Microsoft has announced that it is now testing “major changes” for the upcoming Windows 12 operating system. These changes will be tested through new Canary Channels, which are experimental builds of the software. This means that users can test out these features before they become available to everyone else.
The company hopes this will help them get feedback on their ideas and make sure any major updates are ready for launch day when Windows 12 officially releases later this year. It also gives Microsoft a chance to see how people interact with their products in real time and make adjustments as needed before going live with an update or feature set.
This isn’t the first time Microsoft has used Canary Channels either; they previously released early versions of Office 365 and Teams via similar channels so customers could try out new features ahead of time if they wanted to do so. The company believes this helps give its users more control over what kind of experience they have while using its products, allowing them to customize it according to their needs or preferences without having to wait until after launch day for those updates or feature sets to come out publicly.
