The service is necessarily connected to a Microsoft account. Those who do not yet have a Microsoft 365 subscription should still be able to use some free features, according to Microsoft.

In addition, the Redmonders announce that the installation of updates can be scheduled at certain times of the day. This is in order to carry out an update at a time when the power grids are increasingly powered by renewable energies. It is also gratifying that this should apparently be done in the background, as stated in the insider build blog. Alternatively, you can still initiate an update manually.
