Windows 11 Insider Build 22572 Brings New Clipchamp Video Editing App

Posted on March 9, 2022 by Laurent Giret in Windows, Windows 11 with 18 Comments

Microsoft has just released the Windows 11 Insider build 22572 for testers in the Dev Channel. This new build introduces no new features, but there are two new inbox apps to check out with Microsoft Family Safety and Clipchamp.

The new Microsoft Family Safety app brings parental controls for Microsoft accounts all in one place, and Microsoft plans to make it an inbox app on Windows 11 Home soon. The app includes the same family safety features available on the web and the Microsoft Family Safety apps for iOS and Android, and it will be updated via the Microsoft Store.

Clipchamp is a web-based video editing app that Microsoft acquired back in September, and it’s now available as an inbox app on the Windows 11 build 22572. “Clipchamp is equipped with all the basic tools you’d expect, like trimming and splitting, as well as more pro-style features like transitions and animated text,” the Windows Insider team explained.

On paper, Clipchamp should be far more versatile than the Windows 11 Photos app for editing videos. The team highlighted that Clipchamp provides access to over a million royalty-free videos, audio tracks, and images, and the app also supports importing and exporting files from OneDrive.

Clipchamp’s video editing experience with the timeline.

Next week, Microsoft will also start rolling out an update for Windows Search that will add relevant content and “interesting moments” such as anniversaries or special days. “The search box in Start and Search will periodically update with content, including fun illustrations, that help you discover more, be connected, and stay productive. These hints in the search box give you a sneak peek into what to expect in search home,” the Windows Insider team explained.

Microsoft is also planning to bring Search highlights to the Windows 10 search box, and the company will test it first with Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Channel. If you’re not interested in this content, it will be possible to turn off Seach highlights in Settings > Privacy & security > Search settings.

Today’s build also introduces new Fluent-style icons for Windows Sandbox and Quick Assist, and the Print Queue has also been updated to align with the Windows 11 design guidelines. Insiders will also notice an updated icon for the Notification Center in the Taskbar when do not disturb is on.

That’s it for what’s new with the Windows 11 Insider build 22572, which also brings the usual bug fixes and improvements. You’ll find a fix for an issue that was causing audio stutters and touchpad issues in the previous build, and Microsoft has fixed other bugs affecting the Taskbar, the Start Menu, and File Explorer as well.

    Clipchamp? Let's hope they will fix the name....

    Bunch of useless apps people uninstall anyway.

    You can get good or cheaper video editing software than what this costs. The free 720p video output for free is not worth it to me.

    I am thankful that you can turn off the search nonsense. Why cant Microsoft understand that when I search for something on my computer, I'm looking for something...on my computer.

    "Next week, Microsoft will also start rolling out an update for Windows Search .....will periodically update with content, including fun illustrations, that help you discover more, be connected, and stay productive. "


    Of course it's all to do with Bing and Microsoft's mad rush to plug another of it's useless, rubbish services. Windows is becoming/has become just a marketing vehicle and is getting/has got in the way of doing anything productive.

    I've always wanted a substitute for Windows Movie Maker on Windows 10/11. Adobe's options can be so expensive. I would love to see ClipChamp come to Xbox next. Perhaps it needs a better name though?


    I hope this app has more codec support than Windows Media Player, which is so minimal.

    The Windows Photos video editor still has the feature in which an effect can attach to a moving object in the video. Has anyone seen this feature in any other video editor? I haven't.

    It would make sense for office subscribers to get a "premium" version of clipchamp no? Instead of shoving another subscription down those uses throats for what has almost always been a nyult in windows feature. I would enjoy a decent quality video editor being included in my subscription even if it is only to make a simple video once every 2 years.

    I'll never see the name Clipchamp and not think about the Windows Weekly episode titled Chimpclamp.

    wow when was the last time print queue got any attention?

    "... the Print Queue has also been updated to align with the Windows 11 design guidelines"


    I am very pleasantly surprised to see that they continue to go through and improve consistency of legacy UI components. I expected this effort might just get dropped after release.

    Actually I just need a very simple video editing program like iMovie on Mac for some leisure basic editing... But at least give me 720p output for free right? Why even 720p output also needs me to pay for it?
