Windows 11 build 25193 helps you manage your Xbox affairs

September 1, 2022

A new build is up for grabs in the Dev channel for Windows Insiders. Windows 11 build 25193 is now a reality, and this new preview rings in plenty of changes and improvements, to go with bug fixes.

It is still version 22H2, considering the fact that the Sun Valley 3 development that was known to us as version 23H2 has been unceremoniously cancelled in favor of releasing a major new version of Windows every three years.

For this reason, the Dev channel is sticking with version 22H2, and this is a version that will eventually release sometimes in 2023.

There are a lot of changes in build 25193, the details of which are compiled in the announcement post.

The key highlight being the introduction of Xbox subscription management right in the Settings app. Microsoft has been gradually adding these options in this here panel, and now we have the full range of capabilities in for gamers to easily manage their affairs.

Members of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, PC Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for Console or Xbox Live Gold will be able to see their subscription details by going to Settings > Accounts.

Build 25193 Xbox Subscriptions

Very much like the Microsoft 365 subscription management experience, you will be able to view your billing recurrence, payment method, as well as the games and benefits associated with your Xbox subscription.

Also available is the ability to manage and upgrade your subscription, redeem gift card tokens, and in general, be up to date on any actions required to continue your subscriptions without any disruptions.

There is also a Learn more link on the card if you don’t own any Xbox subscriptions.

In addition to the abovementioned capabilities, this build also brings along support for new Braille displays and new Braille input and output languages in Narrator. Microsoft has plenty of resources available for you to set this functionality up in the operating system.

Microsoft has also disabled the ability to share a local file directly to OneDrive using the built-in Windows share window. This was a result of feedback from the Insiders, and the company hopes to bring this functionality back in the future after further refinements.

Beyond that, we have a full array of fixes in build 25193, too many to list.

These, and the known issues, are well worth checking out in the blog post linked above.
