Leading up to the 2017 Creators Update for Windows, the Movies & TV app was redesigned from top to bottom. Movies & TV is the default video player for any Windows 10 device and is used by hundreds of millions around the world. The redesign increased user engagement and helped to move the business forward.

I led the UX and interaction redesign of Movies & TV and helped to introduce a new top navigation to help make the full app experience more discoverable for the core XBox customers. Through the addition of the 'Explore' section the app also offers movie trailers, 360° videos, a broader browsing experience from the store, as well as personalized recommendations.
Several virtual reality headsets were released at the same time as the Windows 10 Creator's update, and Movies & TV was chosen to showcase the 360° video VR experience. A 360° virtual reality view required a unique solution for our playback controls and postroll experience which I was part of early on in the conceptual stages.
The redesigned Movies & TV experience provided a new elegant experience across PC, tablet, and XBox while improving user engagement and business goals. Our design also helped Windows to shape and prove out the newly announced fluent design system.
