Windows 10’s Fluent Design System is influencing every app, feature, and menu across Microsoft’s entire device family like a Halo Flood infection … but in a good way.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Fluent Design System, Microsoft has designed it with platform agnosticism in mind. Fluent Design incorporates translucency, material textures, and shiny cursor feedback animations in preparation for future paradigms, such as 3D holograms found in Windows Mixed Reality and HoloLens. The Fluent Design System is all about motion and usability, without sacrificing style. And now, it’s coming to Xbox One (along with a load of other new features).
This week, Xbox Insider Program testers in the Alpha Ring will get the first taste of what’s on the horizon for the Xbox One, which not only brings new features, but a new design to the dashboard itself as part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
