Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25182
The biggest improvement in this release is the native Arm64 camera app which should run faster on compatible Arm devices. The camera app also features a privacy enhancement so that if the webcam shutter is closed or the laptop lid is closed, the camera will notify you that you need to do something about it.
Microsoft Store is another app that gets some improvements with this release. Users will now be able to see screenshots in search results and also install games directly from the Microsoft Store app.
Here is the full changelog of Microsoft:
- As of Build 25182, the expiration date is now September 15e2023. Insiders are recommended to update to this version to avoid version expiration notices.

- Fixed an issue causing some Insiders to experience a decrease in FPS when playing certain games in recent flights due to using the wrong graphics card.
- Fixed an issue that could cause the taskbar overflow flyout to appear unexpectedly on the opposite side of the screen. This was incorrectly noted as fixed in Build 25179.
- We fixed an issue that caused the taskbar animation that displayed when a user switches from a tablet device to a desktop while overflowing to display incorrectly when switching. connection.

- We fixed an issue that caused the Home, Documents, Pictures, and potentially other folders to be unexpectedly duplicated in the File Explorer navigation pane or appear on the desktop.
- Selecting multiple folders and then using the context menu option to open them in a new tab will now do this, rather than opening the first folder in a new tab and all the others in a new window.
- Updated logic for Narrator so that if you navigate to a OneDrive folder using the Navigation Pane in File Explorer, Narrator will now explicitly say it’s a OneDrive folder, not only something like “YourName – Personal”.
