Microsoft Starts Rolling out its new Modernized App icons on Windows 10

Microsoft is finally replacing its old app icons with the new ‘Fluent Design’ that the company adopted in 2018. Back in December, Microsoft released new app icons across 100 of its products, including Windows.

The company has begun rolling out the new app icons starting with built-in apps in Windows 10 for folks who are in Microsoft’s Fast Ring test group. The first apps to receive the new icons include Calculator, Groove Music, Mail, Voice Recorder, Alarms & Clock, Movies & TV, and Calendar.

From the newly adopted design, Microsoft’s app icons are now more colorful than ever, sporting soft edges and various color gradients. The company, back in December said the new Fluent material design was to help them make their apps resonate with users. Users prefer icons developed with depth, gradations, vibrant colors, and motion, according to John Friedman, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of design and research.

Microsoft has also adopted the same design aesthetics for its mobile apps which can be seen right from the newly introduced unified Office app.

This is just the beginning, and we will be able to see more changes coming across the board, including the Windows 10 logo. In Microsoft’s new Windows 10 variant dubbed ‘Windows 10X’ for dual-screen devices, the logo follows the Fluent Design System.
