A new Microsoft Store will arrive in both Windows 10 and Windows 11. During the presentation of Windows 11 on Thursday, Microsoft unveiled the store's new user interface and confirmed that it would support a wider variety of application types. .
Probably the only interaction you've had with the Microsoft Store in recent years was downloading the Xbox app to use Xbox Game Pass and not having to use the store again directly. The store itself doesn't have exactly the best user interface, and trying to crawl the apps you want becomes a chore. The updated digital storefront is skyrocketing to make browsing for new games and applications less of a nightmare.
Aside from the sleeker new look, Microsoft promises an easier-to-use, better-preserved digital storefront. “We rebuilt it to get speed,” said Panos Panay, Microsoft’s director of products. "It's beautiful. So easy to use, the search is amazing and still the safest and safest way to get your applications on Windows."
Thanks to a partnership with Amazon, Microsoft Store will include Android mobile applications and games which work perfectly in Windows 11. Users will also be able to install apps from their browser when they click on a Microsoft Store download badge, without having to open the store directly to download things like Spotify.
The new user interface is welcome, but this is probably the most important revision of the store: it will now support more types of applications, including Win32, .NET, UWP, Xamarin, Electron, Java and more.
“We make sure there are all the apps you need,” Panay said during the presentation. "For the developers out there, let me talk to you. First, you are our heroes. What you do, what you build, inspires us. But we also want you to be able to bring any technology, the technology you like, to the store. Whether you built it or are building it now, whether it's a PWA, a Win32 or a UWP, we just want you to be able to take it to the store. That's our goal. "
Clearly, Microsoft wants to increase the interest of developers in this new store and attracts developers with a new option that seems to allow them to keep 100% of the revenue they make on purchases from the app.
"As of July 28, app developers will also have the option to incorporate their own or third-party trading platform into their apps, and if they do, they won't have to pay any fees. "They can keep 100% of their revenue," he says Official site of Microsoft. Currently, applications and games sold through the Microsoft platform operate in an 85/15 division for applications and 88/12 for games.
You can check out the new Microsoft Store in the next version of Windows Insider and see the differences for yourself. Expect to see the release of Windows 11 later this year.
