Acrylic material is coming to the new Windows Store Fluent Design in Windows 10. While elements of Fluent Design have already spread to other key core apps in Windows 10, the latest update to Windows Store for Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring also now gives Windows 10’s digital app store a brand new acrylic coat of paint. The new design is great, and offers exactly what Microsoft is promising for the Acrylic focus of the Fluent Design language: backgrounds with a little bit of transparency. It’s a slick look, and while we’ve only been able to see it in the Windows Store, that’s enough to get a good understanding of what Microsoft is trying to get Windows 10 to look like.
If Microsoft has already started deploying Fluent Design to things like the Windows Store in their Insider builds, we can expect a big uptick in more Fluent Design in the near future. If you want to try out the fancy new Windows Store, you should be able to download it from the Windows Store updates menu.
