New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Copilot[edit | edit source]

The "Copilot actions" menu and the animated Copilot icon on the taskbar, previously introduced in build 26052, have been disabled temporarily due to some bugs. It can still be enabled manually by toggling on the 45596742 velocity staging key with variant parameter set to 3.

Widgets[edit | edit source]

The new navigation pane on the Widgets dashboard, previously introduced in build 26058, has been disabled temporarily due to some bugs. It can still be enabled manually by toggling on the 47370305 velocity staging key.

Accessibility[edit | edit source]

A new text-to-speech feature called "Speak for Me" has been implemented. With this feature turned on, Windows will read text out loud using user's own synthetic voice or natural voices. It can be toggled on via the "Speak for me" section in the Settings app (initially implemented but non-funtional in build 26052) or by pressing the ⊞ Win+Ctrl+T keyboard shortcut. Signing in to a Microsoft account is required to configure user's own voice.

Speak for Me is disabled by default, but can be enabled manually by toggling on the 44950080, 47123936, 47405131, 47976395, 48002155, 48339425, 48624087, 48812316 and 48900033 velocity staging keys.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

Support of the IEEE 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7) standard has been implemented.
