Microsoft accidentally leaks a new interesting Windows 11 app ‘Designer’

Written by admin

Microsoft is working on a new Microsoft Edge-based Windows 11 app called “Designer,” which appears to be a new service similar to Canva, a graphic design platform used to create images, presentations, posters, etc. for social media. .

Microsoft already has PowerPoint, a powerful tool for businesses or students to create presentations on any topic. Canva does the same, but it’s more user-friendly and anyone can easily get started with the service, thanks to its ready-made templates, a wide selection of fonts, and more.

While PowerPoint focuses on presentations, Canva offers more advanced designs and its interface is optimized for drag and drop. As a result, Canva is faster to learn and it’s also free, so you can quickly get your presentation or ads for Instagram, Facebook, etc. up and running.

Windows 11’s new “Designer” app is not intended to replace PowerPoint on the desktop operating system or the web. Instead, Designer aims to help students and small business owners easily create their own ads, promotional or marketing messages, presentations, and other visuals.

Microsoft Designer was briefly accessible at “designer.microsoft.com” to anyone with a personal or school account. Unfortunately, Microsoft has now patched the bug that allowed us to access the portal, but there’s a chance that Microsoft Designer’s public preview will be announced in a few weeks.

Designer, which appears to be a Canva-like web app, could be promoted as an all-in-one solution for students and businesses in need of professional-looking graphics, beautiful slides, Facebook ads, LinkedIn images, animated Instagram posts, and other brand assets.

Unlike PowerPoint, Microsoft Designer comes with templates, a picture library, shapes, and ideas for your Instagram or Facebook posts. Thanks to these features, it is possible to create dazzling creations in minutes,

According to the leaked app, here is a list of features:

  • Pre-designed templates can get you started.
  • Ideas shows you even more design options and helo pushes your creativity further.
  • Add your design to a social media post and share it with your followers.
    Microsoft Designer Format
  • Predefined canvas size: 1080x1080px for Instagram, 1200x628x for Facebook ads and 1080×1920 Instagram stories. The fourth option lets you get started with a custom size.

It is also possible to link your LinkedIn account and to post updates directly on the social media platform.

“By connecting your LinkedIn, you can post your designs from Microsoft Designer to your LinkedIn profile. Microsoft does not share any personal information with this application or store your password,” the leaked Microsoft document reads.

Most important of all, Microsoft Designer is optimized for beginners who know nothing about designing banners or art for their social media. In other words, you don’t need to know anything about design. That’s what makes it different and more interesting than PowerPoint, and it has the potential to become your favorite design app.
