Ever since the new operating system came out, the Redmond-based tech giant took it upon itself to also revamp each and every corner of it.

That means applying the same sleek Windows 11 design to all of the apps and elements of the OS, to make it feel more like a whole than just a makeover.

Now, the Voice recorder app has been modernized and brought to the year 2022 with the same Windows 11 design language that everyone fell in love with.

Say hello to the new and improved Sound Recorder

After Paint, Clock, Notepad, Task Manager, Snipping Tool, Photos, and Media Player, Microsoft decided to also redesign Voice Recorder.

Not only the design has changed, but also the software’s name. Voice Recorder is now Sound Recorder for Windows Insiders in the Dev channel, and the update is available in the Microsoft Store for public testing.

Packaged with this stylish new look are icons, controls, and layouts. There is also a new visualization for audio during recording and playback that looks somewhat iOS-inspired.

Besides all the bells and whistles, the tech giant also added the option to change the recording device and select file format within the app.

Thus, if you have more than one microphone connected to your PC, you can choose the one you need directly on the app’s main screen.

Furthermore, different recording formats are available in the settings, and you can pick m4a, mp3, wma, flac, and wav.

Sound Recorder also allows you to change audio quality and select the theme (light, dark, or system).

Where can I get the new Sound Recorder?

If you want to take it for a spin, you can download the new Sound Recorder from the Microsoft Store with just a few clicks.

That is if you aren’t already a Dev Channel Insider, in which case you already have it after the latest update, along with the new Task Manager for Windows 11 22H2.

More good things are to come for the latest operating system, according to voices from the Redmond company, so we just have to wait and see.

Don’t forget that Sun Valley 2, as Windows 11 22H2 is also called, is RTM and we should see it available pretty soon.
