Microsoft is rolling out its next anticipated Windows 11 update into Release Preview today. The preview is on its final build before it releases to all Windows users but if you want to gain access to it early, you simply need to turn on “Release Preview” access on Windows through the Insider option.

The new Windows 11 update comes with some cool new features for the operating system. For starters, it adds HDR background support for wallpapers and a new energy-saving mode. Microsoft is also implementing Sudo into Windows and Rust into the Windows kernel.

The update is currently listed as Windows 11 24H2. When it comes to the HDR background support, it now lets users apply JXR images to their desktop wallpaper. These wallpapers will then accurately display HDR content if your screen or monitor has it enabled.

The new energy-saver mode is also arriving with this update. It lowers energy consumption by reducing system performance to save battery on notebooks. Microsoft is also adding support to desktop PCs. The company says users can reduce the amount of power a gaming rig uses, for example.

When it comes to File Explorer, users will now be able to create 7-zip and TAR archives directly from the browser. It is also getting a new Quick Settings menu that appears above the taskbar.

Windows 11 is also improving the Voice Clarity on the platform. The new AI-powered Voice Clarity feature is being updated for devices without neural processing unit chips. Voice Clarity will now remove background noise when you’re on a call or recording audio. You also won’t need a specific AI-driven chip to use the feature.

Microsoft is also tweaking the built-in Copilot assistant with the Windows 11 24H2 update. The features is now its own dedicated button on the right-hand side of the system tray. Users can easily access it and use the AI-driven assistant while they go about their day. It can perform certain tasks, understand commands and even tweak Windows settings with a few prompts.

If you want to access this new feature be sure to enable the Windows Insider Program on your PC through the system settings. Keep in mind that it will launch soon for the public so you can always just wait until then.
