Microsoft Windows Console now supports 24-bit colors. Microsoft added this new feature in recently released Windows 10 Insider Build 14931. If you are Fast Ring Insider member, check out the latest addition.

Official Post,

We’ve updated the Windows Console to support full, glorious 24-bit RGB true color. This is actually a little tricky to demo since most Windows apps only support 16 colors at most whereas the Linux world has broadly supported 256 color terminals for a while now, and 24-bit color is becoming more established. Thanks to our ability to run Linux apps and scripts using our new Bash on Ubuntu on Windows environment atop the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), we can use some Linux scripts and tools to demonstrate the Console’s new 24-bit color support:

We’ve not yet started work on improving the console properties page to support the Console’s new color rendering capabilities, and we’ve not modified the default Windows color mappings; we’ll be making improvements here, and on the many, MANY other features queued-up in our backlog in future builds.
