Microsoft announces redesigned version of Sound Recorder app for Windows 11

Microsoft has announced that Windows 11 is getting an updated version of the Sound Recorder app which is previously known as Voice Recorder, intended for creating simple recordings from a connected microphone.

According to reports, the new Sound Recorder app brings a new interface that matches the modern design language available across the system. 

For instance, the new interface features rounded corners, the mica semi-transparent material, new icons, and new visual elements and controls.

The company in a blog post wrote, “you’ll notice that there is a beautiful new visualization for audio during recording and playback to complement the new look and feel of the app.

“We’ve also added support for changing your recording device and file format from within the app, which were among the top requested features in Feedback Hub,” Microsoft said.

Microsoft has been updating many other built-in Windows apps with new features and fresh designs. Paint, Notepad, Photos, and the Snipping Tool all received major updates that bring them in line with the look and feel of Windows 11.

More recently, Microsoft turned the outdated Groove Music app into the new Media Player, which is continuing to receive new features (like CD playback).

The new Sound Recorder app is available for testing for Windows Insiders on the Windows 11 Dev Channel.

It’s not clear yet when the new app will roll out to everyone with Windows 11, but when it does, it will replace the older Voice Recorder app.
