Windows 10 Spring Creators Update redesigns the Game Bar

Back in November the first image of the new Game Bar redesign in the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, formerly known as Redstone 4, surfaced online. It featured a more sleek look with noticeable improvements to integrate it better with Microsoft’s Fluent Design system.

Xbox’s Mike Ybarra has now tweeted out another picture of the new Game Bar, this time featuring it in dark mode as opposed to light from the first image.

It appears virtually the same as it did back in screenshot from November. A clock has now been added along with several shortcuts to allow for quick access to your Xbox Live profile, Mixer profile, recordings folder, and settings. The Xbox Live avatar bubble has also been replaced with your Gamertag.

As we reported yesterday, the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update will also field your notifications while gaming. Ybarra stated that this feature will be called Focus Assist and it allows users to “set which kind of alerts and notifications you’d like to receive by default, and even set up special states for when you do (or don’t) want to be bothered.” Focus Assist can be enabled for all games.

The Windows 10 Spring Creators Update will reportedly release on April 10.
