Microsoft resumed providing separate builds in the “Dev” and “Beta” channels on May 11, with the Beta channel getting Windows 11 build 22621 and the Dev channel acquiring Windows 11 build 25115.

New suggested actions feature

According to beeping computerMicrosoft published the new “Suggested actions” feature with Windows 11 build 25115, which prompts an action bar to appear when you copy phone numbers, dates, or times from apps.

When you copy a date, Windows 11 asks you to create an event in one of the linked programs, like Outlook or Calendar.

When you copy a phone number, for example, Windows 11 will ask you if you want to call it using one of your installed click-to-dial tools.

When you choose an action, Windows 11 launches the application and completes the necessary task with the copied data.

There’s no guarantee this feature will ever make it into a public release of Windows 11, because it’s in the Dev build, which Microsoft developers use to test new features.
