  4. 4. Emoji 15.1 Support: The update adds support for Emoji 15.1, including Unicode symbol-like shapes for family groupings, horizontal and vertical head shakes, a phoenix, a lime, a brown mushroom, and a broken chain. Users can also choose the direction for some people emoji.
  5. 5. Enhanced File Copying: Users can now copy files directly from the Windows Share window by clicking the new Copy button, simplifying file management.
  6. 6. New Account Manager in Start Menu: The rollout of a new account manager on the Start menu has begun. This feature provides a glance at account benefits and simplifies the management of account settings for users signed in with a Microsoft account.
