Window 10 Store updated: changes are under the radar

Microsoft updated the Windows 10 Store for mobile devices earlier today though there’s no changelog for us dig into in order to determine what was fixed.

While we cannot tell exactly what was changed with today’s update, it is possible Microsoft is laying the groundwork for something big. Bear in mind that the final and official version of Windows 10 Mobile will be released before the end of March. This update could very well be paving the way for some cool additions to the Store.

There are several other things the Windows team is working on when it comes down to the store, so hands are full right now. It will no doubt take time to get everything done, but at least we have signs that Microsoft has not yet given up on the Windows 10 Mobile platform in favor of Android and iOS.
