The Microsoft To Do app updated for Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices today. All three versions gained support for the new All and Completed smart list features, which essentially generate full task lists that have been created or finished respectively, but the more noticeable change made is to the Windows 10 app that’s been given some color back into its icon (see above image) after the previous update made it completely colorless.

The Windows 10 app tile does still ignore system color preferences so here’s hoping a future update gets rid of the gray as well.

Here’s the full release notes for the Windows 10 app update:

  • Want to have an overview of all your tasks? Introducing the All smart list, one of your top requested features. You’ll now see all your tasks grouped by list.
  • We didn’t just stop at the All smart list, we now also have the Completed smart list so you can also see all the tasks you’ve checked off. Enable both in settings.
  • If you weren’t a fan of your completed tasks mixing with the uncompleted ones, then you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve moved your completed tasks to the bottom. Now you have easy access to the completed tasks without them getting in the way of your productivity.
  • Did you notice that if you right-clicked on a task we would suddenly scroll you up to the top of the list? That wasn’t a new feature, just a bug. We’ve fixed it now.
  • You might have noticed that new tasks didn’t respect your top of the list settings in the Tasks list when you added them from a different smart list. They’ll now pay a bit more attention to your settings.
  • We made some accessibility announcement improvements on the last updated status in notes.

Here’s the release notes for the iOS app update:

  • Want to have an overview of all your tasks? Introducing the All smart list, one of your top requested features.
  • We didn’t just stop at the All smart list, we now also have the Completed smart list so you can also see all the tasks you’ve checked off.
  • If you weren’t a fan of your completed tasks mixing with the uncompleted ones, then you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve moved your completed tasks to the bottom. Now you have easy access to the completed tasks without them getting in the way of your productivity.
  • Coming from Wunderlist? We’ve made some improvements to our importer.
  • We fixed a crash that happened when you sorted a list while the app was syncing.
  • We made some accessibility improvements: VoiceOver now announces the change of state for the user consent button, and also announces the current calendar date when setting a custom reminder date.

And here’s the Android release notes:

  • One of your top requests was for a Today, Tomorrow, and Week view. We listened, and today you’ll see big changes to the Planned list.
  • Want an overview of all your tasks? Introducing the All and Completed smart lists. You’ll now see all your open tasks or completed tasks grouped by list. Enable both in settings.
  • We’ve moved your completed tasks to the bottom. Now you have easy access to the completed tasks without them getting in the way of your productivity.
  • Other bug fixes and improvements.
