The update will bring screen recording ability for Windows 11 laptops, thus reducing the dependence on third-party apps for recording the computer’s screen.

“We know that Snipping Tool is a favorite among the Insider community, so we are very excited to introduce a built-in screen recorder with this update! Snipping Tool has always made it quick and easy to capture and share content from your PC, and with screen recording built-in, we are expanding these capabilities to even more types of content", the company said in the blog.

The company is rolling out the feature preview to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. Microsoft says that users may face a couple issues that may impact their experience with this preview. For example, some users might notice a slight delay between when they click “Start" and when the recording begins. There is also a known issue where the Snipping Tool app window does not restore when initiating a new snip from within the app.

Users can file their feedback in Feedback Hub (WIN + F) under Apps > Snipping Tool.

Recently, Microsoft introduced a new feature as part of its work communications suite, Teams, marking the company’s foray into personal messaging service.
