On the 28th of April, a Windows insider blog shared some light on the new May 2021 Update which will include Build 19043.928 as the “final” build for the 21H1 feature update. They have yet to release a set date for it, but it is likely going to be released as an optional update in May.

How to get the update

When the update releases, it will first be available for those that manually search for it by using the ‘Search for update’ option in the Windows Updates section of the Settings menu.

Over time, the update will roll out as an automatic update for Windows 10.

What can be expected in the new update?

There aren’t any massive changes or groundbreaking updates, just the usual bug fixes, security fixes and some quality changes. Other than that, the notable changes are;

  • Windows Hello multicamera support to set the default as the external camera when both external and internal Windows Hello cameras are present.
  • Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements including optimizing document opening scenario times.
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) updating performance improvement to support remote work scenarios.

This is likely the last build update before the Windows 10 Sun Valley feature update that is expected to come out later this year.
