What does Microinteractions mean?

Microinteractions are subtle and interactive design elements or animations within a user interface (UI) that provide feedback, guidance, or engagement for users. Microinteractions are small, context-aware actions that enhance the overall user experience by responding to user actions or system events.

Examples of microinteractions include button hover effects, toggle switches, progress bars, notification badges, and sound notifications. Microinteractions help convey system status, acknowledge user input, and guide users through processes.

Designing effective microinteractions contributes to user engagement and usability in digital interfaces.
