Microsoft is currently testing a new feature for Windows 11 that will enable users to sign in to websites and applications using passkeys. In a recent blog post aimed at Windows Insiders, the tech giant announced its plans to introduce passkeys as a secure sign-in method across various platforms.

With this feature, users will have the ability to create and sign in to apps and websites that support passkeys, using the native Windows Hello experience. Passkeys can be created and managed, and users can employ Windows Hello authentication methods such as face recognition, fingerprint scanning, or PIN entry to sign in.

Moreover, Microsoft is providing an additional option for users to leverage their mobile devices to complete the login process for applications. This functionality adds an extra layer of convenience and flexibility to the sign-in experience.

In addition to the passkey feature, Microsoft also highlighted the availability of Unicode Emoji 15 to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. This update enables users to access and utilize the latest set of emojis in their communication.
