The company writes in its blog post:
Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.1180 and Build 22623.1180 (KB5022363) to the beta channel.
- Build 22623.1180 = New features are being developed.
- Build 22621.1180 = New features off by default.
Here’s the full list of changes and improvements, as well as bug fixes in the new beta builds:
Updates to your cloud storage in Windows 11 settings
With today’s build, the Settings app supports new visuals on your Accounts page to provide a visual overview of your cloud storage usage across Microsoft products. New visuals include a robust cloud storage bar that shows your storage usage for each product and notifies you if you’re low on storage. We have removed the quota bar from our subscription card to eliminate duplication on these visuals. Outlook attachment data will be added to your cloud storage as shown on the visual with today’s build. This change will start gradually with a small number inside, so not everyone will see it right away. You may see a warning about your storage usage; However, this does not affect your storage amount till 1 February 2023. Learn more about cloud storage Here

Fixes in build 22623.1180
[Taskbar & System Tray]
- Fixed an issue where right-clicking on certain icons in the hidden icons flyout would dismiss the flyout instead of bringing up the context menu for that icon.
- Fixed an explorer.exe crash that could occur when trying to load some app icons.
- The task view should not be shown behind the taskbar when using tablet-optimized taskbar options.
- Fixed an issue that was preventing the taskbar from appearing in Safe Mode when using the new search box option.
- When the Task Manager window is minimized and the search box is collapsed onto an icon, hovering over the icon will now display a tooltip.
