Fluent Design for Microsoft Edge and Eye Control arrives in Windows 10 with latest Insider Preview

Microsoft is today releasing another new build of Windows 10 for PCs, as well as Mobile devices. Windows 10’s latest build, 16257, for PCs includes two new major features. As for Mobile, build 15237 includes the usual minor fixes.

With today’s release, Fluent Design is here for Microsoft. Fluent Design’s Acrylic material will now appear in the top/titlebar section of the app browser, which you can see in the screenshot above. Fluent Design looks pretty gorgeous in the latest version of Microsoft Edge, but it’s only a touch of the design system. It’s not clear whether Microsoft plans on adding other elements of the Fluent Design system to the browser in the future, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Another big new feature in the latest build is Eye Control, a new feature in the OS which will allow users with special eye-tracking software to control Windows 10 with their eyes. Eye Control is launching as a beta today, and it will allow owners of the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C to interact with almost everything in Windows 10 with just their eyes. Microsoft has integrated Eye Control into the modern keyboard in Windows 10, and you can also use your eyes to control the mouse in the OS which is very neat.

Build 16257 includes some other big changes, including a new color scheme for the Windows Console and improvements to the Windows Defender Application Guard. Be sure to checkout the full changelog here for the detailed list of changes.
