Windows Share improvements. The Share pane now supports sharing using WhatsApp. If you do not have the app already installed, there is a shortcut available for you to download it from the Store. This feature is being rolled out gradually, and Microsoft has mentioned plans to extend this experience to other apps as well.

Microsoft Store improvements. The Store app is gaining several new features, including Install as you browse, which allows you to mouse over an item and buy or install it without navigating to its landing page. Additionally, there are improved instant game discoverability and some performance enhancements. These improvements are also being rolled out to those on Canary and Dev.

That’s all for now.
