Microsoft just recently moved the Windows 11 Insider Preview from Dev Channel to the Beta Channel with the latest build 22000.120. This makes more Windows 10 systems eligible for a free Windows 11 upgrade directly from the Insider Preview. All you need to do now is become a Windows Insider and switch to the beta channel for a more stable Windows 11 build. Microsoft just released a new update to the Insider Preview Beta channel with the new Windows 11 22000.132 ISO build.
The latest Windows 11 22000.132 build is a small incremental update with a couple of feature requests and critical bug fixes. For one, it features Chat from Microsoft Teams in the Beta Channel. Stock apps such as the new Snipping Tool for Windows 11, Calculator app, Mail & Calendar apps have been updated as well with the new Windows 11 visuals.
Most importantly, Microsoft has acknowledged the bug where users would not get into Beta Channel, but instead, only shown and option to “Stop getting preview builds” after visiting Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program. Microsoft is working on this issue and we may see a fix in the coming days.
Meanwhile, if you want to install Windows 11 on your PC, download the latest Windows 11 ISO from below and install using a flashable USB drive.
However, Windows 11 still has eligibility criteria where your device needs to have Secure Boot and TPM 1.0 enabled in order to get the Windows 11 upgrade directly from Microsoft. Alternatively, download the latest Windows 11 22000.132 Insider Preview ISO to bypass Secure Boot and TPM requirements.
Changes and improvements in latest Windows 11 update:
- Chat from Microsoft Teams is now available for Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel.
- The new Snipping Tool for Windows 11, updated Calculator app, and updated Mail and Calendar apps are rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel
- [REMINDER] When upgrading to Windows 11 from Windows 10 or when installing an update to Windows 11, some features may be deprecated or removed. See details here.
- We’re investigating an issue where on some devices, when going to Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program, only the “Stop getting preview builds” option is visible. This prevents Insiders from selecting a channel. We have posted a workaround on Answers.
- [BETA CHANNEL] 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.
