What you need to know

  • A Disney+ app will be available on Windows 11 through the Microsoft Store.
  • The app briefly appeared during Microsoft's Windows 11 announcement.
  • Windows lead Panos Panay highlighted that he loves seeing Disney+ in the store.

Alongside the announcement of Windows 11, Microsoft unveiled a new Microsoft Store. For a brief moment, you could see the Disney+ app appear within the store. To make sure no one missed it, Windows lead Panos Panay highlighted the fact that the app was available.

Just as the store appeared during the presentation, Panay said, "Oh, that's cool. I love seeing Disney+ in the store." It was quick aside to highlight one of the major additions to the Microsoft Store.

Panay quickly moved on to the rest of the presentation, so we didn't get any other details about the Disney+ app in the Microsoft Store. We're not sure if it will be a progressive web app (PWA), an Android app through the Amazon Store, or an app utilizing another technology. There's a good chance that most people won't care what technology it uses, as long as it works.

You can already watch Disney+ on Windows 10, but you have to do it through a browser. You can install Disney+ as a Windows 10 app, which provides a good experience, but it's not quite the same as having a dedicated app.

Microsoft showed a new commmitment to developers and the Microsoft Store during its Windows 11 event. Other big names, including Adobe are putting their apps into the Microsoft Store.
