* Windows Store has been rebuilt from the ground up. It has a new fluid UI and a change in some of the policies that determine what type of apps are permitted into the storefront.
* Microsoft Teams is built into Windows 11.
* Windows 11 will be compatible with many Android Apps.
* Xbox app will also be built into Windows 11. Game Pass subscribers will be able to download from a catalog of games that the service offers, and will be able to stream titles using Xbox cloud gaming. Cross-play between consoles and PCs will also be available.
* Digital pen allows for creative and personal touches. This assists users in writing and drawing naturally in order to annotate a PDF, website, image, and more.
* Voice typing makes the keyboard optional, allowing work to be transcribed into text easily.
* Intuitive touch gestures enable fluid workflows. No mouse is necessary. The use of multi-finger gestures will enable quicker navigation.
