Microsoft Store hosts apps, games, hardware, TV shows, extensions and more which makes it different from the other available platforms. Microsoft recently added a new Departments drop-down menu in the Microsoft Store app. The company is currently testing the menu which provides various types of content that users can find in the Store.

Here’s how Departments menu is categorized

Discovering all types of apps, games, hardware and more that the Store holds can become quite a challenge and this happens as a result of the navigation system which is not one of the most straightforward systems. With the help of this new Departments menu, content should become better showcased for users and they can find whatever is that they’re looking for much easier. The menu is categorized into four key areas: Devices, Entertainment, Deals and Software & Apps.

Each one of the categories includes five areas in which you will be able to find content in the Store. The Entertainment category showcases Movies & TV, Books, Xbox, Mixed Reality, and PC Gamins and so on.

Even if the change does not seem this huge, it will definitely end up helping users to find much easier what they are interested in. You can also find new content that you didn’t even know was lurking in the Store.

The drop-down menu is currently in A/B testing

It seems that the Departments menu is currently being tested and not everyone will get to see it. Microsoft has a few changes that target the Microsoft Store in mind such as the navigation menu and more. All these will probably come with an upcoming update. The company showed off some of the enhancements that are currently in the works in a Fluent Design-based session at Build 2018. There will be an improvement targeting the horizontal navigation UI and more.
