What you need to know

  • The Microsoft Paint app just got a new update with two new features.
  • The update brings a new brush slider and a new tile to the Layers panel for a better drawing experience with more customization options.
  • These features are only available for Windows Insiders in the Dev and Canary channels.

Microsoft Paint received a significant update in November of last year. It shipped with OpenAI’s DALL-E 3 technology and a new Cocreator tool that lets users transform ideas into digital art by describing what they’d like to create. 

And as it now seems, the company is looking to unpack even more tools and neat features onto the app via a new update, according to a spot by PhantomOfEarth on X (formerly Twitter).
