Recently Microsoft made an announcement letting insiders know that the built-in Windows apps will no longer receive any insider updates. In fact, all the added features will be disabled or disappear from the apps.
According to Microsoft the reason for this decision is that the insiders can experience and test the same version of apps that the general Windows users. i.e, non-insiders. However, those who chose to skip ahead to the Redstone 4 preview builds got an interesting update that added a little bit more fluent design to the Groove Music app in Windows 10.
Groove Music Gets Fluent Design Update
So, if you are one of those guys that are trying out the new Redstone 4 insider build then do try the new Groove Music app. As you can see from the below GIF image, there is a new lighting effect when you mouse hovers over albums and playlists. In case you are wondering, the right side one is the new version that is available in Redstone 4 preview build.
Apart from the added fluent design, an additional new feature called Visualizers has been added to Groove Music app. However, you still cannot use this feature. In fact, when you click on the option, nothing happens. Though this is a very small update with only minor fluent design changes, it still is good to see them in actual apps.
One thing to keep in mind is that this new update is only for Windows 10 PCs. Since there is no Skip Ahead option for Windows 10 mobile users, you need to wait until the official Fall Creators update has been released. If you are an insider and haven’t received any update on your PC then be patient. This is a slow rollout, so the update may take some time to get to your PC. That being said, manually check for the app updates in Windows Store.
Do comment below sharing your thoughts and experiences about the Fluent design update to Groove Music app in Windows 10.
