On September 22, Microsoft rebranded the Windows Store to the Microsoft Store. The rebrand comes with a revamped logo which replaced the original. Microsoft is currently rolling out the new Store update to Windows 10 testers on the Release Preview Ring, even if the new store will not significantly change apart from its name and logo. Still, Windows 10 users might notice that the taskbar icon for the store now also has a shopping bag and a company logo.
Microsoft Store is available on all devices running Windows 10
The update was already released for Windows 10 Mobile but only a few users received it. Then, Microsoft terminated the rollout process. On the other hand, almost all Windows 10 PCs from the Release Preview Ring have received this update. For now, it looks like you can’t update the Windows Store on Windows 10 Mobile because you cannot update some first-party apps on PCs.
But don’t worry, because Microsoft is aware of the issue and is currently working on finding a fix for the bug.
The issue turned out to be a backend bug that caused a problem for the Release Preview Ring Insiders, preventing them from updating the apps on the Windows Store. As Microsoft is working intensively on this matter, the bug will probably get fixed pretty soon and the company will be able to go on as planned with the rebranding of Windows Store on Windows Phones as well.
Ss soon as the update becomes public, all of our Windows 10 smartphones will receive it and we’ll be able to check it out!
