What’s new and improved in Windows 11 KB5009566?

As part of Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday cycle, Windows 11 KB5009566 is now available to non-insiders. Microsoft has also provided direct download links for the offline installers of Windows 11 KB5009566. Everyone is aware that these MSI installers are freely available for the purpose of updating systems.

Patch Tuesday’s focus is mostly on bug fixes and performance enhancements. Because of the Christmas and New Year’s vacations, Microsoft did not provide an optional update for December 2021. If you’re still using the November 2021 Patch, you’ll get the December 2021 fixes in the January 2022 Patch Tuesday as well.

For those who haven’t updated to the latest security patch, the January 2022 release of your operating system will bring a new emoji experience. Fluent-style emoji with a modern-looking design, according to people who are acquainted with the work, will stay exclusive to Windows 11, according to the sources.

It’s important to remember that these emojis were included to Windows 11 as part of the most recent big upgrade and Microsoft has been testing the new design for some time now. The traditional paperclip emoji has been replaced by “Clippy,” a Microsoft Office emblem and the newest emoji addition.

Windows 11 KB5009566 addresses a slew of security flaws. As of right now, the following change has been made:

Other improvements for Windows 11

In addition to the cumulative updates, Microsoft has begun distributing a new Windows 11 Media Player, which replaces Groove. Like Groove Music and Movies & TV, it appears to be an updated version of Windows Media Player, not a replacement for it.

Media Player was accidentally showed off during a live podcast feed before it was officially released towards the end of 2021. Finally, Media Player is out of beta and can be installed on Windows 11 computers with Build 22000.

As a result of the Microsoft Store update, Windows Media Player will replace Groove on the Start menu or application list. In contrast to Groove, Media Player has a white and orange or black and orange color scheme. Zest is the name given to the orange accent by Microsoft, and in a future edition, customers will be able to select a different color for the system accent.

Media Player will immediately display your Groove Music data, and you can also set the default storage place for media files therein. Additionally, the new media player has HDR support, so it will be able to play high-quality media files without a problem.
