Microsoft appears to be rolling out a new update for Windows 10’s app store on both Mobile and PC. The update is available for everyone (non-Insiders) and it advances Microsoft Store to version 11705.1001.42.0. With the latest update for Store, Microsoft is improving Fluent Design, search bar and more.

As noted above, this version brings both bug fixes and visual improvements like more Fluent Design touches.

The update basically improves the interface of the Microsoft Store. Previously, Fluent Design came to the Microsoft Store only with the acrylic effect, so with this update, Microsoft is bringing reveal effect to some parts of the Store.

In addition to Fluent Design, the Microsoft Store app is getting other design improvements, and the visual makeover is finally getting better.

You’ll now notice the reveal effect on both PC and Mobile. The search bar, on the other hand, will appear as an icon on PC, instead of a bar.

Microsoft has optimized the homepage on mobile, it will now display three apps per grid. Microsoft Store is getting new fonts, and the company has also changed the icon of download option. You’ll be able to browse all reviews in the Store. The update has also improved the performance and fixed the reported bugs.
