Windows 11 was deployed by Microsoft in India and is available to users as a free upgrade on current Windows 10 PCs and those preinstalled with the new version of the software.
“# Windows11 is now available in India – Bring you closer to what you love, empower you to produce and inspire you to create, ”Microsoft India announced in a tweet on October 5th.
The company has announced that the new version has been rolled out by partners such as Asus, HP and Lenovo, and will soon be launched by Acer and Dell as well.
Microsoft says new Windows 11 users will need to agree to the terms of the Microsoft software license agreement before downloading the software.
How to get Windows 11 on Windows 10 devices
If your PC is running Windows 10, then you can check if the Windows 11 upgrade is ready for your specific device by opening Windows Update settings.
Go to Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update and click on “Check for updates”.
If your device is eligible and the upgrade is ready, the download and install option will be visible to you. If you’re ready to install Windows 11, you can just select Download and Install.
From the new Start menu and taskbar to every sound, font, and icon available, users can expect Windows 11 to bring them a more modern, fresher, and more beautiful experience.
Windows 11 was designed for gaming, with innovative new features that can take a user’s PC gaming experience to the next level. If a PC has an HDR capable display, Auto HDR will automatically upgrade over 1000 DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 games to high dynamic range, rendering a much wider range of colors and brightness.
Microsoft thinks player choice matters, so Windows 11 includes the ability to turn Auto HDR on or off on a per-game basis.
Windows 11 also includes the built-in Xbox app. Using the Xbox app, users can browse, download and play over 100 high-quality PC games with Game Pass for PC (subscription sold separately).
This October will kick off the three biggest months in Xbox history with incredible game launches, including Age of Empires IV on October 28, Forza Horizon 5 on November 9, and Halo Infinite on December 8, which will be available on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC members from day one.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can also play over 100 Xbox console games on their PC without having to wait for a download thanks to the power of Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) with the Xbox app.
