Windows 11 version 22H2: Please do not disturb

 Windows 11 version 22H2: Please do not disturb © provided by Dr. Windows There are people who can still work and concentrate in the largest chaos. And there are people like me who can be distracted by every little bit of little things and at the end of the day often do not create the workload that they had actually planned. In Windows 11, Microsoft has installed the "Focus sessions" function in Windows 11, which has so far been presumably overlooked by most. The reason: The focus sessions are in the clock app, which is not called too often.

The devices from Fitbit can soon no longer be synchronized via Bluetooth with the Fitbit Connect app for Windows and Mac. The corresponding function will be stopped and deactivated in October.

Apparently Fitbit is fully focused on the support of his wearables in the future on the mobile platforms Android and iOS. The majority of customers should use the mobile apps for data comparison anyway, but there are also people who would like to see this data on their desktop computer or laptop. This will no longer be possible in the future.

on its Support page (via Thurrott ) Fitbit informs that the connection with the Fitbit Connect App is separated on October 13, 2022. From this point on, new devices can no longer be connected and existing device connections will no longer work.

The function for the transfer of music and playlists from the PC to Fitbit devices will also no longer be available from this point in time. However, the Deezer and Pandora apps will continue to be able to establish a direct connection with Fitbit smartwatches.

Update for the Windows Subsystem for Android-with harbinger for Germany-Start .
© provided by Dr. Windows Windows Subsystem for Android Cover The Windows Subsystem for Android, the basis for the execution of Android apps under Windows 11 and for the Amazon Appstore, has been updated for Windows Insider. It is a small harbinger of the upcoming start of Germany. The Amazon Appstore-which is more or less practical, but is more empty-can also be used in Germany after the update-only if the language settings of the system are set in US English.
