Unless you’re beta tester of Windows 10, you haven’t experienced Microsoft Fluent design yet. The Fluent Design System will be introduced in the Fall Creators Update to be released on October 17. Up until then, those among us courageous enough to test Windows 10 in the Fast and Slow ring are already accustomed to it and I can say it makes a whole world of a difference. I showed the new design to an Apple fan who fell in love with the Surface Pro tablet before and he immediately joined the Windows Insider program to experience it and he loves it. As of now, not many apps have been updated yet, but Dropbox did.
If you are a Dropbox user, you may want to check for an update in the Windows Store to get a peek at what the Fluent design looks like. Basically, the Fluent Design is translucent, making the background to any open window blurry. It might sound simplistic, but having an entire OS offering such an experience is beautiful and impressive. And that is exactly what the latest update to Dropbox does. Microsoft, I assume, hopes more apps will follow Dropbox in blending their apps design into the OS.
Again, the Fall Creators update will be available to the world on October 17 and you will get to experience an entire new Windows experience on your device. As for me, I’m loving it on my Chuwi SurBook and Surface Pro tablets.
Should you want to see what I’m talking about, you can either join the Windows Insider program or patiently wait for the Fall Creator Update. In the meantime, get the latest Dropbox update in Windows Store. Besides the introduction of the Fluent Design, there’s more in this update. Just check the full change log below:
