Changes and improvements in build 22624.1610


  • We’re introducing new presence sensor privacy settings and APIs. If you have a device with compatible presence sensors, you can now manage your privacy and block certain apps from accessing those sensors. No image or metadata is collected by Microsoft and all processing is done locally on the device hardware to maximize privacy. You will find these settings under Settings > Privacy & Security > Presence Sensing Here if your device supports it.. App developers with devices with compatible presence sensors can target apps to request and read user presence information after requesting human presence capability. Learn more about the API. Here.

Insiders will start seeing a new toggle under Settings > Windows Update to “get the latest updates as they become available.” This new toggle is intended to be used in the beta channel to make internals more seamless Qualification package. Beta channel insiders who are on build 22621 and toggle it will be updated to build 22624 via the Embalment package. Those within the Beta channel who are already on Build 22624 and toggle it will see a “Windows Configuration Update” offered by Windows Update designed to help us ensure That this new toggle is properly connected to our backend services.
