Windows 11 Build 22000.132 is now rolling out to users in the
Dev and Beta channels of the company’s Insider program. Windows
11’s new cumulative update is all about bug fixes and quality
improvements, and there are no new features as version 21H2 of
the operating system has already hit the RTM status.
This patch is titled “Cumulative Update for Windows 11
(10.0.22000.132) (KB5005190)” and it will download/install
automatically when you check for updates. In addition to the
new patch, Microsoft has also published a new version of
Windows Malware Removal, Windows Defender security update, and
August 2021 update.
Windows 11 KB5005190 comes with big improvements for Microsoft
Teams Chat taskbar integration. As you’re probably aware, the
Microsoft Teams chat feature is integrated directly into the
taskbar, allowing users to start chat or calls with just a few
clicks, and it’s completely free.
As you can see in the above screenshot, Windows 11 will have a
dedicated button for the Microsoft Teams chat app. So far, the
functionality of the Teams chat app has been very limited and
it only allows users to chat with each other. With today’s
update, Microsoft is rolling out one-to-one and group audio and
video calling features.
You can now create and join meetings directly from the taskbar,
and ability to toggle your microphone or camera is now also
accessible. In near future, users will be able to share their
screen and see the roster of participants within the Teams chat
window of Windows 11.
