For Windows Insiders on the beta channel there is a new build of Windows 11. KB5033456 takes the build to 22635.2915 for devices on the Beta channel.

For devices with the Get Latest Updates toggle switch on there are improvements to voice access:

There are additional languages available in voice access: French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain) and Spanish (Mexico). Plus there is Multi-display support so you can interact with multiple displays.

Another change is with Screen Casting:

  • When doing multitasking activities on your PC such as often switching between windows to complete a task or using Snap Assist to organize your screen space, we will provide the suggestion to Cast via a notification toast.
  • We have updated the Cast flyout in Quick Settings with additional support for you in case you face any trouble discovering nearby displays, fixing connections, and more.

Windows 11 is phasing out Windows Speech Recognition (WSR) in favor of voice access, which uses on-device speech recognition for PC control and text authoring without the need for an internet connection. Users will be prompted to try voice access when opening WSR, and a banner is added under Settings > Accessibility > Speech. Voice access will soon support multiple languages and custom commands. Nearby Sharing now allows users to give their devices friendlier names for easier identification. Narrator users can utilize voice access to open applications, dictate text, and interact with on-screen elements. Task Manager improvements include selectable dump file locations, and desktop switching has been enhanced to address background jumping issues. These updates are available for Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel.
