At Build 2019, Microsoft announced that it is expanding Fluent Design System to the web and other platforms including Android and iOS. During a developer session yesterday, Microsoft explained how it is utilizing Fluent on its own products through shared principles, patterns, tools, and documentation, and how developers can use these resources on their own applications. In order to enable developers to build Fluent Design-based apps across platforms, Microsoft has now released UI libraries for the web, Android and iOS. For Windows, it was already available.

Using JavaScript and React Native, developers can deliver Fluent Design-based apps across all four platforms. And yes, Microsoft’s .NET and Xamarin forms can also be used to target all these platforms. Watch the full session video below to learn more.
