MSN Weather updated for Fast ring Insiders with a transparent Live Tile

Microsoft updated its MSN Weather app for Windows Insiders on the Fast ring today, bringing the version number to 4.17.72.0. The big new feature for the app is a transparent Live Tile.

Such a feature has been heavily requested for some time; Weather is one of very few Microsoft apps that comes pre-installed on a Windows phone and doesn't include a transparent tile. Users are bound to switch their focus to the new Skype Preview app, which launched as recently as the Anniversary Update but still has a solid blue tile.

In you're simply not feeling the transparency, you'll still have the option to go back to the old Live Tile. It's on by default, so to get rid of it, tap the hamburger menu on the top-left, select Settings, and toggle off the option that says "Transparent live tiles".

The update is live for both PCs and phones, but only for Windows Insiders on the Fast ring. You can download or update your MSN Weather app right here. If you're on the Production ring (non-Insiders), you'll likely see this update pushed to you within the next few weeks.
