What’s New in Windows 11

In terms of usability, Windows 11 has basically the same features as its predecessor. The company therefore says that users will continue to have a “calm and creative” space, with “a fresh Start menu and new ways to connect with favorite people, news, games and content”.

The apps will be accessed quite easily in version 11, thanks to “tools like Snap layouts, desktops and a new, more intuitive reconnect experience”.

Microsoft Teams, chat service, calling, sharing, video conferencing and workspace, will be permanently integrated into Windows 11.

The Microsoft Edge browser, in its version 2, will obviously also integrate the operating system. It will bring many configurable Widgets, giving access to news and entertainment compatible with user profiles.

Anyone who expected a version that would provide greater integration with the applications on your Android device will be frustrated. But it is expected that by 2022 some Android apps will be available on Windows 11.
