Microsoft’s Fluent Design is Robust, But There’s Plenty More to Come

October 17, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The revelation of Microsoft earlier this year had promised us of subtle changes that would come along with the company’s software in the future, particularly with the adoption of Fluent Design. Now, the first part of that is gearing up for release tomorrow with the arrival of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Sure, users would be treated by a bunch of new design changes, but do keep in mind that those would just be the beginning. That’s because Microsoft will be having more in the offing in the coming months. In case if you don’t want to wait to see what’s new, you can take a short tour of the new additions in the demonstration video that has been showcased by Microsoft.

As with the new design changes, most of them are attributed to introducing blur effects wherever possible. That’s not quite new to the Windows ecosystem, as we have already seen a shade of that in Windows Vista earlier. But it definitely looks refined this time around.

To further enhance the Fluent Design, Microsoft has kept its focus on tweaking light, depth, motion, material and scale for the new design. All these come along with improved animations that impinges a fluid feel when it’s being interacted with.

The Fluent Design is coming out as the successor to Microsoft’s Metro design, and it will find its place across numerous areas including apps and services on Windows, as well as on Android and iOS platforms.

Further additions to the new design will be added in the coming update for Windows 10, which is currently codenamed Redstone 4. The initial tests have already begun for this update, which is expected to make its footfall by March next year. Apart from design upgrades, Microsoft will also add capabilities to Cortana that will make it surf through your browsing habits for better optimized results.
