The latest Windows 11 2023 Update (version 23H2, build 22631) is now available to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview channel as an optional update. If you wish to install a new feature update for Windows 11, you can manually check for updates in Windows Update and opt-in. However, please note that the update will only appear if your device meets the minimum system requirements.


As previously announced, Windows 11 2023 Update will be based on the same code base as version 22H2. Therefore, version 23H2 will be distributed as a small cumulative update that will simply enable improvements and new features. Cumulative updates for both 22H2 and 23H2 versions will be identical. The official release of Windows 11 2023 Update is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.

Today's update includes everything new from the Moment 4 release, and also includes following changes.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams - Free (replacement for the Chat feature) is pinned to the taskbar by default. It can be unpinned like any other application on the taskbar. With its help, insiders will be able to send text messages, create calls and video conferences in a few clicks. The compact size of the window allows you to place it anywhere on the screen, which helps you keep track of active conversations.
