If you have been paying close attention, then you probably noticed that Microsoft’s Windows Store app has picked up a small update for Windows 10 users. However, the change wasn’t documented, so we don’t have an official changelog yet.

Windows Store for Windows 10 gets a small update

But if you are using the Windows Store often, then you will notice that it now has a new music collections feature which contains curated sets of albums by “Groove Editors”. If you ask me, it’s just another way to get users to start using the relatively new Groove music service, which is the rebranded version of the Xbox Music app (if you happen to experience crashes in Windows 10 when using Groove, here’s a guide on how you can try and fix that).

By the looks of it, the new music collections feature isn’t similar to Groove’s “Recommended for you” option, but it’s one step forward done by the Windows Store team for improving music discovery.

While we weren’t able to notice any other new features in the updated Windows Store, there have been voices suggesting that everything feels just a tiny bit snappier. You should also know that this minor update was rolled out to both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

This update is also said to have take care of several bugs, one of them being related to the Live Tile settings. What about you – what did you notice different?
