Windows 11 2024 Update[1] (also known as version 24H2) is an upcoming feature update for Windows 11, which will succeed the 2023 Update in fall 2024. It was first announced on 8 February 2024 with the release of build 26052 to the Dev and Canary channels.[2]

It will include energy saver, scrollable quick settings, QR codes for Wi-Fi sharing, support for creating 7z and TAR archives in addition to ZIP in File Explorer, Windows protected print mode, voice clarity, along with recent Server Message Block (SMB) protocol changes and improvements to Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS), and improvements across Settings and improvements for Bluetooth and Graphics as well.

The operating system now requires a processor that supports the POPCNT instruction (for x64 processors) or FEAT_LSE (for ARM64 processors) to operate.
