Microsoft has added another widget to Windows 11 for Windows Insiders on the dev channel. With build 25284 Microsoft introduced a Facebook Messenger widget and today I noticed on my dev machine there was a new Phone Link widget.

Once added the widget shows your phones status including battery status and signal strength as well as recent notification. Clicking on a notification takes you to the Phone Link app. The new widget didn’t show up until the Phone Link app was updated so make sure you have the latest version installed if you want to try it.

Hopefully more widgets are on the way, I find the news items less useful but the app widgets like Outlook and Phone Link better use of the screen space.
