Microsoft has started rolling out the renewed Microsoft Store for Windows 10. According to an employee of the company, not every user will see the update immediately, because the company opts for a phased introduction.

Since the end of October, interested parties can register for the Windows 10 Release Preview Insider channel to try out the renewed Microsoft Store. Rudy Huyn, principal architect of the Microsoft Store, writes on Twitter that the digital store is now coming to all users for Windows 10. This is happening in phases.

In the Microsoft Store, a new design has been chosen and new terms and conditions have been applied. It will be possible to add Win32 apps to the Store and developers will be able to integrate their own payment systems into their offered software. That way, they can bypass the 15 percent commission Microsoft charges when using their payment system. On Windows 11 it will also be possible to download Android apps. This is done through an integration of the Amazon Appstore.
