Microsoft has just released the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25977 to the Canary Channel, bringing some exciting developments in accessibility and privacy.

However, it is important to note that this feature is only available on select Windows devices supporting Bluetooth LE Audio. Microsoft intends to expand the availability of this feature to more PCs in the future, ensuring that a wider range of users can benefit from it.

Furthermore, the software giant has plans to add additional capabilities for hearing aids in the coming updates. One of the features in the pipeline is the option to control audio presets within Windows, allowing users to customize their audio experience to suit their individual preferences.

Overall, the build focuses on testing Bluetooth LE Audio support while also bringing enhancements like the ability to share saved passwords in Windows 11 through QR codes. For more detailed information, check out our other post.
