Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 Build 20221 to the Dev Channel

-

Yesterday, Microsoft released an update for the Insiders in Release Preview and Beta channel. Now, its time for Dev Channel, so the company rolls out build 20221 to it. The build includes a noticeable change, a Meet Now icon in Windows 10 Taskbar, where users can create and join a Skype meeting.

Moreover, the build comes with bug fixes and improvements for Windows Update, Action Center, Start Menu, and WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). Here are the feature, fixes, and improvements included in it:

Introducing Meet Now in the Windows 10 Taskbar

Earlier this year we introduced Meet Now in Skype. Meet Now makes it easy to connect with anyone in as little as two clicks for free and each call can last up to 24 hours. Today, we’re excited to share that we are extending this capability in Windows 10 by bringing Meet Now right to the taskbar. You can now easily set up a video call and reach friends and family in an instant by clicking on the Meet Now icon in the notification area (system tray) of the taskbar in Windows 10. No sign ups or downloads needed.

This feature is rolling out to a subset of Insiders in the Dev Channel at first, to help us quickly identify issues that may impact performance and reliability. Rest assured they will be gradually rolled out to everyone in the Dev Channel.

Changes and Improvements

  • As some Insiders may have noticed, we’re adding a notification to let you know when an app registers to run at startup (Settings > Apps > Startup Apps).
  • With most of the launches of the People app coming directly from within the Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10, the People app no longer appears as a standalone app in Start. It remains as an inbox app and can be launched to manage your contacts from the button in the Mail and Calendar apps.

Fixes

  • We fixed an issue where the new Manage Disks and Volumes section in Settings wasn’t blocking the ability to change the drive letter of the system volume.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Start menu, and Action Center being totally transparent when certain apps were open in the background.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in a crash when opening the Power menu in Start while running Magnifier at a high zoom level.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in a virtual desktop thumbnail in Task View showing an empty desktop even after moving an app over to that desktop.
  • We fixed an issue when typing with an IME into text fields in certain apps that could result in input no longer being accepted.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the Chinese Pinyin IME candidate pane getting stuck on the first letter when typing into certain games.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Windows Update getting stuck at “Downloading – 0%” for a long time.
  • We fixed seeing generic errors when using wsl --install in the Windows Subsystem for Linux.
  • We fixed a bug where the Linux kernel would not be installed when using wsl --install in the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

The build also has some known issues, which you can check in the release notes at Window’s Blog website. if you are not an Insider and want to new feature updates before the official roll out to the general public, you can register your Windows 10 under Windows Insider Program.
