Just a few months after Microsoft announced its new visual language titled 'Fluent Design System', which is an evolution of the Metro UI, more and more apps are getting a Fluent Design makeover starting with Groove Music. This time though, it's the Xbox app that has received a minor spruce-up with a design tweak leveraging Microsoft's new design system.
At the moment, the single manifestation of Fluent Design on the Xbox app can be found in the expanded hamburger menu. Upon clicking the icon, users get to experience the new blurry 'acrylic' translucency effect which is Fluent Design's signature look.
The update was previously being tested in the Xbox beta app, but now all Windows 10 users may enjoy the glorious new effect. The design addition is also available on Windows 10 Mobile where the effect allows the app content behind it to blur through.
There is no doubt that this minor improvement won't change the user experience drastically, but it's a reassuring and positive sign that Fluent Design will soon become the mainstream for Windows 10 apps.
