The Surface Go 3, released in September 2021, has finally received its first new firmware. The April 2022 update is now available for download through Windows Update or the official Surface Support website.
The first update for the Surface Go 3 does not contain notable new features or significant changes, unlike the most recent firmware for the Surface Laptop Studio with the Voice Clarity feature support. Instead, the April 2022 firmware update for the Surface Go 3 brings general stability improvements and security fixes. Microsoft says this release "addresses critical security vulnerability and improves system stability."
