Paint 3D adds a taste of Project NEON for Fast ring Insiders

Microsoft has been on a bit of a Project NEON spree lately, updating its various Windows 10 apps to integrate aspects of the new design language. The latest app to see an update with some Project NEON flourishes is the relatively new Paint 3D, which has been slightly overhauled for Fast ring Insiders.

Spotted by MSPU, the latest update to Paint 3D introduces a new translucent blur effect to the tool menu, consistent with some other Project NEON overhauls we've seen. In addition, the hamburger menu has been replaced with a full-screen affair that features all of the same options for saving and loading documents as before.

Paint 3D joins the two most recent apps to see a NEON overhaul, Photos and People, along with other recent additions like Groove Music. For now, Fast ring Windows Insiders on build 16188 for PC should be able to grab that latest update to check out what Project NEON has in store. We'll likely get more of a look at Project NEON's future at Microsoft's Build conference next week.
