Despite Windows Phone is officially dead, a new update released to the Messaging app earlier this month took the users by surprise. With the last update, Microsoft had revamped the design of the Messaging app with Fluent Design elements. Today, yet another is rolling out and as the title says, it has removed Fluent Design from the Messaging app.
Windows 10 Messaging app has been updated to version 3.37.23003.0 and the company has removed the Fluent Design from the app. We are not sure why Microsoft has rolled back the changes, but it’s likely that the next update will once again add the Fluent Design.
The update is available for Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring and it comes with no other changes. Despite the death of Windows Phone, Microsoft focusing on Messaging app once again hints at the Surface Phone and Windows 10 on ARM, it’s all just a matter of time until this happens.
The Messaging app for Windows 10 is designed to provide SMS management for Windows 10 devices. Back in 2017, Microsoft stopped updating the app as the software giant working was on Skype after the removal of its integration from the Messaging app.
The new versions are certainly unexpected, but it could be related to Always Connected PCs with Windows 10 ARM or mythical foldable Microsoft mobile device. Since the Fluent Design has been removed, it remains to be seen if the update will still be shipped to the production ring.
