- August 21, 2021
Alongside the present build of Windows 11, Microsoft is carrying out an updated version of the Alarms and Clock application, which is currently called Clock. This follows the application updates the organization began carrying out last week, including the new Snipping Tool and Calculator. The new Clock application in Windows 11 has some new design elements, however the large new thing is Focus Sessions.
Microsoft’s Panos Panay first teased the Focus Sessions feature a couple of weeks ago. What it does is allowed clients to make timers that assist them with getting focused on work. Clients can set how long they want to work for, and the feature will automatically make a timer for work, as well as for taking breaks, so clients can clear their head prior to returning to work.
Notwithstanding the timers, it’s likewise conceivable to listen to music that helps you focus. The application integrates with Spotify and it gives you a few options for music you can listen to while you work. Focus Sessions additionally integrates with Microsoft To Do, so you can monitor the tasks you actually need to finish. You can likewise pick a particular task you want to focus on during your session. Uniting this all method you don’t need to switch between applications to manage all you require.
At last, the Focus Sessions feature in the Windows 11 Clock application likewise incorporates a panel where you can set daily goals for focus sessions and perceive how well you’ve stayed aware of those goals. You can perceive what amount of time you’ve effectively required for every day, and how long straight you’ve figured out how to hit your target.
On the off chance that any of this sounds familiar, this is on the grounds that Microsoft launched a very similar feature a couple of months ago in Teams. That was outfitted towards business clients specifically, and it required a corporate account, yet presently, a similar general idea can be used by anybody.
Notwithstanding Focus Sessions, the new Clock application additionally has a revamped design to line up with Windows 11. Like the new adding calculator application, you would now be able to see the application icon in the title bar, and the side menu has been improved. There are likewise new icons in the application, and a connection to your Microsoft account in the base left corner. These are minor changes, yet they should help the client experience feel more durable across the operating system.
For the time being, this is simply carrying out to Windows Insiders joined up with the Dev channel, so in case you’re in the Beta channel, you’ll need to stand by. Regardless of whether you are in the Dev channel, this is carrying out steadily, so you may not see it immediately.
