Microsoft has started testing support for Wi-Fi 7 in Windows 11, which offers multi-gigabit speeds and improved throughput, latency, and reliability compared to previous Wi-Fi generations.

Wi-Fi 7 support is now being tested in the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26063, released today in the Canary Channel.

Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel will not receive this build today since Redmond is currently testing the servicing pipeline for Windows 11 24H2, the next feature release.

In January, Microsoft said that support for the USB4 Version 2.0 specification is also coming to Windows 11, with increased USB transfer speeds of up to 80 Gbps over USB Type-C cables.

The company has also started testing a controversial new feature that automatically opens the AI-powered Copilot assistant after Windows 11 starts up on systems with 27-inch displays and pixel widths of at least 1920 pixels.

Microsoft now force installing Windows 11 23H2 on eligible PCs. Microsoft unveils new 'Sudo for Windows' feature in Windows 11.
