If you have many Bluetooth devices such as speakers, headphones, TVs, mouse, keyboard and other input stuff, etc, you may find the current way to manage they annoying. Windows 11 makes you use the Settings > System > Bluetooth and devices page (ms-settings:bluetooth) to add or unpair a device. Microsoft is aware of this inconvenience, and finally tries to get rid of it.

Starting in Build 22563, you can use the update Quick Settings pane. Click on either the Network, Battery, or sound icon at the right corner of the taskbar since it is one big button.

Besides, build 22653 includes two hidden features. The first one is Stickers that the user can place on their desktop. Another one is "Smart Clipboard ". You can learn more about both here. Also check the full build announcement here.
