Groove Music just got nicer looking for WIndows Insiders on the Fast Ring (with Skip Ahead to get the new app builds). Microsoft has added a few of Fluent design’s reveal highlights to other parts of the user interface which serves to make the app look more lively. The firm has also updated the font in the major headers of the app like the Albums, Artists, and Songs headers under my music.
Update: The option actually states visualisations, not viewers, we regret the translation error. This means that Microsoft will most likely be building in Zune like visualisations back into the music player, a feature that has been requested from the WIndows team for a while now by users who are still nostalgic for the Zune music player.
There’s a hint at new functionality with what appears to be an option called “Viewers”. Upon accessing it, users are greeted with a message noting that functionality isn’t yet available for the device. It could be interesting to see whether this is a hint at social listening with Groove Music — all the cool kids are doing it — or something else entirely.
Microsoft has been adding spaces of Fluent Design to its native apps in WIndows 10, and as Groove Music is (or will be) one of the most used built in apps on Windows, it’s good to see the team putting in some effort to make the app look less bland than it was when it first debuted.
