Microsoft’s recently announced Fluent Design System which is surely one of the most interesting announcements at the current year’s Build developer conference. The new design language which was previously known as Project Neon has already been seen in few native Windows 10 applications like Groove Music, Contacts or Calculator and now it looks like Outlook mobile application is going one of the new few apps to get Fluent Design touch.
According to Windows Central Report in Build 2017 session, Microsoft demonstrated an upcoming version of the Outlook app with Fluent Design platform. “The new and updated Outlook Mail client gets Fluent Design features like hovering over sidebar menus and items, light, animated motion when opening and closing certain UI elements, and acrylic for blur in some areas,” wrote one of my colleague in his recent Outlook Tech Support related blog and he also added that the new app will use a complete “borderless” design.

This new design is surely better compared to current Outlook app; however, it’s possibly not a complete story. If you watch the Fluent Design video shared by Microsoft, you might have noticed a couple of pictures of even more cool looking Outlook Mail app. It now looks that Microsoft has really started taking things seriously under current CEO SatyaNarayanaNandela.
The first picture mentioned below, which is also included at 0’57 in the video looks same like current Outlook mail app. However, you will see more buttons in the left menu bar, and it also looks like Microsoft have worked on the transparency effects toning them down in this one.
This second picture appearing at 1’00 seems quite different than anything else seen on Windows 10 till now. We are not saying that we are designers, but this one seems to have a flat design pushed to a whole new level giving complete new look and feel.
The change seems to be just with the design and not features which mean the current tech issues with Outlook mail will continue and the users still need to contact Outlook mail tech support number for solutions. Anyways, the new Outlook mail look will bring something refreshing with it which is a big positive.
In case if you have any issue or questions once the new Outlook mail app is officially launched, you can contact Outlook technical support number (+1) 844-502-0074 for quick Outlook email help. Outlook helpline number (+1) 844-502-0074 is available 24×7 which is a great help.
While switching to new Outlook App, if you have any tech issues or questions related to it, you can contact the Outlook Mail technical support number at (+1) 844-502-0074. Contacting Outlook helpline phone number is recommended when you get technical issues with Outlook as everyone is not technical and a small issue can waste hours.
Again, these couple of images can be mock-up just to demonstrate all available possibilities with new Fluent Design platform. According to Microsoft, their new design language is not just blurring and transparency effects, but it’s much more than that. Microsoft is looking to provide developers clear guidelines for creating UWP apps which are more intuitive and engaging than before. The first Fluent Design elements seen in select Windows 10 apps are resembling a taste we can get in future.
