Microsoft today officially announced Windows 11, the next version of its desktop operating system.

Microsoft plans to release Windows 11 to the general public by the holidays, so we can probably expect it sometime around late November.

You will now also be able to run Android apps on Windows. These apps will seem like native apps that can be integrated into the taskbar.

Windows 11 will come with Teams built-in.

Microsoft promises better graphics for gaming thanks to Auto HDR, a feature that’s already available on Xbox.

    Android Subsystem for Windows placeholder app appears in the Microsoft Store
    Microsoft Insider testers may get to try out the Android Subsystem for Windows sooner rather than later, based on the existence of a placeholder app in the Microsoft Store.

    Asus is working on new firmware for certain motherboards that enables PCs to upgrade to Windows 11, bypassing the system requirements that Microsoft set for it.

    Asus is working on new firmware for certain motherboards that enables PCs to upgrade to Windows 11, bypassing the system requirements that Microsoft set for it.

    The system requirements of Microsoft’s Windows 11 has had its fair share of confusion, ever since the upgrade was announced on June

    While Microsoft further clarified in August that other Intel chips and motherboards may be able to install Windows 11, other users are still left out from the upgrade.

    However, Asus looks to be working on firmware updates for its Intel motherboards, rolling out beta versions that enable Windows 11 to be installed on certain products.

    While Windows 11 officially supports the eighth generation Intel Core processors at minimum, Asus is using this opportunity to clearly support sixth-gen Skylake and seventh-gen Kaby Lake for its users on certain motherboards.
