Great news for Windows users! Microsoft has just announced the release of Windows 11 Build 23506a as part of the Windows Insider Program Dev channel. This means it’s available for testers to try out and provide feedback.
One of the exciting new features in this update is the improved “Battery Usage” menu, which will now be called “Energy & Battery Usage.” This change may seem small, but it will make a big difference in users’ daily lives. Now, when you go to System > Battery and Power, you’ll not only see your total power consumption but also your computer emissions data. This is especially useful for laptop users, as it allows you to easily switch between viewing power consumption by different apps and monitoring your battery level. You can access this feature by simply clicking on the selector on the same screen.
Along with the battery management improvements, Windows 11 Build 23506 testers will also get a sneak peek at some other exciting new features. These include passwordless experiences with Windows Hello for Business, warnings when copying and pasting dangerous passwords, improved local file sharing with a new search field, more suggested contacts, and Outlook sharing, as well as new post-OOBE (Out of Box Experience) experiences that allow you to personalize your Windows 11 experience right from the very first launch.
In addition, Microsoft has made Windows Copilot, which was previously available in Build 23493, now accessible to all Windows Insiders in the Dev channel. You may need to restart your computer to see this feature in action.
So, if you’re a Windows Insider, get ready to explore these exciting new features and make managing your Windows 11 experience even easier!
