Top 5 Windows 11 features: If you are not using them, you’re missing out
Top 5 Windows 11 features: Windows 11 brought a wide range of changes and new additions, but these are arguably the best of them. Have you checked all of these out?
Top 5 Windows 11 features: Microsoft started rolling out Windows 11 starting October 2021 and promised a completely redesigned user-interface, new productivity tools and cool features that create a seamless experience for all users. But the update was released in batches with the newer devices getting it first. The company stated that all compatible devices will be offered the update by the middle of 2022. As a result, many of us have either not received Windows 11 updates or are yet to make the transition. For even those of you who have updated but not fully explored the features, we bring to you the top 5 Windows 11 features that you really should be using. Read on to find out what they are.
1. Android apps on Windows 11
The first on the list of top 5 Windows 11 features are Android apps. This was probably one of the most requested features that Windows users have been asking for a long time. Many were disappointed when it did not happen in Windows 10 (apart from the rare occasion when the user had a Samsung Galaxy smartphone). But now the full fledged functionality is here in WIndows 11.
Essentially, you can download and install Android apps directly onto your PC. To use this feature, you need to download the Amazon Appstore from the Microsoft Store. Once done, you can browse through more than 50,000 Android apps, including both free and paid, and install them directly. Although it does not have every single Android app, all the popular one's like Netflix, Uber, Pinterest and more.
2. Widget mania on Windows 11
Windows 11 have also added Widgets to the interface. Similar to the ‘news and interest' feature in Windows 10, widgets are mini applications that are customizable and display instant information such as news, weather, calendar, to-do list and more. Windows 11 also gives the widgets their own home - a single panel where you can check all the widgets together.
3. An integrated Teams
The third on our list of top 5 Windows 11 features is the integration for Microsoft's video chat platform Teams. You can either access the platform through the taskbar menu or by launching the chat tool which will give you quick access to message, text, voice or video call.
4. Virtual desktops
Windows 11 now lets you access separate virtual desktops to keep work and personal projects separate. Each virtual desktop is customizable using different wallpapers, apps and widgets. Toggling between them is also very simple.
5. Snap layout
The final feature on our list of top 5 Windows 11 features is snap layout. It makes your work very easy. Whenever you have multiple windows open, the OS lets you arrange them in different layouts on the screen by choosing a preset. So, no more manually arranging multiple windows to work between applications.
