Microsoft has finally updated its popular Windows 8 app Mahjong to get full Windows 8.1 support and was revamped for Windows 10
If you are playing Mahjong on your Windows 8 device and have Microsoft’s popular game installed, then you have probably noticed that it has been updated. And it’s quite an important one since it brings full Windows 8.1 support. This doesn’t mean that the Mahjong app has been crashing in Windows 8.1, but just that it now makes use of the new features found in Windows 8.1
The official release note includes the following details:
- Optimized for Windows 8.1
- General bug fixes & optimizations
- Added the ability to reset your statistics
We didn’t get a much more detailed explanation for the update, as many developers choose to provide scarce release notes. But what we make of it is that you can, for example, pin to the start screen of Windows 8 a different size tile. Its description remains the same:
Microsoft Mahjong is the classic matching game updated with beautiful imagery, intuitive controls, and all the features that fans of Mahjong have come to expect. Enjoy gorgeous graphics and relaxing sounds with multiple themes to choose from. Complete E2puzzles at four levels of difficulty, perfect for mahjong beginners and experts alike. With the dynamic Undo system, you have the option of rewinding to fix mistakes.
Mahjong revamped for Windows 10
Mahjong and many other classic games received a fresh coat of paint after the release of Windows 8 OS. Solitaire collection and Mahjong App are now compatible with the latest Windows versions and you can enjoy them on your device.
In late 2016, Mahjong app received a major design update for Windows 10. Here’s what’s new after the update:
- A large variety of new themes
