As a reminder, Microsoft is no longer splitting the Beta Channel into two different builds, and moving forward, participants of the Windows Insider Program will receive the same 22635 build through an enablement package. Also, it is important to note that the company will gradually roll out features through its Control Feature Rollout (CFR) technology, meaning that not everyone will receive all the announced features for a particular build immediately.
