Windows 10 Fall Creators Update brings lots of changes and among them, the introduction of a new yet subtle look to the operating system titled  Fluent Design that is quite similar to Aero, featuring new blur effects and cool transparency.

Fluent Design main features

Fluent Design is a new design language for Windows that Microsoft described a while ago as being an eloquent design system “for a complex world”.

Fluent Design introduces five primary building blocks: Depth, Light, Motion, Scale, and Material.

Light focuses on highlighting and focus-drawing due to artificial light. Depth involves working in a pseudo-3D environment.

Motion implies that off-screen elements slide into view and almost everything is animated, while Material is about interaction and Scale involves scaling the design system from 2D to 3D.

Fluent Design changes come with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Fluent Design is Microsoft’s opportunity to look at a complex world and make it more eloquent, focusing on aesthetics rather than function. It involves a design evolution that results in a language for a multi-sensory and immersive experience.

These changes are available with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, but it seems that even more improvements and changes will be introduced in the future across both services and applications.

Microsoft just released a one-minute video for users excited to get a taste of the new updates without having to update their operating systems just yet. If you were one of the many who didn’t like Windows 8’s Metro design, you’ll be happy to see the direction Microsoft with Windows 10.
