What's new in Windows 11 Build 26063

Wi-Fi 7

In accordance with the announcement of the Wi-Fi Alliance, support for Wi-Fi 7 technology for consumer access points has appeared in Windows Insider builds for the Dev and Canary channels. Wi-Fi 7, also known as IEEE 802.11be Extremely High Throughput (EHT), promises to revolutionize wireless connectivity, offering users unprecedented speed, stability and efficiency.

Wi-Fi 7 is based on Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E technologies. It improves all aspects of wireless connections, including transmission speed, latency, efficiency, reliability, power, etc.

Key features of Wi-Fi 7

  • Multi-Link operation (MLO) allows devices to simultaneously use multiple bands (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and/or 6 GHz) to avoid network congestion and ensure uninterrupted connectivity.
  • Ultra-wide 320 MHz bandwidth in the 6 GHz band doubles the speed of data transfer to your devices and opens up new possibilities for high-bandwidth applications such as AR/VR.
  • 4096-QAM modulation increases data transfer rates by 20% and improves the quality of video streaming, video conferencing and other applications.

Wi-Fi 7 offers multi-gigabit speeds on Windows PCs, up to 4x faster than Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, and nearly 6x faster than Wi-Fi 5. In addition, latency is significantly reduced, improving responsiveness and performance in real-time applications such as gaming and video conferencing. However, it should be noted that performance may vary depending on the manufacturer and device specifications.

To take advantage of Wi-Fi 7, you will need a Wi-Fi 7 capable consumer access point and PC.

Below is a screenshot from a PC running this build of Windows while connected to a home Wi-Fi 7 hotspot.
