Microsoft Releases Windows 11 Build 22621 to Insiders in the Beta Channel
If you are one of the Insiders in the Beta Channel, you will see a new Windows 11 build in Windows Update. This new flight is titled Windows 11 Insider Preview 22621.1 (ni_release). At the same time, the Dev Channel also gets a new Windows 11 preview build: Windows 11 Build 25115.
You can see that the build number in the Dev Channel is higher than the one in the Beta Channel. The flights in the Beta Channel match the upcoming Windows 11 22H2. The builds in the Dev Channel are preparing for Windows 11 23H2 (Windows 11 Sun Valley 3), which will be rolled out to the public on the next year. This means that the builds in the Dev Channel are not stable now. If you still want to experience the stable preview builds, you should switch to the Beta Channel immediately before installing Windows 11 build 25115.
The build watermark is still not showing up at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop after install build 22621. But Microsoft will bring it back in a future build.
This new Windows 11 build only has a small set of fixes that can improve the overall experience for Insiders in the Beta Channel.
