After announcing that both the Windows 10 and Xbox Store would be combined together, Microsoft followed it up by introducing a bunch of universal apps to the Windows Store from heavyweights like Starbucks, Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger, with more to come as the time passes. Most of these apps are currently still in BETA but the public will get to download and use these apps soon enough.

These will join already existing universal apps like Vine, Fitbit, Hulu, Twitter and more. Not only that but Microsoft will be allowing Facebook to take a dive into Microsoft’s user base and allow the company to serve ads inside Windows apps. This is actually huge big news considering the current Windows 10 user base is currently over 270 million in number and that the Windows Store has seen about 5 billion visits since its inception. This is a critical development for Windows as the number of users continues to increase with time and they look for apps to use on the Windows Store.
