However, though the build is from a development branch, it still does not bring any major features. The firm is still fixing a bunch of bugs in the release – interestingly more than it is in the Beta and Release Preview channel builds.

Story Highlights

  • It is a new week, which means it is time for a new Windows 11 build. Today, Microsoft is releasing build 22468 to the Dev channel. As usual, this is part of the rs_prerelease branch, meaning that it is not tied to any specific Windows 11 release. Features and fixes made as part of builds from this branch may or may not make it to the OS in the upcoming release.

  • While bug fixes are welcome, what is yet to be made available is support for running Android apps. The firm promised to bring Android apps via the Amazon Appstore to Windows 11, back during the June launch event. However, the feature was not ready in time for version 21H2 that releases next month. The firm announced this week that the Epic Games Store will also be making it to the Microsoft Store, thanks to its new store policies.
