Microsoft Store Gets Improved Design in Windows 10

Posted on July 20, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 14 Comments

Microsoft is rolling out a new look for the official Store in Windows 10. The company has been making a lot of changes to the Store ever since it unveiled Fluent Design, and the latest update brings a beautiful new look for app and game listings in the store.

The improved look for app and game listings includes new animations, as well the depth effects (read: drop shadow) from Fluent Design. With the improved look, the Microsoft Store looks much like what it was supposed to look like when Microsoft first teased Fluent Design. The new design looks identical to the new online Microsoft Store where Microsoft redesigned product listings with a modern look several weeks ago.

Here is how the game listings look:

The update, first spotted by Aggiornamenti Lumia, also brings a new option to install apps remotely on other devices from your current device. This works much like you can install apps on your Xbox One from your PC, and it’s been available to Insiders for a while now.

Microsoft is slowly rolling out the update to all Windows 10 users, so you may not get the update instantly. Even if you do have the latest update, you may not have the new design as it seems to be a server-side update which is being rolled out in different stages.
