Microsoft’s Fluent Design language might not be on the Xbox One in its entirety yet, but individual pillars continue to show up one by one – and just like its desktop counterpart, you can take a peek at the Xbox One version of Groove Music to see how things will look when it’s all finished. Groove has used the Reveal effect when selecting items on its hamburger menu for a while now, but now the most noticeable part of Fluent is there in its entirety.

The Acrylic is only available on the hamburger menu at the moment, and it looks pretty good. It’s not the most major change on the world but it does what Acrylic does on every other platform: it makes things look just a bit nicer.

This update should be heading out to all Xbox Ones that are on the stable branch right now. You can head to the updates section in My Games & Apps to manually check and install it, although it might download automatically depending on your settings. We haven’t noticed any other major changes in this update, although there are a few minor ones – for example, you can now access the playlist in Now Playing by moving the left stick down on your controller.

Full Fluent Design will presumably head to Xbox One with the next feature update, which is currently planned to be available in some shape or form when the Xbox One X releases this November.
