Microsoft Announces Revamped, Faster Xbox Store App

"The store loads in under two seconds now."

Microsoft is rolling out a new version of the Xbox Store this week to Insiders. The revamped store features some robust changes that are said to provide a significant improvement to browsing. According to the company, the new Xbox Store is far more than a typical app update. It has been rebuilt from the ground up to be faster, safer and easier than ever before.

The revamped Xbox Store app will roll out for Xbox Insiders on 5 August 2020. In addition, it will expand to other testers in the coming weeks ahead before being available to all Xbox One owners. The store gives users a taste of the experience they can expect on the Xbox Series X too.

Microsoft claims the store is now twice as fast as before. It can load in under two seconds and sometimes in less than a second. The new design and structure make it easier for consumers to browse for what they are looking for. The new Xbox Store App even includes the side navigation pane similar to the PC version.

Besides the visual tweaks, the new store also includes a focus on Game Pass and sales. These two features take top priority at the top of the page as you browse through the store. You can also now compare prices of different editions of certain titles. This allows users to nail down which version of the game includes what extra content.

There’s also a new parental control feature where users need to be signed in before they can browse the store. In addition, users can apply content filters to the store so younger gamers don’t see specific aged video games.

Other features include a “recently viewed” tab where the Xbox Store holds games you looked at before. This is helpful for gamers who often window shop (we all do this almost every day).

“The new Microsoft Store on Xbox is just the first of many updates we’re rolling out in the coming weeks, all built to keep the gamer at the center of the entire gaming experience”

Let us know what you think of these new store changes down below.
