Microsoft today pushed out a new update for its Paint 3D app for Windows 10 users. The latest update pushes the app to version 4.1805.15037.0 and it comes with minor improvements.

Users of the Paint 3D app will now see a new reveal effect on the ribbon display icons. The reveal effect is noticeable when users hover the mouse over the icon.

The new reveal effect is from the Fluent Design language system and enhances the look loof Paint 3D. The app has already received many new features since its inception for Windows 10 users.

Microsoft in its previous update added a new Magic select option which lets users copy the cutouts from a photo to use them in different pics or applications. The improvements to the Magic select option were rolled out to Windows 10 users with the April 2018 Update.

The update for app also includes its new set of bug fixes and performance improvements over the previous update. Microsoft with its last major update to the Paint 3D app also introduced support for Remix 3D integration. The Remix 3D integration allowed users to upload and also download 3D objects.
