The Microsoft 365 application suite (the old Office 365) is being redesigned to adapt to the new design lines of Fluent Design. Just over a week ago, we informed you that Microsoft Teams will be no less and will also receive this update. Next, and thanks to our Windows Latest colleagues, we show you what the new Teams design will look like.
Fluent Design is a collection of design lines and patterns that Microsoft has been updating and implementing in their products for years. We can see examples of Fluent Design in the new Windows 10 start menu, the new Windows icons, the design of the new Microsoft Edge … We will see it soon in Teams too.
The importance of a new design for teams
The implementation of Fluent Design will not only be an aesthetic improvement for Teams, but also an improvement in functionality, as it tends to ‘rethink’ the way certain elements are displayed and how we can interact with them to create a user interface. more user-friendly.
Microsoft has confirmed that this Teams redesign will start reaching testers in November, and others will start receiving it at the end of December. At this time, this will only affect the web version.

As we see in the top images provided by Windows Latest, the change for Teams is not drastic but it is noticeable. The purple color of the sidebar is changed to light gray, so is the background of the chat column and the background of the conversation. App icons are updated and divider shadows are added.
It remains to be seen how the new Dark Mode will look after the Fluent Design facelift. We guess it will be a matter of days before we see it and we can share it with all of you. A redesign of Teams was a feature in high demand with many users, and while it’s not a drastic change, it does make the app look a lot more modern.
