If you're a Windows Insider on the Fast ring, there's another new build for you to check out today. Windows 10 20H1 preview build 18922 is now rolling out via Windows Update for Insiders, bringing with it the usual batch of general bug fixes and improvements. Also tagging along are enhancements to the language settings menu and Feedback Hub.
Here's a look at all of what's new.
What's new in 18922
- Language Settings Improvements: The Global Language Experience team has improvements in Language Settings to make it easier for you to see the current state of your language settings at a glance. The new overview section lets you quickly know which languages are selected as default for their Windows display, Apps & websites, Regional format, Keyboard, and Speech. If everything looks as expected you can quickly move on, you can click one of the tiles which will take you to where you need to be to change that selection.
- Feedback Hub updates: Based on your feedback, we're updating the Feedback Hub with a new feature called Find Similar Feedback! When you go to log a new piece of feedback, you'll now see a section that looks to see if there's any existing feedback that sounds similar to yours. You can now choose to automatically link your feedback to that existing feedback (rather than creating a new piece of feedback). This is currently in the process of rolling out to Insiders with version 1.1904.1584.0 – we look forward to you trying it out!
