Microsoft recently released another preview build of the new operating system Windows 11. The current version is available to Insider testers in beta and is currently in the Windows Insider Program developer channel. At the same time, the development of new Windows functionality continues in the Dev Channel. Microsoft plans to publish the first preview of Windows 11 for 2022 there soon. COMPUTER BILD reveals what this means to Windows Insiders and why you should consider changing channels.
Windows Insider: Switch to the beta channel now
The latest published version 22000.160 will soon disappear from the developer channel; It will be replaced by a preview build, which provides a first glimpse at what new functionality Microsoft can offer for Windows 11 over the next year. The dev channel is once again being turned into a lab where the latest, but not always the most stable, versions of Windows are traded. If you depend on a stable Windows 11 system, you should switch to the beta channel now.
Switching to the beta channel is also mandatory for those who want to switch from the preview of Windows 11 to the final Windows release at the end of the year. Switching from the next developer to the final version is no longer possible after that.
