Microsoft seems to be working on a new “Experimental Features” option for Windows 11 Insiders on the Dev Channel. The new option was spotted by Windows enthusiast and Twitter user Albacore on the Windows Insider Program page within Settings.
However, this option isn’t working at the moment and so Lexter speculates that the new option might be a way to toggle features that don’t work well with A/B feature testing, which Microsoft It was introduced in June last year.

The experimental features option isn’t the only Dev Channel-related change Microsoft is currently working on. The company is also actively investigating why many users are complaining about slow download and install speeds for recent builds.
