Windows 11 beta channel (KB5026443) adds WPA3 support to PhoneLink Instant Hotspot.


Windows 11 Insider Preview

Today, Microsoft released 22621.1830 and 22631.1830 (KB5026443) to the beta channel for Windows 11 Insiders. The company writes in its blog post:

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.1830 and Build 22631.1830 (KB5026443) to the beta channel.

  • Construction 22631.1830 = New features are coming.
  • Construction 22621.1830 = new features off by default.

There is only one new feature in this release. It adds WPA3 support to the PhoneLink Instant Hotspot feature:

Changes and improvements in build 22631.1830


We added WPA3 support to the PhoneLink Instant Hotspot feature for a more secure connection to phone hotspots. Also made improvements to respect metered connection settings, reduce duplicate profiles, and show the phone’s display name in the network list.

Microsoft also has a reminder for Beta Insider users:

Note: Internals that were previously on build 22624 will be automatically migrated to build 22631 via an active package. The activation package artificially increments the build number for the update as new features are rolled out and turned on to make it easier to distinguish devices with the update from those with default features off. This approach is being used only for the beta channel and is not indicative of any changes or plans for final feature rollouts.

Insiders who have landed with new features in the group can check for updates by default (Build 22621.xxxx) and choose to install the update that will roll out the features (Build 22631. xxxx).
