Add another one to the list of app that will get an uplift in the upcoming Windows 8.1 (codename Windows Blue). We are only a few days away from the launch of the public preview version of the OS, and new details regarding the changes continue to float up.

Over the past month or so, keen eyed users have unearthed several changes that Redmond has planned for the built in apps that are included in its flagship operating system.

Another such app that is going to receive a major redesign in Windows 8.1 is the preinstalled Travel app. This new redesign is supposed to streamline the application, make it less confusing and offer a much simpler experience to users.

As you can see from the screenshot above, the new Travel app is based on the same Metro UI design philosophy that debuted with Windows 8 and can be spotted in several other Windows 8.1 apps like Xbox Music and Video.

Of course, Bing Travel is just one of the many apps that are getting a new coat of paint in Windows 8.1.

Microsoft seems to have improved and enhanced almost all other apps that area built into its flagship operating system, giving them a design overhaul along with an upgraded feature set.

Speaking of which, more details on the features that are to be available in this particular application will be revealed next week during the BUILD developer conference, where Windows 8.1 is poised to make its first public appearance.
