Microsoft has made the new Microsoft Store in Windows 11 available to Windows 10 testers. The new app store will soon be available to all Windows 10 users.
Software giant Microsoft has started offering its new app store in Windows 11 to Windows 10 users enrolled in the Windows Insider program.
Updated with a completely new user interface, Microsoft Store also allows downloading popular Win32 applications such as Discord, Zoom, VLC Player, TeamViewer, and Opera internet browser that was not available on the platform before.
Rudy Hein, the chief developer of the Microsoft Store, said on Twitter that they first introduced the new app store to Windows 10 testers to make sure it didn’t contain any bugs, and then made it available to the general public immediately afterward.
The new Microsoft Store allows developers to publish unpackaged Win32 applications to the store, including regular EXE and MSI files. It also allows them to use their own content delivery network (CDN) for updates and use their own payment service to avoid interruptions in in-app purchases.
