In a recent blog post, Microsoft introduced the next major update called 21H1 that Windows 10 will receive. According to John Cable, vice president and program manager at Windows Servicing and Delivery, the company will implement its learnings and feedback from last year.
With the new update, the system will obtain a set of features with scope improving security, remote access and quality.
The features we are releasing in this update are focused on the core experiences that customers have told us they’re relying on most right now. So, we optimized this release to support our customers’ most pressing needs.
The new features that should be implemented with the Windows 10 21H1 update are:
The sign feature that will accompany the new update is support for multiple cameras for Windows Hello and security-related performance improvements. This will allow users to set an external webcam as the default for Windows Hello facial authentication. It will be particularly useful for people who connect their laptops to a desktop monitor.
Other updates include Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements with optimized document opening scenario times and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) update performance enhancement to support remote work scenarios .
The 21H1 update is supported by the fact that last year was mainly about remote work, learning and play. It will be released soon and, according to Microsoft, will be installed as a monthly update due to the quick installation.
