Microsoft accidentally teases Moment 2, the next big update

While 22H2 is just starting to be installed on compatible PCs, Windows 11 will surely have another major update from early 2023. Called Moment 2, from the name of these updates, which now complete the annual updates, this appeared by mistake during a Microsoft promotional video.

We explained it to you at the start of the school year: From now on, Windows 11 will be eligible for several regular updates, which will add new functions during the year. We will of course find the traditional annual updates. What changes is that these will now be accompanied by less extensive updates, but still bring their share of new features. This is especially the case with the 22H2, which notably brings the tabs in the file explorer.

So that was it for Moment 1, but so what Moment 2 ? Well, that shouldn’t take long to arrive, according to a recent indiscretion on Microsoft’s part. In fact, the Redmond company has released a long video on the YouTube channel dedicated to the Insider program, which presents the features that will come on Windows 11. However, we note at a certain passage the name of the build, namely: Windows 11 preview build 23003.ni_moment_directdash_dev1.221018-160.

Windows 11 Moment 2 is coming in early 2023

We already knew that Windows 11 would be eligible for another major update early next year. It is therefore now confirmed with this build, which turns out to be linked to Moment 2. The version presented in the video is of course far from final, so Insiders and de facto the general public will see a completely different facet of the updateonce installed on their PC.

So far, it’s hard to say exactly what features Moment 2 will bring. However, we already know some of the new features that Microsoft is preparing for its operating system. Some of them could therefore be included in the list. It thus seems very likely that the focus will be on the update optimized for touch screensfor example, thanks to the new display of widgets and the taskbar.
