A "Shopping Cart" has been one of the most requested features for the Xbox Store, and it looks like it's finally coming to Xbox One soon. However, if you're an Xbox Insider, you can test out the ability today. According to a post by an Xbox Program Manager, "Beginning today Preview Alpha – Skip Ahead, Preview Alpha, and Preview Beta can begin using the new Shopping Cart feature."
A digital Shopping Cart option allows you to collect various games and items, so that you can purchase them altogether. For example, let's say you wanted to buy multiple games on sale. Beforehand, you would have to purchase all of them separately, which is quite a hassle and time-consuming to say the least.
- You'll now see a "cart" icon in the Xbox Store which will navigate to the Shopping Cart.
- All game pages now have an "Add to Cart" button accessible from the "…" next to the "Buy" button.
- The contents of the Shopping Cart are shared between all platforms.
Hopefully the Shopping Cart will roll out to all Xbox One owners soon. We'll keep you posted when it does.
