Windows 11 features could come as separate downloads

Windows 11 feature downloads

Microsoft has been working on “Windows Experience Pack” for a
while now and it is currently available for both Windows 10 and
Windows 11. In addition to Windows Experience packs, Microsoft
is now experimenting with another updates delivery system
called “Online Service Experience Packs”.

Like Windows Experience Packs, Online Experience Packs would be
a new way of delivering features to Windows 11 users without
asking them to download a new version of the operating system.

Microsoft has released the first version of the Online Service
Experience Pack for Windows Insiders in the Dev channel and it
apparently works in a similar way as the Feature Experience
Packs do. At the moment, it is expected to include improvements
for the new Microsoft account integration introduced with Build
22489.

Windows 11 Build 22489 account

Windows 11 Build 22489 comes with a new page to manage your
Microsoft account. As you can see in the above screenshot,
Windows 11’s “Your Microsoft account” Settings displays
information related to your active subscriptions, apps,
services, and other details of the account.

For example, you can also view your Outlook email and access
links to order history, payment details (linked cards), and
Microsoft Rewards.

Based on feedback from testers, Microsoft is planning to
improve the Windows Settings app via Online Service Experience
Packs.

These Online Service Experience Packs will reportedly allow the
company to make changes to the operating system outside of
major Windows feature updates.

If you’re in the Dev Channel, you can expect a new update
titled “Online Service Experience Pack –
Windows.Settings.Account”.

This particular update will only make changes to the “Microsoft
Account” page within the Settings app, according to Microsoft.

That’s because Online Service Experience Packs will be released
with improvements for specific experiences only. For example,
you can expect improvements to the disk management page,
Windows Update page, and other areas of the Settings app via
these Windows 11 updates.

If the company wants to deliver board improvements across
multiple areas of File Explorer, Start Menu, and Taskbar,
they’ll release Windows Feature Experience Packs and Windows
feature update.

Experience packs are available through Windows Update and you
can check for updates to find them.

It looks like online experience packs will be exclusive to
Windows 11 as the goal is to use these updates to improve
different shells and features of the modern OS system. Windows
11 features modern components like a new taskbar and settings,
which could allow Microsoft to easily add new features without
the need for a whole new update for Windows.
