New screenshots of the new user interface for Hotmail has leaked onto the web today, showcasing a range of brand new user improvements. Again, Microsoft have unified their Metro UI by giving Hotmail a clean look, and a universal bar that has appeared across all other live services.

According to the post, Microsoft have also launched an opt-in service all Newmail, which is set to allow users to test out the Metro UI before it goes live to the public. This service isn't available yet. "We understand that “Newmail” will be available on an opt-in basis (at least for the beginning), so users who prefers the old Hotmail experience can continue to use it for a while."

It is unknown when the new UI is expected to launch across Windows LIVE services, we expect it to happen sometime around the official release of Windows 8.

It looks MUCH better now, glad they adapted some sort of Gmail-ish look to what they already had as a layout. Too bad Hotmail still sucks because of spam, junk filter, security problems, etc.

Hmm...it looks good, but I don't know. Since I've been using Hotmail since I was 10, I'm kind of used to its layout by now...still, it's worth a try.

I really like the updated look. I just wish they would make something where I could manage several of my windows live accounts at the same time or check to email accounts at once without having to log out. This does look more modernized.

Has anybody else had trouble with Hotmail the past few days? I was getting a really weird layout which didn't work at all...it's back to normal now though. I thought they were migrating to this theme, or something.

I haven't had any issues with any of my hotmail accounts.

The color scheme is awful but I guess it's better that they got rid of all the useless fluff. I was getting tired of the horrible snowballing trend of styles started by OSX.

i disagree, I really like the way this one looks. It might be the fact that I haven't liked some design elements with how it looks now. It might be the fact that I have been wanting a change to hotmail for a while.
