The new Suggested Actions feature in build 25115 will present options when the user highlights certain text or data. For example, if you highlight a phone number, a popup will appear offering quick actions for making a phone call in Teams or Skype. If you highlight a date, it'll present quick actions for adding an event to your calendar.

Here's the changelog for today's build:

  • Windows Insiders can try out a new feature in this build for making everyday tasks quicker in Windows 11 through inline suggested actions. When you copy a date, time, or phone number, Windows will suggest actions relevant to you such as creating calendar events or making phone calls with your favorite apps.
  • We updated the icons in the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) on this build.
  • Updated the underlying speech platform to improve voice activity detection for voice access, live captions, and voice typing, as well as address some issues with how punctuation is recognized.
  • Fixed an issue related to loading the system tray icons in Settings > Personalization > Taskbar which could cause Settings to crash when opening that page recently. This issue may have also led to some explorer.exe crashes for impacted Insiders.
  • Fixed an issue leading to Insiders seeing error 0x800703E6 when copying files from Google Drive.
  • We made another change to help improve the performance of loading Home.
  • Fixed an issue where if you had ever opened the context menu, doing CTRL + ALT + DEL and cancelling would lead to explorer.exe crashing.
  • Fixed a sporadic explorer.exe crash when closing File Explorer windows.
  • Fixed an issue where if Settings suspended, it could lock up explorer.exe in certain cases.
  • Improved how Narrator reads out remaining space available in System > Storage.
  • Fixed some issues related to access key use in Task Manager, including that you weren't able to directly press ALT + without first releasing the ALT key, and that displaying the access keys wouldn't work after having used and dismissed them.
  • If the CPU reaches 100%, the CPU column header should no longer unexpectedly become unreadable in dark mode.
  • Fixed an issue which could result in Smart App Control unexpectedly blocking correctly signed applications.
  • Addressed an issue which was leading to Memory Integrity unexpectedly getting turned off in some cases after rebooting.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Update Stack Package to show install error 0xc4800010.
