Windows 11 has finally hit the Release preview channel and it can now be tested on the primary devices as long as you’ve compatible drivers installed. Note that a little bit of tweaking is left, so there may be minor issues in Windows 11 Build 22000.194 – which is being shipped to testers in Release Preview.

Microsoft is planning to improve the overall experience of the Windows 11 version 21H2 in the coming weeks as part of the tech firm’s normal servicing cadence. It is worth noting that Windows 11 is currently being offered to Release preview testers via Microsoft’s seeker scheme.

Windows 11 rollout plans

Those who have compatible hardware will be able to get Windows 11 upgrade as a simple Windows Update, so the process would be straightforward. However, Windows 11 size is likely to be around 3GB as it delivers a lot of changes than Windows 10 feature updates released in the last few years.

Windows 11 includes a new look for the Start menu and a better way of managing notifications for all apps.

As you’re probably aware, redesigned Start Menu is one of the biggest changes coming to the desktop operating system with Windows 11. Microsoft isn’t done improving the Start Menu experience and it’s working on a new feature called ‘Sign-in options’ which will appear above the power options.

Microsoft officials have confirmed that several updates will be released after October 5 to fix the remaining issues in the operating system.

Even if your device is ready for Windows 11, you may not see this feature update on October 5. The update will be initially offered to select devices only. If you can’t wait for Windows 11, you’ll be able to download and install it manually using programs like Media Creation Tool and Update Assistant.

If the slow rollout proves successful then it may be a few weeks before we see Windows 11 for more devices.
