Key New Features In Windows 11
Another key new feature is integrated Chat and videoconferencing tools from Microsoft Teams. Thus, if you use Teams, you can access your tools directly from the taskbar. Also, surprising many, Microsoft announced that Windows 11 can run apps designed for the Android operating system. You will be able to search for and install these apps from the Microsoft Store.
Additionally, Windows 11 improves how computers arrange windows. For instance, Snap Layouts and Snap Groups allow you to quickly arrange multiple open windows on your device. Further, if you disconnect from a second monitor, icons for the apps open on that monitor will appear in the taskbar.
Also, laptop and tablet computers may get better battery life with Windows 11. With the updated operating system, users may be able to manage how often the screen refreshes. Reducing the number of refreshes per second improves battery life.
The New Version Of Windows Requires More Horsepower
- An Intel 8th Generation Coffee Lake or Zen 2 CPUs, or higher
- Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 support
- 4 GB of Random Access Memory (RAM)
- 64 GB of storage
The practical implication of these requirements, should Microsoft stick to them, is that millions of existing devices will not be eligible to upgrade to Windows 11.

If you are running Windows 10, you can check your Windows Settings to see if the upgrade is available to you at any point.
