Microsoft pushes out a new update for its Store app for Windows 10 Mobile and PC. The app has been updated to new version 11712.1000.109.0The latest Store app update is available for all Windows 10 PC and Mobile users enrolled in Insider Rings.

With the latest Store update, Microsoft has now added back the Acrylic effect to the hamburger menu and a subtle reveal effect. The Acrylic effect was removed by the company in the previous version due to the app getting slowed down and effecting the performance of the application.

Along with the Fluent Design the company has now removed the Music section completely on all of its contents. This is due to the company having already confirmed the abandonment of Groove Music.

You will now see a new option “Write a review” at the top next to the rating stars making it easy for users to review the app along with giving a rating to the application. With the Review option now added next to the star rating, it makes it easy for users to avoid scrolling down the screen to review the app.

There are also some improvements made to the Review page in the Store app with the latest update. The performance of the Store app has improved considerable in spite of the addition of the Fluent Design and is now lot fluid and responsive than earlier when the company had to remove the Acrylic effect since it effected the performance of the application.

As reported above this update is available for all users enrolled in Insider Rings and after successful testing will be pushed out to all Windows 10 users on PC and Mobile in the coming weeks.
