Windows 11 ‘Moment 2’ update adds third-party widgets & more

Microsoft has just rolled out the ‘Moment 2′ update for Windows 11 that brings a bunch of new cool features, including support for this-party widgets and a touch-optimized taskbar.

The update is heading to Windows 11 version 22H2, along with Patch Tuesday updates. While this update rolled out as optional last month, it’s now mandatory for all users to install it. It’s available as KB5023706 (build 22621.1413). You can check the Windows Settings app to see if the update is rolled out to your device or manually download it from the Microsoft website.

The first feature that the update brings to Windows 11 is a touch-optimized taskbar. This feature hides app icons so you can have more space. To check if it’s activated or if you want to make any changes to the taskbar, navigate to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar.

Windows 11 now allows you to add third-party widgets in the Widgets panel. This could be an efficient add-on for certain apps like messengers and music streaming apps. You can now pin the widgets of your favorite apps to the Widgets board.

Windows 11 version 22H2 update still has a lot to offer. The next added feature is quick access to Windows Studio effects through the Quick Settings panel on the taskbar. You can now apply effects to the device’s camera and microphone. For example, for a business meeting, you can cancel the background noise or blur the background.

Additionally, Task Manager on Windows 11 now has a search bar that lets you find things faster. Microsoft also added Braille displays and improved Narrator integration with Braille drivers for low-vision users. More voice commands are also added to Windows. Finally, Azure Active Directory users can see AI-based recommendations on the Start men.

Besides adding these features to Windows 11, Microsoft released updates to the Windows apps. For example, the Snipping Tool now has a screen recorder feature and a Notepad app support tab. Other small fixes, like a crash, while playing HDR videos or a bug that prevented users from logging in by Pin or fingerprint, are also included.

Windows 11 version 21H2 also got the same update as version 22H2. Of course, there is an advanced auto-learning feature for facial recognition on version 21H2 now that suits well with Windows Hello.
