Here are the New Features Coming to Windows 11

Windows 11 version 22H2 is arriving later this year and it won’t be a massive release, but there will be several improvements and bugs fixes.

During the Hybrid work event, Microsoft officially teased new features coming to the operating system this year.

Phishing protection

One of the new security features is enhanced phishing protection. In version 22H2, Microsoft Defender SmartScreen will be getting significant improvements and protection from the chip to the cloud by combining modern hardware and software.

Additionally, Microsoft is also testing the contextual suggestions feature. This will allow users to easily share files with their contacts.

Full screen widgets

As you’re probably aware, Windows 11 comes with a widgets board where you can read personalized news, weather updates and interact with web-based widgets of apps like Microsoft Store.

Suggested actions

Another new feature is ‘suggested actions’ which is going to be particularly useful in apps like Microsoft Teams. With this new feature, you can highlight a date in a Teams message and Windows will suggest actions.

For example, if you highlight a date, you’ll see a recommendation to create an event in Microsoft Calendar for that day.
