Windows 11 will soon let you manage subscriptions from the Settings app

In October 2021, Microsoft released a preview build of Windows 11 with one notable change: a new section in the Settings app where users can view and manage subscriptions, such as Microsoft 365, Xbox Game Pass, and others. Several months since the initial announcement and slow rollout to subsets of Windows Insiders, Microsoft is ready to ship the new section to all Windows 11 users.

The new "Your Microsoft Account" section is one step from the stable channel. Last week, a cumulative preview update in the Beta and Release Preview channel brought the new setting page to more Windows Insiders.

Windows 11 Manage Subscription

To test the " Your Microsoft Account " page, you need to update Windows 11 to build 22000.466 (KB5008353) or newer. Once the system finishes installing the update, press Win + I to open the Settings app and go to Accounts > Your Microsoft Account.

The "Your Microsoft Account" page shows your active subscriptions and the related information, such as the current plan, pricing, renewal date, benefits, etc. You can also click a button to see payment options and order history. In a nutshell, the new Settings section mimics the "Subscription" page on the account.microsoft.com website.

A similar page you can also find in other operating systems. For example, you can manage subscriptions in the Settings app on iOS and macOS.

Unfortunately, Windows 11 does not offer a clear and distinct button to cancel an active subscription. You need to click the "Manage" button and head to the Microsoft Account website, where you can change or cancel the subscription.

Microsoft does not say when it plans to ship Windows 10 22000.466 to all users in the stable channel. You can safely assume the update should arrive somewhere next month with monthly cumulative updates.
