A new version of Windows 11 is available for Insiders in the Canary Channel. The update takes systems to Windows 11 Build 25346. It includes a new option to use Adaptive Content Brightness Control (CABC) when a laptop or 2-in-1 is connected. Canary Channel Insiders can get the build through Windows Update or get ISOs from Microsoft.

The update also introduces several changes and improvements, including a redesigned connection bar for remote desktop sessions. Here's everything new, changed, and improved, as reported by Microsoft:

Adaptive Content Brightness Control (CABC) on plugged-in devices, including desktop PCs

Adaptive Content Brightness Control (CABC) is already a feature that users are familiar with. This Windows 11 feature dims or brightens areas of a screen or monitor according to the content being displayed, in an effort to strike a balance between lower power consumption and a battery-saving visual experience. Starting from this release, we allow this feature to work on devices such as laptops and 2-in-1s that are connected to a charger. For most users, this change will go unnoticed and should reduce power consumption.

This feature can be adjusted through Settings > System > Display under "Brightness and color" and through a dropdown menu with 3 options: Off, On and "On battery". For battery-powered devices such as laptops and 2-in-1s, the default value is "On battery". We encourage laptop and 2-in-1 experts to try the "On" option and give us their opinion on the visual quality of CABC so that we can ensure it's properly adjusted.
