A richer lock screen weather experience

Microsoft has introduced a richer weather experience on the lock screen, including dynamic and interactive weather updates.

Users can see more information after moving their mouse to hover over the weather experience on the lock screen.

After the user taps or clicks the weather card and logs in, the Microsoft Edge browser will be called to open the MSN weather forecast page and present the complete forecast.

If you’ve already enabled Weather under Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen > Lock Screen Status, you don’t need to do anything more.

Additionally, this new experience will be enabled by default. If you don’t want to see this experience, you can change the lock screen status to “None”.

No matter which personalization option you choose (Windows spotlight, picture or slideshow), you can get this rich weather experience on your lock screen.

Currently, the new version of the lock screen is only launched in the EN-US version, and only a small number of Dev channel users are invited for testing, and will be gradually released in the future.

Voice Access expanded languages, multi-display support, and voice access custom commands

Extended language support:

Microsoft has expanded Voice Access to support additional languages ​​such as French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain), and Spanish (Mexico).

When you open Voice Access for the first time, you are prompted to download a speech model so that speech data can be recognized on the device. If Speech Access does not find a speech model that matches your display language, you still have the option to continue using English (US) Speech Access.

The Grid Overlay feature has been further developed to not only allow you to interact with the screen you are currently using, but also to quickly switch to another monitor. You can also use drag-and-drop to move files, apps, and documents from one monitor to another.

After calling the Grid Overlay function, it is used to quickly transfer focus to another display. You can use letters or NATO phonetic spellings in the command; for example, “B” or “Bravo” both work, as shown in the screenshot above.

Voice shortcut keys:

We’ve introduced voice shortcuts or custom commands, allowing you to create your own commands. This feature is currently available if you use English Voice Access.
