The Windows 11 operating system has been updated to build Build 22000.168. This update to the Dev channel was released on August 27, 2021.

Windows 11 22000.168 comes with two new feature changes and fixes to the search field, Settings app, Widgets section, and chat in Microsoft Teams. The first feature change is regarding added language support for Microsoft Teams. The second feature change is a new Microsoft 365 widget.

Windows 11 22000.168 brings multiple language support to the Chat section of the Microsoft Team apps, which is still accessible from the taskbar by default.

Microsoft has been kind enough to list what those new languages are:

Chat with Microsoft Teams will support the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Azerbaijani, Basque, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (UK), English US, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, French (Canada), Galician, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Norwegian (Bokmal), Norwegian (Nynorsk), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Serbian Latin, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Mexico), Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Valencian, Vietnamese, and Welsh.

Though it hasn’t been listed in the release notes, we have noticed another change to the Microsoft Teams app recently which is that it doesn’t anymore ask for a phone number just to sign in to your account and start using it. This is something I had complained about on Twitter and am now glad that the requirement is gone.

In addition to Teams getting multiple language support, there is also a new Microsoft 365 widget available to Windows 11 Enterprise subscribers. If you do own a copy of the Windows 11 Enterprise edition, you will also need an AAD account before you can use the Microsoft 365 widget.

Windows 11 22000.168 also brings several fixes. Microsoft has fixed a problem some pen users were having where Search wasn’t allowing for any clicks from the results pages. Microsoft has also fixed the problem of the Settings app crashing for some queries. Microsoft has removed the “connect a device to see screen time activity” message from displaying when it shouldn’t for the Family widget. And there are a couple of fixes for Microsoft Teams as well.

Microsoft is also aware of many known issues already regarding build 22000.168. You can view the full release notes in addition to the full list of known issues from the release notes on the Windows blog: Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.168.
