Windows 12 will be released in 2024 and will be updated up to four times a year

According to the Windows Central resource, citing “their sources,” Microsoft is changing its strategy for releasing new versions of Windows and updates. The new version of the OS (correctly also called a very major update) will not be released annually, as was decided last year, but once every three years. Thus, the next major update of Windows 11 will take place in 2024 – three years after the release of Windows 11 in 2021. Some resources have already rushed to christen this update Windows 12. Indeed, changing the number in the title will clearly display the amount of innovation – about the same as it was with the transition from Windows 10 to Windows 11.

Windows 12 will be released in 2024 and will be updated up to four times a year

Microsoft will also switch to the Moments update strategy, which involves integrating innovations into the OS throughout the year, outside the scope of a major update: new features will appear in Windows every few months (up to four times a year) starting in 2023.

What will happen to the already planned updates for Windows 11? Sun Valley is due out this year, as expected. Recall that this will be the first major update of Windows 11. The Moments strategy, according to the source, will begin to operate after the release of Windows 11 22H2 – Sun Valley 2. But Sun Valley 3 will no longer exist – the features and innovations planned as part of this update will already be go out as part of Moments – once every few months.

Moments will allow you to integrate innovations into Windows faster, without having to wait for a big release. But how this strategy is implemented in practice, and why Microsoft, which previously abandoned the frequent release of small updates in favor of one rare cumulative one, is now, in fact, returning to what it was, is unclear.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files

WhatsApp developers are working on a new feature that will prevent users from taking screenshots and capturing video from the screen when opening files for a one-time view. The innovation has already been implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files for one-time viewing

So, in the future mobile version of WhatsApp, users will be notified before sending a file with a single view that the recipient will be able to open the photo or video only once and will not be able to resend it to anyone, save it, copy it or take a screenshot. There are no such notifications or warnings in the current version of WhatsApp. True, at the same time, nothing prevents the recipient from recording a video or photographing content on another smartphone.

Recall that recently the release of a full-fledged WhatsApp client for desktop PCs and laptops running Windows took place.

Naturally, this does not mean at all that all these models will immediately stop receiving software updates – fresh firmware for them will continue to be released for a long time, as beta versions are transferred to the release (final) status. However, we can already say that these models will not receive anything fresher than MIUI 13 (MIUI 14 will not be released until November).

Xiaomi also announced the recruitment of participants in the Android 13 beta testing group for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone – the test will be launched before the end of this month.
