10.0.19041.671 - Update for Windows Feature Experience Pack for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based systems
Microsoft is using Windows Feature Experience Pack to deliver new features to older releases of the OS. Here's how it supposed to work.
Last week, Microsoft has officially announced Windows 10, version 21H1. It is now available in the Beta channel, but you have to opt in to receive it. It is a small, service pack-like release that doesn't include plenty of new features. Windows Feature Experience Pack will bring new features from newer Windows 10 releases to its older versions, providing users with useful additions without them having to upgrade their devices to a newer Windows 10 version. In fact, such features may already be present in the OS, but remain hidden. This was the case with Windows 10 version 1903 and version 1909. The latter was just an 'enablement' package that unblocked hidden features in version 1903 that were already delivered with cumulative updates. The same was repeated with version 2004 and version 20H2. For version 21H1 which will be a minor update despite coming in the first half of the year, it'll be the same. The big feature update, version 21H2, will arrive later in 2021.
