Type out your response and have it spoken out loud in real time when you use Live Captions during a phone call or FaceTime call or with any video conferencing app on your Mac.
Before installing macOS Ventura, make sure you have ample free space on your Mac. The installation process can take a while, so be patient. Although the new version has been through a rigorous beta process, it will still have a few bugs and issues. Some users reported problems with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, unusual battery drain, app instability, and UI lag. There are also reports of Exchange issues, which can cause your Mac to crash or run slowly.

MacOS Ventura also includes a new feature called read receipts, which allows users to mark unread texts on their Macs, so they can recover them later. This feature is also available on iPadOS 16 and iOS 16. The new macOS also adds a feature called Shared Tab Groups, which enables you to work with other users on shared bookmarks and landing pages.

Another feature of macOS Ventura is its ability to handle multiple windows. The new macOS will automatically move the first open app to the left of the screen, allowing you to keep several windows open. You can even drag files directly onto the open windows. Another new feature is the ability to use the iPhone as a webcam.

As with iOS, macOS Ventura includes some new features to help make the operating system more secure for those who use a Mac. It also includes a new version of Game Center, which includes a redesigned dashboard and stage manager. Additionally, it includes a new Weather app. It also removes the need to use passwords when signing in and out of applications.

Stage Manager is one new feature in macOS Ventura that makes working with multiple apps and windows a breeze. It lets you organize windows into groups that are more specific to a specific project or task, and allows you to easily switch between them.

MacOS Ventura is available for developers today as part of Apple's Developer Preview program. Developers can get the new OS for free, but it is also important to be aware that if you are not a developer, you might be unable to access the Developer Build. You can get a developer account by enrolling in the Apple Developer Program, Public version will be Available on 24 Oct 2022.
