Microsoft quietly outs build 22621.457 (KB5016695) to Windows 11 22H2 Release Preview

Windows 11 Insider Preview

Microsoft, today, has released a new Windows 11 build 22621.382 (KB5016632) to Insiders flighting on the Release Preview channel. However, it looks like Microsoft has forgotten to add the release notes for the new build. When clicking on the "Learn more" option beside the update inside Settings, it leads to a blank page where the changelog for the new build is supposed to be placed. Here is the support webpage for 22621.457 (KB5016695) which Microsoft could likely update sometime soon. Hence, as of now it is unconfirmed what's new in the build.

However, it is noteworthy that Microsoft has been releasing such builds with no changlogs over the last month. Interestingly, the Build 22621.382 (KB5016632) apparently had the same set of changes that were in the August Windows 11 Patch Tuesday (KB5016629) (via Chaori on Reddit). Hence, a similar thing could be happening once again.

Regardless, we will update the article as soon as we can once Microsoft publishes any changelog.
