Details:

One year ago, we integrated Windows release health into the Microsoft 365 admin center, giving you the ability to find additional technical details on known issues and view Windows-related notifications in the message center. We are happy to share that message center posts about Windows can now be returned via the service communications API in Microsoft Graph. This enables you to:

Regularly review message center posts to keep track of upcoming new features and updates, and other important announcements.
Set up custom workflows to review, assign, and triage communications about Windows from the message center.
Create applications and/or dashboards to keep others in your organization apprised of upcoming changes and other important announcements about Windows.

When will this happen:
This API enhancement is available now.

In addition, you can view Windows-related notifications in the message center and customize your notification preferences just as you would for any other product or service in the Microsoft 365 admin center. If you have applicable licensing subscriptions and do not automatically see Windows content, select Message center and then Preferences. Once you're there, select Microsoft Windows in the Custom View tab.

You can also opt-in to receive weekly digests and immediate alerts for major updates via email by selecting the Email tab in Preferences. The weekly digest email is sent on Mondays and includes links to all messages published over the past week regarding the products and services you choose. The major update email alerts bring you relevant announcements, such as the release of an out-of-band update or availability of new Windows versions. These alerts are sent on the same day the announcement is published. For a quick setup tutorial, see Email preferences on the Microsoft 365 admin center.

Note: New admins, specifically those with the roles of Global Admin or Message Center Privacy Reader, will be subscribed to a four-week trial period for the Message center weekly digest and can choose to stay subscribed once the trial has concluded by using the Message center preferences menu.
