Welcome to the fifth episode of Ask Windows Central, a show where we answer our communities most asked questions around Microsoft, Windows, Surface, Xbox, and the general tech industry. In today's episode, we answer questions about the Intel App Bridge, this fall's possible Surface lineup, Windows 11 compatibility, and more.

This week's episode features the following questions:

  • What will happen in October 2021 to the Windows Insiders who are currently running the Windows 11 beta and do not meet the minimum system requirements?
  • Will Intel Bridge technology be available for Windows 10, or will it be for Windows 11 only?
  • Is Microsoft planning to update the Microsoft Launcher with visuals that are closer to Windows 11, or are they likely to keep it looking more similar to a typical Android Launcher?
  • What Surface devices are we expecting for the fall?

If you have a question you'd like us to answer on the show, be sure to submit them in the comments below, or email daniel@windowscentral.com with "Ask Windows Central" in the subject line! You can also join the Windows Central Discord and ask questions in the dedicated #ask-wc channel.
