Microsoft has worked hard to appease Xbox users in recent months, from the improved Game Pass to the release of the upcoming Xbox Series X. Now, the company has unveiled a new-look Microsoft Store on Xbox that’s “designed to be faster, safer and easier to use than ever before”.
What’s Coming to the Microsoft Store on Xbox?
Microsoft announced the new Microsoft Store on Xbox experience in a post on Xbox Wire. There, the company details all of the new changes coming to the Xbox Store and how they will benefit you.
First, Microsoft states that the Xbox Store will load faster in general. When you start up the store, it will only take two seconds before you’re ready to browse. Each game’s store page also loads faster so that you don’t need to wait to see the screenshots and trailers.
The new Microsoft Store on Xbox will also be easier to use.
Microsoft has revamped the wishlist feature so that it’s easier to add games and check when they go on sale. The update will also make it easier to add games to your shopping cart, as well as managing what’ you have already added to your cart. The new Xbox Store also lets you view, buy, and wishlist games from previous Xbox consoles, all the way back to the original.
When the update drops, you’ll need to sign in to use the store. This is because your Xbox will now tailor recommendations to your past purchases and games. This system also protects children from viewing games outside of their age bracket.
When Will the New Xbox Store Arrive?
For now, Microsoft is pushing this update out only for Xbox Insiders. So, if you’re part of the Xbox Insider Program, you’ll get the update on August 5, 2020.
