One of the standout features in Build 23601 is the dedicated mode for Windows 365 Boot. This innovative addition allows users to boot into their Windows 365 Cloud PC directly from their designated company-owned devices.

Organizations can now put their stamp on the login page in shared mode by customizing it with their company branding through Intune. The fail-fast mechanism is another welcomed improvement, proactively notifying users of any network issues or incomplete setups before attempting to sign in, ensuring a smoother login experience.
