Last week, Microsoft announced a redesigned Photos app for the Windows 11 operating system. Now, the company began distributing the new app to users who signed up for the Windows Insider program.
The new Photos app has an updated user interface to keep up with the modern UI changes in Windows 11, such as a new font, rounded corners, and a new shortcut. The app has also received a dark mode that will be available system-wide with the Windows 11 update. The app will support extensions that can be downloaded from the Microsoft store.
Windows 11 will be released on eligible devices as a free update starting October 5. It may take several weeks or months before you get the opportunity to update your computer. Aaron Woodman, CEO of Windows Marketing, says all computers will receive the Windows 11 update by mid-2022. Users will be notified as soon as the update is ready for their devices.
Windows 11 should bring many new built-in features, however, some will not be available at startup. For example, support for Android apps may not appear until 2022 at the earliest.
