There is a new test version of Windows 11: Build 22000.132 can now be installed by Windows Insiders in the Beta and Developer channels. Microsoft also released the first updates for the Windows 11 inbox apps, destroying one of my greatest hopes.
By that, I mean anyone who hoped that Windows 11 would bring a fundamentally revised mail app will be disappointed, there is only a little round corner cosmetics.
However, I assume that the days of this app are numbered anyway and that Microsoft will bring a replacement PWA based on the web version of Outlook in the foreseeable future.
The calculator also gets a visual update with round corners and round number and function buttons.
On the other hand, the new screenshot tool in Windows 11 is exciting, it replaces both the Snipping Tool, which has remained practically unchanged since Windows 7, and the “Cut and Sketch” app known on Windows 10. In addition to a modern look and feel, the new Snipping Tool now also adapts to the Windows 11 colour scheme.
According to Microsoft, the new apps will first go to the Insider in the Developer Channel, but the updates have not yet arrived here.
Apart from this, the new Windows 11 test build 22000.132 contains some bug fixes, and the native Teams integration is now also available in the beta channel. As usual, the full changelog is available on the Windows Blog.
