With Windows 11, we have seen a lot of visual changes in the UI. Now, with the latest preview build update, the company is replacing the 10-year-old black volume bar introduced with Windows 8 in 2012 with a volume indicator that matches the overall design of Windows 11.
The company has revealed that the volume, brightness, camera privacy, camera and Airplane Mode indicators are all being updated with a modern design. The new indicators will appear in the lower center and will respect the light/dark mode. Both the brightness and volume indicators remain interactive with the latest preview build update.
Along with the new indicators, Microsoft is also testing a new call experience in the Your Phone app on Windows 11. The latest update brings a new in-progress call window with updated icons, fonts and other UI changes that align with the better. Windows 11 Design.
Windows 11 Preview Build 22533 also comes with an expansion of the Touch Keyboard theme, which now includes the emoji panel and elsewhere for all Dev Channel testers. It also adds an option for users to uninstall the Clock app from within Windows 11.

The company hasn’t disclosed when we can expect to see these new features in the public release version of Windows 11.
