of clipboard history (WIN + V) on password fields that began rolling out with Build 25206 is now available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
- We made a change to allow you to contribute your voice clips to Microsoft again even if on-device speech recognition is used.
- We are rolling out a change to sync voice typing settings, Automatic punctuation and Voice typing launcher, across all devices signed in using the same Microsoft account. You can toggle this feature via Settings > Accounts > Windows backup > Remember my preferences > Accessibility. This currently only works with Microsoft accounts today with AAD support coming later.
- A new dialog will warn users of potential data loss if they elect to change the partition style of their storage drive under System > Storage > Disks & Volumes > Disk Properties.
- We’ve updated the ethernet and Wi-Fi property pages in Settings to now show gateway information in the network details summary.
Along with these changes and improvements, the update also fixes many bugs. You can head to this page to find the full changelog including bug fixes.
