On October 5, 2021, Microsoft launched Windows 11 and new Surface computers that come with latest operating system preinstalled. To help customers get the most out of their Surface computers, Microsoft offers a special Surface app on the Microsoft Store. Recently, the application received a big update with 36 new languages and a couple of new features. Here is how Microsoft describes its Surface app.
"Get the most out of your Surface. The Surface app provides you with customization options and opportunity to learn more about your Surface device. Give feedback on your experience so we can keep making it better. Safety, warranty, and regulatory info is there whenever you need it."

As for firmware updates for Surface devices themselves, it appears that Microsoft slowed down the firmware update rollouts. The AMD-based Surface Laptop 4 is yet to receive its first update since its launch in April 2021. Also, the latest Surface Pro X, Surface Go 3, Surface Pro 8, and Surface Laptop Studio went on sale without "day-one" patches.
