Insiders in the Beta Channel get more fixes to test.
What you need to know
- Windows 11 build 22000.176 is rolling out to the Beta Channel.
- It includes only fixes and under the hood enhancements.
For the Insiders who have decided to remain on the shipping build of Windows 11, Microsoft has a new cumulative update for you with more fixes and improvements to test. Today's build is 22000.176 and features improvements to Bluetooth LE and more.
Microsoft has similtanously released a new full build for Insiders in the Dev Channel too, taking development back to the active branch where builds can be less stable. Make sure you drop to the Beta ring if you wish to stay on the shipping build of Windows 11!
Here's the full changelog:
- We fixed an issue with paired Bluetooth LE devices that was causing an increase in Bluetooth reliability issues and bugchecks after resume from hibernate or when Bluetooth was turned off.
- We mitigated an issue that was resulting some users hitting in an unexpected error when trying to take pictures with certain USB cameras.
- When setting up Windows Hello in OOBE, we've added a new link to learn more about Windows Hello.
- Arabic and Hebrew languages will now allow changing Teams Settings.
- We fixed the issue where if you were making an outgoing call, there was no ring tone, but the user interface would show that the call is getting connected.
- We fixed the issue where the install button might not be functional in limited scenarios.
- We also fixed an issue where rating and reviews were not available for some apps.
And here's the list of known issues:
- We're investigating reports from Insiders in the Beta Channel where after upgrading to Windows 11, they are not seeing the new Taskbar and the Start menu doesn't work. To workaround this if you are impacted, please try going to Windows Update > Update history, uninstalling the latest cumulative update for Windows, and the reinstall it by checking for updates.
- We're working on a fix for an issue that is causing some Surface Pro X devices to bug check with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.
- In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
- System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
- The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
- After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the "Windows Explorer" process, and open the search panel again.
- Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
- The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
- Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
- We continue to work to improve search relevance in the Store.
- Within Windows Sandbox, the language input switcher does not launch after clicking the switcher icon on the Taskbar. As a workaround, users can switch their input language via any of the following hardware keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift, Ctrl + Shift, or Win + Space (the third option is available only if Sandbox is full-screened).
- Within Windows Sandbox, the IME context menu does not launch after clicking the IME icon in the Taskbar.
- There is an issue where some Insiders may be some missing translations from their user experience for a small subset of languages running the latest Insider Preview builds. To confirm if you have been impacted, please visit this Answers forum post and follow the steps for remediation.
