It looks like some early code hidden in Microsoft’s Redstone 4 build 17046 has given us a look at the newly redesigned Game Bar for Windows 10. The image seen above (via Thurrott) shows what the bar will look like as the feature takes advantage of the Universal Windows Platform.
Some of the noticeable changes can be read below:
- The Game Bar itself is larger, translucent, and will support both light and dark modes
- The Xbox Live avatar bubble is gone and replaced with your Gamertag
- Several shortcuts have been added for quick access to your Xbox Live profile, Mixer profile, recordings folder, and settings
- A clock has been added
- A few broadcast settings can now be accessed through toggle buttons and switches
The Game Bar certainly looks more sleek and appealing and fits well within Microsoft’s Fluent Design system that the company has released across most of its platforms.
How do you think this looks? Is it an improvement? Are there any other changes you’d like to see? Let us know in the comments.
