It’s always nice to see things getting a much-needed change.
Today, Microsoft has announced the all-new Microsoft Store on Xbox. It’s been redesigned from scratch to be faster, safer and easier to use than ever. We don’t know when the new store will be rolled out to everyone, but Xbox Insiders will begin to see some changes as soon as August 5th.
Players can look forward to the store performing twice as fast as before and launching quickly so you can find what you need in a jiffy.
To make exploring the store easier, the Microsoft Store on Xbox will have a fully redesigned navigation system, allowing users to jump all over the store for their shopping needs. The wishlist function has also been rebuilt so that players can add new games to the list and check on sale pricing for those items. The shopping cart will be updated, too, making it easier to add items to your cart and view them before purchasing.
Microsoft has emphasised a focus on safety, promising that the new store will be a better place for families to shop for gaming and entertainment. Customers will have to be signed into the Xbox account before they can browse the store, and parents can control what access child accounts have. It also means that the store can offer a more personalised experience for the user.
And that’s just a few of the changes that are coming to the Microsoft Store for Xbox. To read the full list of changes, head over to the Xbox Wire blog.
If you’d like a chance to participate in the beta you have to be an Xbox Insider. To learn more about how to become an Xbox Insider you can go to the webiste here.
