Rudy Huyn, the principal architect of the Microsoft Store, took to Twitter to post some good news earlier today, where he announced that the new, redesigned Microsoft Store will begin rolling out to non-Insiders starting tonight. Users who don’t get the update immediately will be receiving it later and Huyn assures it will be done “quickly”.
From earlier reports, it has been learned that Microsoft is working hard to make its Store app “bug free” for general Windows 10 users. The app was released to Insiders a couple of weeks ago and judging by the GA release happening today, it seems that the Redmond giant is satisfied with the feedback it has received so far. Although it may also be possible that the company has decided to overlook some of the minor negative responses for now.
Aside from the redesigned aesthetic, the new Microsoft Store supports a wide variety of APIs and technologies like Win32, .NET, UWP, Xamarin, Electron, React Native, Java, and Progressive Web Apps, which should make the life of developers easier.
