Some Office Insiders reported that they have already been able to try out the mica blur effect in Microsoft Word on Windows 11, while the others fail to access it even though they have received the latest update to Word. Microsoft is taking its time rolling out the mica blur effect. This effect can match the application window to the wallpaper color, changing the look of your computer.
In a support document, Microsoft gives an detailed explanation for “mica”:
“Mica is an opaque, dynamic material that incorporates theme and desktop wallpaper to paint the background of long-lived windows such as apps and settings. You can apply mica to your application backdrop to delight users and create visual hierarchy, aiding productivity, by increasing clarity about which window is in focus. Mica is specifically designed for app performance as it only samples the desktop wallpaper once to create its visualization.”
Compared with the acrylic blur, the mica blur requires fewer system resources for the reason that it merely samples from a PC’s wallpaper. It is said that the mica blur effect has been seen on several apps, like the Settings app and the File Explorer, on the new operation system of Windows.
