Microsoft has announced today that it has started rolling out an updated Paint app for Windows 11 insiders who are flighting the Dev channel builds. In terms of what's new in the update, the app is gaining the Windows 11 styled design theme for "Edit colors" and "Resize and Skew" dialog boxes. The company also notes that other dialog boxes for the various options will also be similarly updated.

We have updated the “Edit Color”, “Resize and Skew”, and other dialogs to match the style of the new Windows 11 design and fit in with the new Paint app backdrop.

The blog post for the announcement has also provided the two images (below) for examples.
