Microsoft has released another new Windows 11 Insider build, this one 22621.1616 and 22624.1616. The new set of builds don’t offer a lot of new features for Beta Channel Insiders, but here we are.

Included in the 22624 version of this build (the “new features rolling out” one) are new languages added to Live Captions, specifically Danish, English (Ireland), French (Canada), Korean, and Portuguese (Portugal).

Also added is an update to the 22624.1610 addition of a “get updates as soon as they are available” toggle:

  • Turning on the new toggle under Settings > Windows Update for “getting the latest updates as soon as they are available” introduced in the previous build should now offer a “Windows configuration update” offered via Windows Update for Insiders on Build 22624. This update is designed to help us make sure this new toggle is connected to our backend services correctly. A Update Stack Package update (version 413.2122.0) is required.

From there, there’s a whole list of fixes and known issues, be sure to check out the Windows Insider blog post for all the details
