Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is coming later this year and it packs, even more, new features than the previous update. Microsoft had also announced at Build 2017 about the brand new design language for Windows 10 called the “Microsoft Fluent Design System”. Microsoft’s Fluent Design system consists of 5 basic elements around which whole design works and they are Depth, Motion, Scale, Material, and Light. Fluent Design can be seen in the First Party Microsoft apps and many other popular apps like mytube etc. in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update builds.
With the build 16226, Microsoft has also brought the acrylic blur to the system notifications. The acrylic blur makes the notifications look beautiful because of the transparency and blur that glows the layer in the background. In build 16215 Microsoft had redesigned the Action Center with acrylic blur and new UI for much clearer information with cards. Have a look at this tweet from a Microsoft software engineer about this change in the notifications.

Notifications in Windows 10 would also be getting more features in the upcoming builds. Microsoft is currently developing is multi-step interactive notifications.Multi-step interactive notifications will allow interactive toast notifications that will have multiple steps of interactivity. One thing that is clear is that Microsoft would be offering a lot of Fluent Design language changes in the upcoming build.
