Like everybody I also know that Microsoft was temporarily using 'Windows 8-style UI' as a substitute for 'Metro'.

But very recently I heard it is going to be permanently replaced. Is it true?

If yes, why are they going to do it?

Hi,

“Metro” and “Windows 8 Style UI” are actually one and the same. It is the feature provided by Microsoft wherein users can customize their desktop applications in the form of tiles. Microsoft’s recent announcement was a mere situation of rebranding.

Meaning, instead of being called “Metro apps” it will be simply called “Windows 8”. It is for the reason that, according to Microsoft insiders, “Metro” terminology was more for the Microsoft team and not for the consumers. So don’t be confused. Check the photo below to see this tile feature.

Hello Saraah,

Microsoft decided to do away with the use of the Metro design name in the describing of the tiled interface that the Windows Phone has as well windows 8. Microsoft has revealed that the discussions that were held with the European partner which resulted into the discontinuation of the Metro branding for windows as well as other Microsoft products.

It has been reported that the windows team is working on the replacement term and it is planned to be out soon. But till now, the windows employees have been told to refer to the Metro style user interface using the name Windows 8 Style UI. The official replacement name is expected to be announced soon.

Regards,

Carl
