Little by little Microsoft is bringing user-requested features to the Windows 10 OS for PC and Mobile. Today, we see a small but popular request put to action: transparent live tiles.
The default MSN Weather app for PC and Mobile today was updated to version 4.17.72, but only for those in the Insider Fast Ring (we haven't tried the other Insider rings just yet). The standard production branch is at 126.96.36.199.
The big change is simply that by default the Weather Live Tile is now transparent. Previously, the Live tile was always a blue color with clouds reflecting the current weather conditions. If you prefer the old style, there is no need for concern as transparency is an option under the app's settings.
In the scheme of things, this is a small addition, but it goes a long way for those on Mobile who desire a clean, clear Start screen. Hopefully, Skype won't be too far behind.
For those on production aka non-Insider builds, you'll likely get the update within the next few weeks.
Thanks, Loren B., for the tip!
