Windows 10 KB4580386 (Build 18363.1171) Full Changelog
Microsoft has been testing a new feature that allows you to make video calls directly from the taskbar and the feature is called “Meet Now”. With Windows 10 Build 18363.1171, Microsoft says it’s bringing the Meet Now feature to older versions of the OS, including version 1909 and version 1903.
Users on Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2 will also receive the brand-new Meet Now feature later this month as part of the upcoming optional preview release.
Microsoft says ‘Meet Now’ integrates video conferencing functionality directly into the OS and it allows users to create meeting space that can be accessed by participants using a unique link.
This feature does not require a Skype account and you can join meetings anonymously as well. Once you’re in the meeting, you can invite others or start a conversation with attendees using chat, text or voice.
Windows 10 KB4580386 also fixes an issue that prevented users from playing games that they obtained using Xbox Game Pass user. Another bug has been fixed where USB printer port stops working after a system reboot.
Microsoft resolved an issue that breaks Windows Update and Microsoft Store when your computer is connected to virtual private networks. The changelog of this preview release is massive, but it’s mainly focused on highlighting fixes for businesses and enterprises.
