We just got a new update for Windows 11 for Dev Channel and Beta Channel. Microsoft has also said, if you’re using the dev channel then this is the right time to switch to Beta Channel for stabilized performance.

So now, let’s jump to the new Windows 11 Build 22000.160 and find out what new Microsoft has added this time.

The highlighting feature is the new clock app, now the apps have focus mode where you will be able to link the Microsoft To-Do app and Spotify. Also, Microsoft has made ISOs public for Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.132.

Now, first, let’s take look all-new Clock App because it does look better than ever.

Another Microsoft app got to refresh and this is a big one. We now have Focus Mode built-in to the clock app. Now, do note, the new clock app is only available for dave channels, beta channels will get the update soon.

As you can tell from the images, the clock design is revamped and now, it integrates the Windows 11 design.

To use focus mode, you have to sign in to the Microsoft account along with the Spotify account. From here, you can set up the focus timer and also, choose the playlist from Spotify.

One thing to note, to use Spotify, you have to install the app from the Microsoft store.

I’m curious to know, how many people will use this focus mode because I have never used it, I mean, I have used it on my smartphone but never on a PC.

It’s good to see, Microsoft is changing the stock apps to match the Windows 11 design, the same we have seen in the last Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.132.

ISOs now available

Changes and Improvements

  • The new Clock app for Windows 11 with Focus Sessions has begun rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. 
  • We have been testing the ability to see estimates for how long a restart for updates would take in places like the power menu under Start, in restart notifications, on the Windows Update Settings page and inside the Windows Update icon that shows up at the lower right of Taskbar. We are making a small adjustment for this feature so that it only shows on PCs with SSDs. If your PC has a standard HDD, you will no longer see estimates. We hope to bring estimates back to PCs with HDDs once we iron out a few more bugs.


  • Taskbar:
    • We fixed an issue where the “location in use” icon was showing in the Taskbar sometimes even though the usage was blocked by your preferences.

Known issues

  • [REMINDER] When upgrading to Windows 11 from Windows 10 or when installing an update to Windows 11, some features may be deprecated or removed. See details here.
  • We’re investigating an issue where on some devices, when going to Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program, only the “Stop getting preview builds” option is visible. This prevents Insiders from selecting a channel. We have posted a workaround on Answers.
  • [BETA CHANNEL] We’re investigating reports from Insiders in the Beta Channel where after upgrading to Windows 11, they are not seeing the new Taskbar and the Start menu doesn’t work. To workaround this if you are impacted, please try going to Windows Update > Update history, uninstalling the latest cumulative update for Windows, and the reinstall it by checking for updates.
  • We’re working on a fix for an issue that is causing some Surface Pro X devices to bug check with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.
  • Start:
    • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
    • System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
  • Taskbar:
    • The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
  • Search:
    • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
    • Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
    • On pen enabled devices, apps may not launch from the Search panel. If you experience this issue, please log out and back in to resolve the issue.
  • Settings:
    • Certain searches using the search box in Settings may crash Settings.
  • Bluetooth:
    • We’re investigating reports from Insiders with paired Bluetooth LE devices that are experiencing an increase in Bluetooth reliability issues and bugchecks after resume from hibernate or when Bluetooth is turned off.
  • Widgets:
    • The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
    • Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
    • [Family widget] Some users may see a ‘connect a device to see screen time activity’ message even with screen time settings enable.
    • [Family widget] Location information may not be available for some users on iOS.
  • Store:
    • We are working to improve search relevance in the Store including resolving an issue where in some cases the ordering of search results is inaccurate.
    • The install button might not be functional yet in some limited scenarios.
    • Rating and reviews are not available for some apps.
  • Windows Sandbox
    • Within Windows Sandbox, the language input switcher does not launch after clicking the switcher icon on the Taskbar. As a workaround, users can switch their input language via any of the following hardware keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift, Ctrl + Shift, or Win + Space (the third option is available only if Sandbox is full-screened).
    • Within Windows Sandbox, the IME context menu does not launch after clicking the IME icon in the Taskbar. As workarounds, users can access the functionalities of the IME context menu with either of following methods:
      • Accessing the IME settings via Settings > Time & language >  Language & region > (e.g. Japanese) three dots > Language options > (e.g. Microsoft IME) three dots > Keyboard options.
        • Optionally, you may also enable the IME toolbar, an alternative UI to quickly invoke specific IME functions. Continuing from above, navigate to Keyboard options > Appearance > Use IME toolbar.
      • Using the unique set of hardware keyboard shortcuts associated with each IME-supported language. (See: Japanese IME Shortcuts, Traditional Chinese IME Shortcuts).
    • Localization
      • There is an issue where some Insiders may be some missing translations from their user experience for a small subset of languages running the latest Insider Preview builds. To confirm if you have been impacted, please visit this Answers forum post and follow the steps for remediation.
    • Chat from Microsoft Teams
      • Experience is localized for English (US) only. Additional languages and locales forthcoming.
      • When you make an outgoing call, while you do not hear a ring tone, the user interface shows that the call is getting connected.
      • In a video call, sometimes people videos freeze or display a black image. There is a workaround to this issue, which is to pin the video that freezes and unpin it to fix the problem.
      • When switching between calls, the previous call is not automatically put on hold, so audio and video streams continue on both calls. Be sure to complete a call before taking another.

Track your daily progress by setting a daily goal for your focus sessions.

This was not a big update but still, Microsoft has fixed some of the bugs. By the way, still, there is no Android app support in Windows 11 build 22000.160.

It looks like, we have to wait for Windows 11 stable version and after that Microsoft might include the Android app into the Microsoft store with the help of the Amazon App Store.

That’s it, if you haven’t installed the Windows 11 Build 22000.160 update then do it now. Still, if you have any questions then do let me know in the comment.
