The first Windows 11 isn’t yet compatible with every computer out there and the promised features aren’t just available despite an official rollout starting as far back as Oct. 5th.
While the design aesthetics of the new major upgrade looks a bit similar to what exists currently on macOS, the most anticipated support for Android mobile apps isn’t available on the first roll-out which might not be enough for many who mainly want the update because of this feature.
In fact, Microsoft didn’t specify when the update will offer the Android mobile app support though it stated it will be incoming in a preview test over the coming months.
While there is a lot to look forward to, you shouldn’t be pissed off if you do not receive the update just yet as Microsoft made it clear that it will continue to roll out the new update until the next year 2022.
The release will be phased and measured according to Microsoft. In this case, newer devices will get the update first while older ones will receive the update later.
The update will also be free for those running activated Windows 10. It’s just about clicking a button and your welcome screen will change to the new UI.
While your PC might be mischaracterized as being incompatible with Windows 11, you can manually download a version that is not supported by Microsoft. And here’s how to set the default search engine, if you’d rather not use Bing.
Another thing to note is that the grace period for Windows 10 extends until Oct. 2025 so you’ve got plenty of time to decide.
