Update: On October 10th, Microsoft released Canary Channel version 25967.1010, which has no new features and is designed to test the servicing pipeline.
Microsoft has released a new build for the Windows 11 Canary Channel, clocking in at 25967. Included in this new “hot off the presses” build is a new Settings home page. The new page, which attempts to offer a “dynamic and personalized experience” that provides a device overview, quick access to key settings, and Microsoft account management.
The new settings experience is built on cards, optimized to “offer the most relevant information and controls at your fingertips.” Here’s what’s in the cards:
- Recommended settings: This card adapts to your specific usage patterns, providing timely and relevant settings options. It’s designed to streamline your settings management and save you time.
- Cloud storage: Gives you an overview of your cloud storage use and lets you know when you’re nearing capacity.
- Account recovery: Helps keep your Microsoft account more secure by helping you add additional recovery info so you never get locked out of your account, even if you forget your password.
- Personalization: Brings customization to the forefront by offering one-click access to update your background theme or change your color mode.
- Microsoft 365: Provides a quick glimpse of your subscription status and benefits, along with the ability to take some key actions right in Settings instead of going to the web.
- Xbox: Similar to the Microsoft 365 card, you’ll be able to view your subscription status and manage the subscription from the Settings app.
- Bluetooth Devices: To simplify your Bluetooth device management experience, we’ve brought this to the forefront so you can quickly access and connect to your favorite Bluetooth-enabled devices.
The new Settings home page will be offered to devices running Windows 11 Home and Pro, but not to devices managed by organizations.
