Microsoft released a new revamped MS Paint app for Windows 11. This app is available only with the latest version of Windows 11 in the dev channel of Windows insider. This also means that you won’t get the revamped MS Paint in Windows 11 version that is getting released on Oct 5th, 2021.
The new Windows 11 MS paint is entirely designed as per Microsoft. The Windows 11 new MS Paint app appeared with the latest version of Windows 11 dev build 22468.
The new features, fixes, and updates are released with the 22468 dev build of Windows 11. Am I missing a black theme for MS Paint? yes and you?
As per Panos Panay, this is the beautifully redesigned Paint app. However, I don’t know how many of you like the new redesigned MS Paint app in Windows 11 insider version.
But remember that Microsoft has almost 6-7 months to make this MS Paint better before the release in production with the next version of Windows 11 in the second half of 2022.
MS paint didn’t get updated with the Windows 11 upgrade process?
A few days back, I have updated Windows 11 10.0.22468 version. However, the MS paint didn’t get updated with the Windows 11 upgrade process. So I think the update of Windows 11 is independent of the MS Paint update.
The revamped MS Paint app appeared a few days after the upgrade to the latest version of the Windows 11 Dev channel. Did you also have the same experience?
Paint version -> 11.2110.0.0
