The April 2023 non-security preview update is now available. These optional non-security previews are released for Windows 10, version 22H2 and Windows 11, versions 21H2 and 22H2 only. For instructions on how to install this update on your home device, check the Update Windows article. Information about the contents of this update is available from the release notes, which are accessible from the Windows 11 and Windows 10 update history pages. To learn more about the different types of monthly quality updates, see Windows monthly updates explained. To be informed about the latest updates and releases, follow us on Twitter @WindowsUpdate.

IMPORTANT After March 2023, there are no more optional, non-security preview releases for the supported editions of Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 21H2. Only cumulative monthly security updates (known as the "B" or Update Tuesday release) will continue for these versions. Windows 10, version 22H2 will continue to receive security and optional releases.

NOTE Starting in April 2023, optional, non-security preview updates will be released on the fourth week of the month.

Highlights for the Windows 11, version 22H2 update:

This update adds animations to a few icons on the Widgets taskbar button. These animations turn on when a new announcement appears on the Widgets taskbar button and when you hover over or click the Widgets taskbar button.
This update adds a new toggle control on the Settings > Windows Update page. When you turn it on, your device will opt in to receive future non-security updates as soon as they are available. For commercial customers, the toggle is disabled by default.
This update addresses an issue that affects Microsoft Edge IE mode. Pop-up windows open in the background instead of in the foreground.
This update addresses an issue that affects the Chinese input method. You cannot see the entirety of the first suggested item.
