Microsoft plans to introduce a feature called “widgets” for the Windows 11 operating system, similar to the one in Windows Vista. If you have used Windows 7 or Windows Vista in the past, you must have heard the terms gadget or widget more often.

Trusted sources had previously revealed that Microsoft plans to add support for third-party widgets. It looks like third-party widgets will be available with Windows 11 version 22H2. You will also be able to customize the widget panel as you wish.

Note that there are no APIs for third-party widgets in current preview or stable builds of the operating system. This suggests that first widget support is at least a few weeks or months away.

Windows 11’s third-party widget feature will require a new version of the Windows Web Experience Pack, and developers will be able to publish their widgets to the Microsoft Store. This will significantly improve the gesture widget panel, but it is not yet clear whether the tech giant will allow apps that are not listed on the Microsoft Store.

The Windows widget panel will be moved to the left side of the screen as part of the Sun Valley 2 update. Users will be able to see weather updates directly in the taskbar, similar to the News & Interests widget for the Windows 10 taskbar.

We expect Microsoft to release the Windows 11 version 22H2 “Sun Valley 2” update by summer 2022. The major feature update is also expected to add drag-and-drop functionality to the taskbar, introduce improvements to the Start menu, and offer support for new customization options.
