Get an early look at the wish list feature coming to the Microsoft Store

Microsoft has been inching forward with a new "wish list" feature for the Microsoft store for the past several months, but it's still very much a work in progress. But if you're looking forward to stacking up all of your most wanted apps and games in one place, you can now get an early peek at how the feature will work.

Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia posted a quick video of the feature in actions, showing off a new toggle that will let you either keep the list private or make it public so you can easily share your wish list with others (via OnMSFT).

It's unclear when we can expect the feature to get a proper launch, but it should be a welcome addition as the Microsoft Store catches up with other retailers and app stores.

  • So close, yet so far. I hope it will send us notifications when items in our wish list go on sale
  • That's the killer feature of the Steam wishlist, so I'd hope it's only a matter of time before they add this to the Microsoft Store.
  • Feedback it😉
  • Don't waste your time on feedback. This wishlist feedback including notifications is as old as the Microsoft store and the feedback system.
  • This is long overdue!
  • Indeed.
  • Wish list? WISH LIST? We have been asking for the ability to uninstall applications from the store for years, and you give us, WISH LIST?
  • uhh wish list is pretty high up there too, so yeah WISH LIST.
  • I believe this is coming in one of the future updates already in progress, there was an article about it recently posted here. I'd link it if I could find it. That said, you can still get rid of them now if you really, really want to, but you'll need to use a third-party tool that runs the Powershell commands to do so.
  • Why a store when they aren't interested in the consumer business.
  • So you're damned if you do and damned if you don't
  • How many years to late??? Steam has had it for years... I've our purchased many games because I got an alert.... About a sale.
