Today, Microsoft started rolling out a new update for the Microsoft Store app to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring which features more elements of Microsoft's very own design language, known as "Fluent Design". The Connected Animations effect from Fluent Design is now applied to app listings.
As you may already know, the previous update brought Fluent Design to the product listings. Now, yet another effect, 'Connected Animations', is now applied to the same area of the app. The following video demonstrates it in action:
As the user scrolls down on an app listing, the app’s name along with the install button will show up on the top of the store app.
The new effect is currently available to Windows Insiders only. It is expected to be rolled out to the public a bit later.
If you are a Windows Insider in the Fast Ring, check for updates on the Microsoft Store to get the updated app.
Microsoft released Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in October 2017. Currently, the company is focused on the next feature update, code named "Redstone 4". A number of builds of Windows 10 Redstone 4 were released to Insiders, bringing new features to the OS. For example, you can start apps elevated right from the Run dialog. Redstone 4 is expected to be released next year. It should be a much bigger upgrade compared to the Fall Creators Update. It will also include a number of long-awaited features like Windows Timeline and Story Remix 3D as well as Cloud Clipboard which was cut from the Fall Creators Update release. Microsoft is applying its Fluent Design bits to all the modern parts of the OS. Settings, Edge, Mail and Calendar are just a few examples.
