The June 2022 Firmware Update is available for all Surface Pro X SQ1 and SQ2 configurations with Windows 10 20H1 and later. Please note that there is one known issue with the eye contact feature:

Symptom Workaround
There is an issue launching the eye contact feature in the February 28, 2022 update on devices that have the Windows 11 update installed.

To activate the feature (or disable it), you must toggle the feature in the settings. You will need to do this every time the camera is used.

  1. Select Start > Settings > Bluetooth & Devices > Camera > Surface Front Camera or Surface Rear Camera.

  2. Toggle eye contact function

Microsoft says it is working on fixing the issue in a future update. Thankfully, this isn’t as severe as a bug found in the May 2022 firmware update for the first generation Surface Go, where users were getting locked devices after installing the latest patches.
