Microsoft has updated release notes for Windows 11 build 25977, released in the Canary Channel on October 18, to mention new animated network icons on the lock screen and in the notification area.

[ADDED] The network icon in the system tray now animates when a connection is in progress. This animation replaces the disconnected globe when a network is taking time to establish internet.

According to Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Program Manager from the Windows Insider Program team, developers planned to ship those icons in the next build. However, as it turned out, they slipped into yesterday's build 25977, giving users a better indicator for when Windows 11 connects to a Wi-Fi network or initializes a wired connection.
