Microsoft has done an admirable job of supporting the Xbox One with new features over the years, and today the company is extending some popular features to the Microsoft Store for Xbox and Windows Insiders. In a post on Xbox Wire, Senior Product Marketing Manager Chris Swenson said, "We work hard to improve the shopping experience in the Microsoft Store, and are always looking for ways to improve the discoverability and purchase of the products and services we sell. Today, we are excited to announce that customers can begin using our improved Shopping Cart and later this week, our new Wish List."

Shopping Cart

The Shopping Cart now works with games and apps for Xbox One and Windows 10. The feature is once again available for testing. Instead of having to buy games individually, you only have to go through the checkout process once. You just have to look for the "Add to Cart" button underneath the "Buy" button.

Wish List

Later this week, users can begin using the Wish List feature, which supports physical products, digital games, and apps in the Microsoft Store. You can access it on your console or other device. In order to add an item to the Wish List, you have to select the "Wish List" button underneath the "Buy" button. You can even make a Wish List public under Settings.

Note that the new Shopping Cart and Wish List are only available to Xbox and Windows Insiders right now. In a few weeks, everyone will get access to the features.
