Microsoft Store app

There’s a new tab for buying Windows devices that came with the latest update of the Microsoft Store app. This means that Microsoft is not done updating the Store as lots of people anticipated.

This new layout comes right before the Redstone 4 update that’s due shortly. Besides a new addition of Edge Extensions. Microsoft also added a new category, Devices, in the latest update of Microsoft Store version 11802.1001.11.0 and it rolled out across all releases of Windows 10.

What’s new and changed with the Devices tab

Devices tab explains itself, and it’s basically a separate area where Microsoft can flaunt all the latest Windows hardware including Harmon Kardon Invoke, Surfaces, PCs from Dell, HP, Xbox consoles, Windows Mixed Reality, headsets and various accessories. We’re looking at the same catalog stocked online in Microsoft Store’s web version.

Customers can also pre-order hardware

Besides buying new hardware with a single click, Microsoft Store’s customers will also be able to pre-order things such as the new upcoming See of Thieves Xbox Pro Charging Stand. This process allows users to pick a shipping and payment address the same way as the web store.

The features of being able to buy devices from the Microsoft Store is not a new one, but a dedicated tab area is a new addition. The addition of the full Microsoft Store to the Windows 10 app of the Store has been in the making for quite a while now, and it will turn out to be really successful for Microsoft and its OEM partners’ sales.

It’s not sure if the new Devices tab is currently available everywhere because its appearance may depend on whether the Microsoft Store online is supported in your region or not.
