  • The new Outlook for everyone, replaces the UWP Mail app introduced in Windows 10. It's just a PWA with a native titlebar instead of the Edge titlebar, just use Wino Mail.

  • Modernized File Explorer using WinUI 3 components (Address Bar, Details Panel, Home, Sidebar, etc.) Ain't this slow and buggy for Windows?

  • New text authoring experiences to voice access and new natural voices in Narrator
  • Windows Backup. Doesn't this use OneDrive to backup your stuff, meaning you need to spend more money to even transfer everything to a new computer?

We might see the updated Copilot in the latest Canary & Dev builds that will be releasing whenever.
