Known Issues

There is an issue initiating the Eye Contact feature on the February 28, 2022, update on devices that have taken the Windows 11 update.

To initiate the feature (or turn off), you must toggle the feature within Settings. You will need to do this each time the Camera is used.

  1. Select Start > Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Camera > Surface Camera Front or Surface Camera Rear
  2. Toggle the Eye Contact feature.

We are actively working to resolve the issue in a future update.

Device Supported Until August 10, 2025

Microsoft replaced the Surface Pro X device family with the Surface Pro 9 lineup in October 2022, which now includes optional ARM configurations with 5G connectivity. Still, you can buy the Surface Pro X with the SQ2 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD for $1,499 on Amazon.
