What's new coming with Visual Studio 2022

Microsoft announces some details about the next major release of Visual Studio. The company said that the next major release will be named Visual Studio 2022, and will be available as a 64-bit application. Though Visual Studio is going to be 64-bit, Microsoft said that it won't change the types or bitness of the applications you build with Visual Studio. Visual Studio 2022 will still continue to be a great tool for building 32-bit applications.


With the release of Visual Studio 2022, Microsoft is refreshing the user interface to better keep you in your flow. Microsoft said that it will include updated icons for better clarity, legibility, and contrast. It will also use a new fixed-width font (Cascadia Code) for better readability and ligature support


New IDE means new personalization settings. Visual Studio 2022 will provide you more abilities to customize aspects of the IDE to sync the settings across devices. If you are using multiple dev boxes, you will be beneficial from that.


Visual Studio 2022 will have full support for .NET 6. So, you can build multi-platform apps (Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS) using the .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI).
