A new beta arrives at Windows 11, is the new version coming?

Little by little, users are making the leap to Windows 11. Although it is true that she is having a slower reception than expected. Microsoft’s new operating system has come with a large number of bugs and problems of all kinds, from aesthetic and performance to stability. Since its launch, several months ago, Microsoft has been correcting many of these problems while shaping what will be the first major update to this system. And, although we don’t know when it will arrive, from today it is one step closer to us thanks to the build 22000.526.

This week, Microsoft has not released a new update within the Insider Dev channel. However, it has wanted to offer a much more stable update for all users within the Beta and Release Preview branches. In this way, in the new beta of Windows 11 we can find a large number of corrections and improvements that, little by little, are shaping the new update of the operating system. Let’s see what’s new.

More news coming to Sun Valley

In addition to the fixes we just saw from build 22000.526, and many more that have been coming to the Insider Dev program, we will also see other new features in this operating system. For example, Microsoft is testing a new task manager for its operating system, which has a new design based on Fluent UI and WinUI.

Narrator voices are also being improved, making them much more natural. Another novelty that we will find is the possibility of showing the multimedia controls on the lock screen when playing music. And, of course, important fixes and performance improvements.

At the moment we do not know when this new update will arrive. However, it shouldn’t take long. We will surely have it in our hands by the spring of this 2022. And it will be, from then on, when we can see the full potential of this Windows 11.
