The New Windows 11 Photos App Is Here for Insiders

A redesigned Photos app is part of Microsoft’s migration to a more modern experience on Windows 11, and the software giant is now making big steps towards the beginning of the public rollout to production devices.

For the time being, however, the new Photos app is going live for insiders in the Dev channel, yet worth knowing is that the whole thing is happening in stages.

In other words, not all Dev channel insiders are getting access to the new Photos app, as Microsoft says it’s increasing the rollout based on the feedback received from users.

The purpose of the Photos app is as simple as possible: provide users with a more modern experience from one end to another, so you’re getting a new gallery, better management, and deeper integration with OneDrive to create online backups in a more straightforward way.

Here are some of the new features that are part of the updated Photos app:

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
