In a blog post written by John Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, the next features to arrive in the next major Windows 10 update are briefly outlined.
The focus for the 21H1 update is to improve on security, remote access, and quality. The most significant feature arriving to Windows 10 is the ability to set an external webcam as the default for Windows Hello facial authentication. This is particularly useful when using a mobile computer that already has a Windows Hello webcam built-in but you may have it docked to a desktop monitor and would like to log in with your face using an external camera.
Windows Defender will be seeing an update that speeds up Application Guard’s performance. IN addition, Defender will see optimized document opening scenario times. An issue was also fixed that was causing a delay when opening a Microsoft Defender Application Guard Office document.
Windows Management Instrumentation Group Policy Service will be updating its performance to support more remote work scenarios, in line with more people working remotely.
Users who participate in the Beta Insider program are eligible to download the 21H1 update now as long as they are opted in.
