Microsoft Store app gets more Fluent Design acrylic looks with the latest Insiders update

2 minute read

Following on the footsteps of the Microsoft Store update on Windows 10 Mobile, the Microsoft Store PC app also got some brand new Fluent Design acrylic looks.

The Fluent Design system is apparently the next big hit for the company after it worked so hard to spread it to the most important areas of Windows 10.

Windows version 11710.1001.13.0 brings new changes

The update is available for both Fast Ring and Release Preview Ring Insiders. The latest version brings a more visible acrylic effect on app pages, especially in the areas where the title and the developer data is listed.

With the help of this change, users will be able to see through to the background image of the app page or an app video if it’s supported. Take a look at the most important changes that come with this update:

  • Users have a new option to turn off video auto play in the settings.
  • Review stars were moved from the area under the developer name just next to the developer name.
  • There is a new status message in the download and updates section that will show users when they have updated all their apps and there are no more updates available, ensuring you that you are good to go.

The update is currently rolling out to Windows Insiders

All these changes are being rolled out only to Windows Insiders for now. On the other hand, considering the way that things have previously gone, these updates may also be coming to the desktops of standard Windows users as well pretty soon.

We can also expect to see more bits of Fluent Design such as the ones included in the new Mail and Calendar update making their way to more Microsoft apps in the upcoming months.
