Seeing as people were surprised by Notepad receiving a facelift, I wanted to point out that these app updates have been hinted at in the videos posted on Twitter.
I think they’ve been too slow to roll out so its possible that we could see the following apps updated in the future
We have seen Calculator, Clock / Focus Sessions, Notepad, Snipping Tool, Photos, Paint, Terminal, Teams, and Store.
We know about the following apps receiving updates:
- Edge Canary having the Mica in the menu bar like File Explorer and in the right-click context menu
- We’ve seen a new media player app UI which could be used in both ‘Films & TV’ and the ‘New music app formerly known as Groove’
- There’s an updated Your Phone app UI here: https://twitter.com/bojorchess/status/1444351050413080592
The following we haven’t seen much of the following:
- Calendar: This is surprising because Mail isn’t on this grid. It is possible that the new Calendar app will get refreshed and the existing Mail app is replaced by One Outlook.
- Camera: Possibly another UI refresh but hope there are some functionality improvements like a virtual camera that uses the Teams blurring/background that can be used for all applications.
- News: I think this could be replaced with the new Microsoft Start -https://twitter.com/vigneshponnuvel/status/1435252030113681415
- To Do: Either a WinUI refresh or a PWA wrapper for the Web Version
- Voice Recorder, Maps, Weather: Possibly a Win UI Refresh
