Microsoft Continues Icon Redesign with Phone App Facelift 

After rolling out new icons for the Microsoft Office productivity suite, Microsoft is now planning a similar facelift for the Your Phone Companion app on Android.

After rolling out new icons for the Microsoft Office productivity suite, Microsoft is now planning a similar facelift for the Your Phone Companion app on Android.

Vishnu Nath, Director for Program Management, Microsoft Mobility, revealed the new icon on Twitter, as the company has now started testing the new design in the Google Play Store.

At first glance, the new icon comes in line with the design that Microsoft used for the Office suite, though it’s important to keep in mind that more refinements could be given soon. The new icon design should become available on Windows 10 very soon as well.

There are three different icons being tested right now, so it remains to be seen which one will make it to the market as the final version.Other improvements on their way tooFurthermore, Nath confirmed that Microsoft is also working on other improvements for the Your Phone Companion app, including not only design touches, but also new capabilities.

“Tons of new features and usability fixes are on tap - we are committed to making this amazing.  We hope to win you over soon!” the Microsoft engineer explained.

The Your Phone Companion app is specifically supposed to bring Windows 10 devices and Android smartphones in sync with quick access to messages and the photo gallery. Although a mobile app, it’s only available on Android because of the restrictions in place on Apple’s iOS.

“Unfortunately we don't have the necessary access to do so on iOS / the iPhone... We would love nothing more than to deliver this value to you,” Vishnu Nath explained when speaking about the chances of getting the app on iOS.

There’s no ETA as to when the new icons would become available for all users, but given the testing is already under way, it shouldn’t take too long to go live publicly.
