Microsoft Releases Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567: What’s New?
Microsoft announced Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567 on Wednesday with a few new features and improvements, lots of bug fixes, and known issues.
With this release, Windows Update will try to schedule update installations at specific times of the day – at times when greater amounts of clean energy sources (like wind, solar, and hydro) are available – which will reduce carbon emissions. You can always choose to install updates immediately by going to Settings > Windows Update and choosing “Check for updates”.
Second, this update makes it easier for you to manage your Microsoft 365 subscription. The Microsoft 365 subscription management experience is now at the top of the Accounts page in Settings. Additionally, you can now view your payment information and be notified when your payment method needs to be updated in the membership card experience.
Next, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567 added the ability to link your Android phone to your PC as part of device setup (OOBE) for Windows 11, giving you instant access to everything on your phone, right from your PC.
This update also introduces a new security feature called Smart App Control (SAC) which blocks untrusted or potentially harmful apps. The feature will be available under “App & Browser Control” in Windows Security. SAC can only be enabled on Windows devices that have performed a clean install with the latest Insider Preview build (Build 22567 and later).
Other changes and improvements include:
- The “Open With” dialog has been updated to align with Windows 11 design principles.
- Updated multi-finger touch gestures.
- The ability for Speech Typing to download speech packs from the Microsoft Store for device-based speech recognition is now available to all Dev Channel Insiders.
- New voice input commands are now available to all Dev Channel Insiders
- The redesigned Task Manager is now available to all Dev Channel Insiders.
