NewsWindows 11 is coming with New Entertainment Widget

Microsoft just announced the release of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.71 for its users. It explains some changes, some known issues, and some fixes. In addition, Microsoft has introduced a new entertainment widget that will allow its users to see new and featured movie titles that are available in the Microsoft store. Selecting a movie will direct the users to the Microsoft Store to see more information about that movie title.

This widget will be something similar to the Weather widget we all have seen and used. However, with the help of this Widget in Windows 11, you can easily take a sneak into the latest movie titles available in Microsoft Store without going in there.

Just click the Widgets icon pinned to the Taskbar, click or tap on the “Add widgets” button and choose the entertainment widget.
