Windows 10 version 21H1 is a new feature update scheduled for release in April or May 2021. This update brings new features and security updates that Microsoft say will improve the overall user experience. So, here’s what to expect with the new update and how business users can try it now.
Windows Hello Multicamera Support
Microsoft is introducing a new feature for Windows Hello, its biometrics recognition application. This feature will allow users to set an external camera as the default for Windows Hello when both external and internal cameras are present.
Security & Remote Work Improvements
This release will include an update to Windows Defender Application Guard that will improve opening speeds for certain documents, amongst other performance improvements.
To support remote workers, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) is also getting performance updates. Microsoft says these improvements will support their users’ “most pressing needs.”
How To Install Windows 10 Version 21H1
This upgrade is currently available for commercial pre-release validation. That means that businesses can install the update on commercial devices, which Microsoft defines as a PC not running the Home edition of Windows 10, is being managed by an IT administrator (via Microsoft Endpoint Manager or a third-party MDM tool), or if the device has a volume license key, a CommericalID, or is joined to a domain. So, if you’re a business user, you can access Windows 10 version 21H1 using Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and Azure Marketplace, or you can download an ISO file.
