Windows 11 has received its first major update. Android apps are coming soon.

Windows 11 users will receive their first major update. Windows 11 22H2, as it is nicknamed, has started rolling out to qualified machines, which is completely on schedule as reported last month. After long weeks spent in beta, Microsoft’s annual OS update is finally available to the public.

Improvements in small touches

Less than a year after the official release of this new version of Windows, Microsoft has come armed with new features for this update. The Start menu gets customization, with support for application folders. To create one, simply move the icon of one software to another, such as a smartphone. In the Start menu, it is possible to reduce the area occupied by “recommended” elements that try to offer you software tailored to your habits.

Some very smart interface changes come with this update. For example, Microsoft continues to modernize its old applications from Windows 7 and 8. In terms of productivity, Windows 11 22H2 improves the docking of windows in a corner of the screen with suggestions for in applications to be shown face to face. Those using Windows 11 on a touchscreen will also be happy to hear that gesture support has been improved and makes it easier to switch between software with a flick of the wrist.

In terms of smarter new features, there is a strengthening of the security system with Smart App Control, which will ensure that unauthorized applications or scripts do not interfere with the experience. The US version of the system also improves accessibility settings by integrating live captioning, improved voice navigation and screen reading. Unfortunately, these new features are not available in France — unless you use your OS in English.

Android apps are coming soon

The innovations that are not included in the new version of Windows are almost more surprising than the existing ones. Thus, Android applications are still not officially available in France and the file explorer still does not have the right to browse the tab, which has been claimed for years. Good news though, both should be arriving in the coming weeks. Microsoft has officially announced that more than 20,000 Android applications are coming to the French Microsoft Store “in the coming weeks” and that the tabbed browsing system will be available after another update scheduled for October.

If the 22H2 update is not automatically offered to you, do not panic, as usual, Microsoft launches its new system in waves. If you want to install it as soon as possible, you can go to the “Settings” application and then to the “Windows Update” section to force the search for the update. If not, you can also go through the installation wizard of Windows 11. If you are using Windows 10, do not worry, the system will continue to receive updates until 2025, starting with its own version of 22H2 later in the month. There is no need to scrap your computer and buy a new one compatible with Windows 11, contrary to the message that Microsoft tried to convey by explaining “there’s never been a better time to buy a new PC“. You can keep your old machine, the planet will thank you.
