OnPodcast Episode 38: Hands-on with leaked Windows 11, Microsoft Modern Webcam & speaker unboxing

Posted by:Podcast OnMSFT

Greetings OnPodcast viewers and listeners, and welcome back to another new episode of the weekly OnMSFT.com podcast. It was a busy week this week in the Microsoft world, so we had a lot to cover on our show. We went hands-on with a leaked Windows 11 build, unboxed some Microsoft accessories, recapped last week’s Xbox event, and a lot more.

As usual, we also had our special Fast Recap and Week Ahead Segments, too. In Fast Recap, we looked at some news about Teams and Microsoft 365 that came out of Microsoft’s “What’s next for hybrid work” event. We also looked at a new role for Satya Nadella at Microsoft, talked about next-gen games on Cloud Gaming for Xbox One, and a fix for blurry text on News and Interests.

The show then ended with the traditional Week Ahead segment.  For The Week Ahead, we looked to Microsoft’s June 24 event, a special Windows developer event, and our upcoming review of Dell’s Surface Pro X competitor, the Latitude 7320 detachable.

Topic 1: Hands-on with Windows 11
