Windows 10

Microsoft has rolled out Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21313 (RS_PREELEASE) to Windows Insiders in the Dev channel. It is to be noted that Build 21313 will not be offered to ARM64 devices due to app compatibility issues. The product team is working hard to provide updates to ARM64 devices after the issue is fixed.

The Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21313 has expanded news and interests to more languages and regions. The company has expanded the news and interest experience on the Taskbar to a wider set of International languages and markets. Prior to the release of Preview Build 21313, the news and interests were made available only in United States, Canada, Great Britain, India, and Australia.

The news content, weather forecasts, sports, and finance updates will be based on your location anywhere in the world. The News and Interests module will automatically detect your language and location, which enable localized experience of content from local publishers and data providers. The module is not available in China and will be rolled out to all Windows Insiders globally.

With Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21313, Microsoft Edge Legacy will be replaced by the new Microsoft Edge. The Microsoft Edge promises world-class performance with improved privacy and productivity features. The update has modernized Input Method Editor (IME) candidate window design. The Input Method Editor is redesigned with a modern design with Fluent Design principles, which includes an acrylic background, a new selection visual and dark theme support. Microsoft has adjusted the font size in the Candidate Windows UI in such a way to minimize the intrusiveness while securing visibility.
