Microsoft has released the first beta of Windows 11, and this version will be available for those who have enrolled in its Windows Insider Program. Until today, getting access to Windows 11 was tedious as the users had to install the Dev Preview, which Microsoft says is meant for "highly technical users" as it has rough edges. According to Microsoft, the beta release is less volatile, with builds being validated by Microsoft.

To install the beta version, you will need a compatible computer. The hardware will work with the next version of Windows. The company has said that it will be paying close attention to how well the 7th Gen Intel and AMD Zen 1 CPUs will be working during the testing period so that it will be possible t to run the beta on those computers. The beta release is good news for those who have installed the Dev preview as it helps them get their hands on Windows 11 as soon as possible.

For those who are still running Windows 10 but want to join the beta, you can register for Microsoft's beta program on its official website. Microsoft says that the Beta Channel releases are highly stable than Dev Channel. And it is comparatively easy to switch to the latest Beta channel as it only requires a quick reboot.
