Microsoft recently announced that it plans to give users direct access to language packs from Microsoft Store. In other words, users would be able to bypass Windows Update and directly download and then install language packs from Microsoft Store just like it’s done with apps and games.

After this announcement, it seems that the company also wants to release fonts in Microsoft Store.

Install fonts directly from Microsoft Store

Instead of downloading font file and then installing them from all kinds of websites, it seems that you will soon be able to install fonts straight from Microsoft Store with just a simple click.

The Arial Nova font was already spotted in Microsoft Store. You can check it out for yourself, and you’ll notice that it’s a subtle redesign of the traditional Arial family. This is most likely suitable for document headings and paragraphs. The Arial Nova font description also states that these fonts are designed for languages that use the Latin script.

Regarding the introduction of language packs in the Store, Microsoft uploaded a series of language packs included Catalan, Russian, Valencian and more. Users are advised that after they install the language app, they select the Launch button to navigate to Windows’ Settings app. From there, they’ll be able to control their language preferences including the Windows display language.

Microsoft Edge also needs to enter the Store

The news that Microsoft already introduced fonts in Microsoft Store was spotted by WalkingCat, the famous Microsoft leaker. By bringing language packs and fonts as well to Microsoft Store, Microsoft made a smart move.

But besides this, users would probably appreciate more if they said Microsoft Edge web browser would land in the Store because the browser needs frequent updates to be able to keep up with the competition and including it in the Store would definitely turn out beneficial.
