Windows 11: The first major update is here
Windows 11 is actually still very young and has already been pushed to all PCs for a few weeks. The update is now being offered to me, although Microsoft has always said before that you can only expect it in the middle of 2022 if you don’t have a new PC. So everything is going a little faster. However, development continues and the innovations announced at the end of January are now being rolled out to everyone (Source: Windows Blog). including those Android apps you can get from the Amazon App Store in Windows 11. You can see how this works in the video above.
The only problem at the moment is that this functionality is for now intended for US users. In Germany we cannot access and install Android apps on Windows 11 PCs.
Microsoft expands the taskbar in Windows 11
Microsoft has also attached great importance to the further development of the taskbar in Windows 11. Must More and more functions can be accessed directly:
- For example, you can now disable and re-enable the microphone in a call from the taskbar.
- In addition, certain content can be shared instantly.
- The weather widget now moves to the left side where the Windows button is in older versions. If you hover your mouse over it, you can see more information in many UI elements.
- The time and date are displayed on each desktop when using multiple monitors.
Notepad and Media Player revised
Notepad and media player have been completely redesigned. For example, the text editor now also offers a dark mode. In the media player, you should now be able to enjoy your videos and music better. In the future, Microsoft wants to provide Windows 11 with more innovative functions.
