Windows 10 20H2: new features and changes

UPDATED 6/18: Windows 10 20H2 is expected to rollout during the fall of 2020, and here are all the new features and changes that Microsoft has added to the new version thus far.

Windows 10 version 20H2 will be the tenth major update since the original release, and Microsoft is expected to release sometime during the fall of 2020. 

However, the company is planning to use the same “major” and “minor” schedule like the updates released in 2019. This means that during 2020, the Windows 10 version 2004 is the update considered “major,” and the Windows 10 20H2 will be the update considered “minor” that is expected to rollout similar to a cumulative update with fixes, improvements, and a very small set of new features.

Windows 10 20H2 will also be the second of two developments coming in 2020, and while we’re still a month away from the final release, thanks to the previews available in the Windows Insider Program, we’re now starting to get a glimpse of the changes coming with this new version of the operating system.

In this guide, we’ll highlight the new features and improvements planned for version 20H2 as they appear in each test preview.

Quick note: This guide will get updated and republished with new features and improvements as they become available through the Windows Insider Program. However, depending on when you’re reading this guide, some features and changes may still be missing. If this is the case, you can check this section with the latest updates. Also, even though, features available in the Windows Insider Program are expected to ship in a future release of Windows 10, they’re no longer matched to a specific update release. This means that new features available during the developing cycle may or may not be included with the next final release, and this guide will be updated regularly to reflect those changes.

What’s new Windows 10 20H2 

The version 20H2 development kicked off with the release of build 19042.330, and at this time there are no new features or significant changes. The only change thus far is that the operating system now ships with the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge.

Editor’s note: This guide includes features and improvements that appeared until Windows 10 build 19042. It should be noted that this guide focuses on features for consumers, as Microsoft is also adding other features aimed for enterprises, which aren’t included here. Although all these new changes are part of the 20H2 development. (Last updated on June, 2020.)
