It looks as if picking the perfect color for inking in the Word Mobile app for Windows 10 is about to get a little more interactive. As first spotted by Twitter user Ajith (via Windows Latest), Microsoft is testing a new radial color picker for inking in Word Mobile. The Word Mobile app is the free version of the app built for tablets and phones with a screen size of 10.1 inches or smaller.
The radial color picker would replace the flat palette currently used in the app. Judging by the example provided, you'll be able to quickly use the picker to scroll through several default colors, then rotate a dial through varying hues of the selected shade.
For now, it's unclear if this is an A/B test, or whether it will eventually make its way to the release version of the app at all. Microsoft performs all kinds of tests of features in its apps (and Windows) that may never make it to production. Still, it looks like a useful method of color selection that adds a little more pizazz to the app. If it does make it through the testing phases, it will be interesting to see if the radial picker eventually spreads to other ink-enabled apps in Microsoft's stable.
