Microsoft Officially Announces Windows 11

Happy Windows 11 Day. After weeks of hype, leaks, and talks worldwide, Microsoft has finally announced Windows 11 making its new version of the operating system official.

Planned to release for the general public by the holidays, the news certainly leaves us with no speculations. We can expect it sometime around late November. But before that, we are lucky enough to see a slew of public betas, coming next week.

The new update of Microsoft 11 which is also named as “Next Generation” of Windows has evolved with a fresh lively interface and centrally placed Start menu comfortable with mobile app development SDK. With a slew of other advancements, here we will take a look at the forgoing major point launches and features of Windows 11.

A Fresh Look and Feel

Windows 11 brings to its users a new interface with a fresh setup screen, and look and feel across all core Windows elements. With rounded corners on menus and windows, the new look gives the same feel as the recent iPad release. Also, the centrally-placed Start menu- with no Live Tiles as in Win-10 gives it a touch of modernity.

New Experience From Sound To Widgets

Windows 11 has matched up the radiance as it brings on front new sounds and alerts, fresh startup sound, and smooth gesture upgrades. Whereas, new themes, new wallpapers, and improved dark mode with updated widget experience are yet another game-changer.

Snap Layouts to Maximize Productivity

Opening the doors for an optimized multi-tasking experience, Windows 11 has introduced a new user experience called “Snap layout”. Its maximize button allows users to split the active screens between multiple areas of the desktop. These layouts allow users to shrink multiple screens and simultaneously open when in need- simply by hovering the mouse over the maximize button.

In addition, these Snap layouts are memorized by Windows 11 and it creates a Snap group for all the layouts which can be used for future access.

Windows 11 has worked on keyboard enhancement in its new version. Here’s a sneak peek at its efforts and updates:

  • Included GIFs integration from Tenor to improve the touch keyboard.
  • A preloaded virtual keyboard is free to be placed anywhere on the screen.
  • Voice typing and voice commands to ease typing.
  • A universal mute and unmute functionality to help people make virtual calls conveniently.
  • A Desktop Share feature to let users share their windows with people connected over a virtual meeting.

Improved Version of Microsoft Store

With new search capabilities and improved design, Windows 11 has overhauled its preloaded app store. This will give app developers a new edge to increase their app reach.

The Behind the Scene Updates

Overall, Windows has delivered a fabulous experience by making the functioning smoother and faster than ever– that too with remarkable battery life. Thus, providing a seamless experience to users at the front end.

The operating system- also considered the backbone of global businesses- had all the hopes pinned on its new release. Eventually, it has done full justice to meet all the expected and thrilling updates users were looking for.
