Short answer: Windows 11 was released on October 5, 2021.

Microsoft released Windows 11 to the world on October 5, 2021. It’s still free to upgrade for anyone on Windows 10.

If you install it now, you’ll get the 22H2 update of Windows 11, the first major upgrade package for the operating system. It brings systemwide closed captioning, new security features, enhanced Snap layouts, and Focus sessions.

You’ll also get inbuilt filters and tools to make your video conferencing look and sound better. Microsoft also improved gaming on Windows 11, with Game Pass built-in to the Xbox app, Auto HDR, and variable refresh rate on windowed games.

The Amazon Appstore preview has also been extended to more countries so that you can use over 20,000 Android apps from your Windows desktop.

With all those new improvements, it’s time to upgrade to Windows 11. It really is more stable and usable than any other version of Windows we’ve used.
