2.   Visual Studio IDE

IDE means new personalization settings. Visual Studio 2022 will provide more abilities to customize the IDE to sync the settings across devices. If you are using multiple dev boxes, you will be beneficial from that.

3.   Multi-Platform Apps

Visual Studio 2022 will have full support for .NET 6. So, you can build multi-platform apps (Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS) using the .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI).


Apart from that It will also help you to quickly build modern, cloud-based applications with Azure. Apart from these, Visual Studio 2022 will also include performance improvements while running diagnostics and debuggers. It will make a good real-time collaboration using the Live Share. If you are using Git or GitHub, Visual Studio 2022 will have the full support and improved code search.

Debugging & Diagnostics

  • Attach to process dialog improvements
  • Exception helper improvements
  • Force Run to Click
  • Memory Dump Diagnostic Analysis

.NET Productivity

  • Introduce parameter refactoring can move a new parameter from the method implementation to its callers.
  • Track Value Source for data flow analysis
  • Option to underline variables that are re-assigned
  • Added search option in Generate Overrides dialog
  • Quick info for XML <code> tags now preserve whitespace and CDATA blocks
  • Find All References window will now group multi-target projects
  • Refactoring to remove repetitive types in Visual Basic
  • Go to Implementation will no longer navigate to members with abstract declarations that are also overridden.

Razor (ASP.NET Core) Editor

  • Hot Reload support in Razor files
  • Performance improvements
  • Formatting and indentation enhancements
  • New Razor editor colors
  • TagHelpers are now colorized and have quick info classification support and completion tooltips
  • Angle brace highlighting and navigation for Razor constructs

Hot Reload

  • Hot Reload (for both .NET and C++ code) makes it possible to make many types of code edits to your running app and apply them without needing to pause the apps execution with something like a breakpoint. In this release we continue to improve this feature, highlights include: Support for C++, .NET Hot Reload when running without debugger (CTRL-F5), support for more types of edits and more.

Trusted Locations

  • We have revamped the “Trust Settings” functionality and can now show a warning whenever untrusted code (e.g. files, projects or folders) is about to be opened inside the IDE.

XAML Live Preview

  • XAML Live Preview is now available for WPF developers as a first preview of this new experience. With Live Preview we enable the ability to capture a desktop apps UI and bring it into a docked window within Visual Studio, making it easier to use XAML Hot Reload to change the app and easily see the changes as you make them. This feature improves the XAML Hot Reload experience on a single screen device, while also making it possible to polish the apps UI with tools such as deep zooming, rulers, element selection and info tips.

Remote Testing

  • Very early experimental preview of enabling running tests on remote environments such as linux containers, WSL, and over SSH connections.

Azure Cloud Services

  • Azure Cloud Service (classic) and Azure Cloud Service (extended support) projects are now supported.


  • We have released a new JavaScript/TypeScript project type that builds standalone JavaScript/TypeScript projects with additional tooling. You will be able to create Angular and React projects in Visual Studio using the framework version installed on your computer.
  • JavaScript and TypeScript testing is now available in the Visual Studio Test Explorer

Issues Addressed in this Release

  • Fixed an issue where a website failed to load when running ReactRedux with IIS Express.
  • Fixed an issue causing error message: "Uncaught ReferenceError: notifyHotReloadApplied is not defined".
  • Fixed a failure to connect to the server for 6.0 signalR projects when using Ctrl+F5.
  • Corrected an issue where the include search order may be incorrect when prepended to "Include Directories".
  • Fixed Database Project: Dragging a file from solution explorer into an opened one is deleting the file from the file system!
