Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders on the Dev Channel. The build has a new feature where you can get instant access to photos and screenshots taken on your mobile device.

To try this out you will need to go to Settings, Bluetooth & Devices, Mobile devices and then select Manage Devices. This will prompt your PC to download a new Cross Device Experience Host update from the Microsoft Store.

You can then enable the new feature, and when you take a photo or take a screenshot you get a notification in Windows

This is a great new feature and it works very well.

Other changes:

If you are using Windows 11 Pro or Enterprise with a Microsoft Entra ID you will get the ability to join an upcoming Microsoft Teams meeting directly from the Start menu,
