It’s about the Build 19041.546, the one corresponding to the KB4577063 patch and is an optional update, which means that it will not be downloaded or installed on the computer unless we give the order to do so. An update that also comes for those who use Windows 10 October 2019 Update but this time with the Build 19042.546. Builds that provide a list of enhancements, most notably the spatial audio solution in games or add-ons for Windows Mixed Reality.
