You can toggle between Build 22621 and Build 22631 by enabling “Get the latest updates as soon as they are available” in Windows Update. To leave the more experimental features of Build 22631, turn the setting off, and the next available build will update to Build 22621.

First up, here are the Changes and Improvements in Build 22631.2265


  • With the update of our color font format to COLRv1, Windows is now able to display richer emoji with a 3D like appearance with support coming soon to some apps and browsers. These emoji use gradients to bring the design style that our customers have been asking for. The new emoji will bring more expression to your communications.
