Last week, Microsoft released the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10, the update introduced a new design language called ‘Fluent’. The Fluent Design language system was announced back at Build 2017 event, it basically improves the user interface elements with blur and other effects. “You’re going to see Fluent Design show up in the Windows shell, in our apps, and across devices,” Joe Belfiore said at Build 2017 developer conference.
With the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft implemented some of the elements from the Fluent design system, the changes are also noticeable in first-party and as well as the third-party applications. Microsoft earlier confirmed that the new design language will be implemented over time and will change based on feedback.
A few users were quite disappointed because Microsoft implemented only parts of the new design language but with the Redstone 4 update, the operating system will be finally getting a major update in terms of the interface as Microsoft plans to implement Fluent Design elements in other parts of the operating system.
Some new leaked screenshots have revealed that the Windows 10’s Settings app will be finally getting the touch of Fluent Design. As you can see in the above screenshots, Microsoft has polished the UI and improved the layout of the Settings’ home page.
The screenshot is from an unreleased build of Windows 10 and it could be possible that the next Redstone 4 preview build will include similar changes. The Windows 10 Redstone 4 update will be released in Spring 2018 and it will be a major update, unlike the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
