In Windows 11 event Microsoft took a huge leap by introducing the Open Microsoft Store with many improvements and flexibility to third-party developers to use this platform. The company has redesigned the Microsoft Store from the ground up, making space for more content, keeping the user experience simple and responsive. This will be available for both Windows 11 and 10 users.
Microsoft Store: What’s New?
Now the company lets you discover and install the best apps, games, movies and even special offers – like unique movie discounts for Xbox Game Pass members. All the content in the Microsoft Store is tested for security, family safety and device compatibility, as per the firm.
Also, Microsoft confirmed the arrival of famous applications like Adobe Creative Cloud, Disney+, TikTok, Zoom, and some of their proprietary apps like Microsoft Teams, Visual Studio, and even Notepad and Paint to the new Microsoft Store.
Stories: Get introduced to the best apps and games with curated stories and collections which will keep you informed about the best apps and inspire you to achieve more with your device.
➤ Android Apps on Store: Run your favorite Android mobile games and apps on Windows by discovering Android apps in the Microsoft Store, and acquire them through the Amazon Appstore. This move came as a result of Microsoft’s partnership with Amazon.
➤ A “pop-up” store that helps install apps from the store, making it easy to install apps from the browser; when you click a Microsoft Store download badge on a web page, the Microsoft Store will pop up to manage the install – without pulling you away from what you were doing.
Making store more open for developers:
Windows developers can publish any kind of app, regardless of app framework and packaging technology – such as Win32, .NET, UWP, Xamarin, Electron, React Native, Java, and even Progressive Web Apps. Developers can sign-up here to publish desktop apps, or build and package PWAs using our latest open-source tool PWABuilder 3.
Additionally, app developers will also have an option to bring their own or a third-party commerce platform in their apps, and if they do so they don’t need to pay Microsoft any fee. They can keep 100% of their revenue.
