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.

Ever since the update, we’ve been navigating through the Store in the hopes of finding any. So far, we can say for certain that no cosmetic changes have been made. It doesn’t feel any different before the update, either. The version number did experience a bump to 2016.29.13.0, for those who wish to know.

Microsoft and the Windows team is currently working on improving the Windows Store in a huge way to keep developers and customers happy. Developers request improvements to the review system to help give their apps more exposure. This is mainly for the smaller development houses that lack the funds to go on an advertising spree.

Developers are also asking for changes to the in-app purchasing system while customers would love for improvements to the search algorithm. According to some users, searching the store regularly brings up irrelevant information.

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.

Now, if only some of those cool Android and iOS apps Microsoft released in the past few months could make their way to Windows 10 Mobile…
