According to the company (via The Verge), typically, you will see weather information, but if something important happens, the icon will show the latest announcement. These notifications are meant to be quick and glanceable. After some time, if you don’t interact with them, the Taskbar will return to the weather information. The feature has been in the works for some time, and it was previously expected to arrive with version 22H2, but the company is making it available now through a new Windows Web Experience Pack update. Although this feature may be useful for many people, it’s not something everyone wants since it can add unnecessary distractions. If you don’t need this feature, you can permanently remove the Widgets icon from the Taskbar by going to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and turning off the Widgets toggle switch from the “Taskbar items” section.
