What you need to know

  • Recent reports claimed that a new Microsoft Store app was rolling out to Windows 10.
  • There is not a new Microsoft Store app shipping to Windows 10 at this time.
  • There is a minor update to the Microsoft Store that improves its UI for some Dev channel Insiders.

The Microsoft Store recently received an update on Windows 10, but it is not a "new Microsoft Store app" or even a major update to the Microsoft Store. Instead, it's a minor update that improves the UI of the Microsoft Store and some other aspects of the app.

When a report came out calling it a new Microsoft Store app, Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc clarified the situation.

While it isn't a new Microsoft Store app or a major update, there is a noticeable change in the app. The Microsoft Store app now looks the same when you resize it. It also has an updated progress ring for downloads.

Aggiornamenti Lumia and LeBlanc briefly discuss the update in a Twitter thread. It appears that the update is on the Dev channel but is not available for all Dev Insiders yet. According to LeBlanc, this is standard practice for how Microsoft releases updates like this one.
