Microsoft’s Groove Music gets a splash of Fluent Design on Xbox One

Aspects of Microsoft’s new Fluent Design aesthetic have been spotted in the Xbox One version of the Groove Music app shown to some Xbox Insiders. The app hasn’t appeared to have been given a full revamp but the menu has been given a transparent effect (called Acrylic) and menu press animation has apparently been refined. Here’s an image of the new look:

Microsoft has been adding aspects of its new Fluent Design to several apps with their Office apps on mobile being one recent example. The majority of their apps across Windows 10, mobile, and Xbox One will likely be fully converted to the new look before the end of 2017 around the time the Autumn Creators Update rolls out on Windows 10.
