Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.601 and Build 22622.601 (KB5017384) to the Beta Channel.
Build 22622.601 = New features rolling out.
Build 22621.601 = New features off by default.
As a reminder, Insiders who landed in the group with new features turned off by default (Build 22621.xxxx) can check for updates and choose to install the update that will have features rolling out (Build 22622.xxx).
Fixes for BOTH Build 22621.601 & Build 22622.601
We fixed the issue where clicking the network icon on the Lock screen would not work and would crash the Lock screen.
We updated the start date for daylight saving time in Chile. It will start on September 11, 2022 instead of on September 4, 2022.
We reduced the power that the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol uses on some devices when they are in Sleep mode.
We fixed an issue that affects Dual SIM calling. If you select no SIM on your phone and initiate a call on your device, Dual SIM functionality does not work.
We’re looking into reports that audio stopped working for some Insiders in recent Beta Channel builds.
About the Beta Channel
The Beta Channel will be the place we preview experiences that are closer to what we will ship to our general customers. Because the Dev and Beta Channels represent parallel development paths from our engineers, there may be cases where features and experiences show up in the Beta Channel first. However, this does not mean every feature we try out in the Beta Channel will ship. We encourage Insiders to read this blog post that outlines the ways we’ll try things out with Insiders in both the Dev and Beta Channels.
