Microsoft is working around the clock on finalizing the following major feature update for Windows 11, and while the company has to date remained tight-lipped as to whenever a final build could be chosen, it looks like this phase was already reached.
Microsoft watcher Zac Bowden revealed on Twitter that Windows 11 build 22621, which has recently been shipped to insiders in the Beta channel, may be the final one that goes love users out there as version 22H2.
Furthermore, it seems that Microsoft plans to sign off this develop May 20, and when nothing big happens in the meantime, build 22621, obviously with a lot more refinements, will be the one to go live to production devices later this year.
Windows 11 rollout still underway
In the meantime, however, Microsoft is still focusing on bringing Windows 11 to all eligible devices.
The company originally planned to reach the worldwide availability through the summer of the year, but back in January, it said the rollout was already ahead of the schedule.
What this means is all eligible devices should get Windows 11 through the summer, so the global availability should be reached any day now.
“The upgrade offer to Windows 11 is entering its final phase of availability and it is designated for broad deployment for eligible devices. Since the launch of Windows 11 in October, we have seen strong demand and preference for Windows 11 with people upgrading their eligible PCs at twice the rate we had for Windows 10. According to this trend, we are advancing the interest rate of the rollout faster than we originally announced and entering the ultimate phase of availability for Windows 11 in front of our initial plan of mid-2022,” Microsoft said in late January.
No new update around the rollout was provided since then.
