Windows UI Library

Follow WinUI on Twitter

The Windows UI Library (WinUI) provides official native Microsoft UI controls and features for Windows UWP apps.

WinUI is the easiest way to build great Fluent Design experiences for Windows.

WinUI can be used in any Windows 10 UWP XAML app, or in a Xamarin.Forms app running on Windows 10 using native view embedding.

Winners, keep an eye out for an email coming next week. We’re excited to keep working with you and evolving WinUI as your premiere UI framework on Windows!

WinUI 3.0 Announcement

At the Microsoft Build conference in May 2019 we shared our plans for WinUI 3.0, which will greatly expand the scope of WinUI to include the full native Windows UI platform.

For more info check out the updated roadmap and join the discussion in the 3.0 discussion issue.

Using WinUI

You can download and use WinUI packages in your app using the NuGet package manager: see the Getting Started with the Windows UI Library page for more information.


NuGet Package Build Status Latest Versions Documentation
Controls and Fluent Design for UWP apps
Build Status latest stable version
latest prerelease version
2.2 release
Low-level APIs for middleware components
latest prerelease version 2.0 prerelease

You can also build a WinUI package yourself from source. See Contributing to the Windows UI Library for more information on building and contributing to WinUI.

WinUI features


The WinUI Library provides some useful benefits when building apps for Windows 10:

  1. Helps you stay up to date
    WinUI helps keep your app up to date with the latest versions of key controls and features of UWP XAML and the Fluent Design System

  2. Provides backward compatibility
    WinUI is backward-compatible with a wide range of Windows 10 versions: you can start building and shipping apps with new XAML features immediately as soon as they're released, even if your users aren't on the latest version of Windows 10

  3. Makes it simpler to build version adaptive apps
    You don't need version checks or conditional XAML markup to use WinUI controls or features: WinUI automatically adapts to the user's OS version

Version support

The Microsoft.UI.Xaml 2.2 NuGet package requires your project to have TargetPlatformVersion >= 10.0.18362.0 and TargetPlatformMinVersion >= 10.0.15063.0 when building.

Your app's users can be on any of the following supported Windows versions:

  • Windows Insider Previews
  • May 2019 Update (18362 aka "19H1")
  • October 2018 Update (17763 aka "Redstone 5")
  • April 2018 Update (17134 aka "Redstone 4")
  • Fall Creators Update (16299 aka "Redstone 3")
  • Creators Update (15063 aka "Redstone 2")

Some features may have a reduced or slightly different user experience on older versions, particularly on builds before 15063. This should not impact overall usability.


For info on the WinUI release schedule and high level plans please see the Windows UI Library Roadmap.
