Then the Korean Input Mode Editor (IME) will be released again. The development of an updated version had already started with the 19H1. Due to the feedback the IME was not rolled out with 19H1. With the now available build (LeBlanc writes from build 19528) the updated IME is rolled out again, together with some improvements to work better with different applications.

Microsoft has family features that span multiple platforms, including Windows, Xbox, and Android. On Windows, administrators can set things up for your family, such as screen time limits, content filters, have children ask before they buy, or even manage a shared family calendar, OneNote, and Office 365 Home subscriptions. When you share a device with your family, it’s easy to set up your account in a family group to use all of these features. There’s also a new Family Group Setup that lets you select people who belong to your family.
