Microsoft announces the next Windows 10 feature update



After a lot of rumors and gossip about it in the past months, Microsoft officially announced yesterday, the next feature update for Windows 10 known as the 21H1 version of the operating system.


The 21H1 version or build 19043, will be just a minor version like the previous 20H2 update with no major features or changes to the OS, but only some bug fixes and business-oriented features, and it will be offered to the users and Microsoft business customers when it's ready this spring via Windows Update as a normal monthly cumulative update, and it's likely in the next May according to some informed sources.


While the feature update is not yet ready, Microsoft offers it to the insiders on the Beta channel to test it from now via what Microsoft calls the “seeker” experience in Windows Update, which means that Insiders will need to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and choose to download and install 21H1 to test it, and Microsoft said that new features will be offered in future Windows Insider Preview Builds as they are ready, but as I said before, you should not expect any major new features with this version, as Microsoft will likely keep all the beautiful things until the next feature update or Version 21H1 code-named 'Sun Valley' expected to release next fall, and the build Microsoft releases today to the Beta testers (Build 19043.844) has not too much offer to the public users but only three business-oriented features, one for Windows Hello multi-camera support, which will allow PCs to set to use an external Hello peripheral when docked to a larger display, the second one is for the Windows Defender Application Guard that got some performance improvements including an optimization to the document opening scenario times, and the last one is a performance improvement update to the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Group Policy Service (GPSVC) to support remote work scenarios.
