It’s a busy week for Microsoft as the company has pushed a new feature update for Windows 10 that comes with some new features and unfortunate bugs. This morning, Microsoft also pushed out a server-side update for Store on Windows 10 Mobile with several new changes.

The change is apparently taking place server-side, so there’s no new version of the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft Store is getting a design update that makes it look and work like a web app on Windows 10 Mobile. The same design changes were previously rolled out to Windows 10 desktop users and today you can try them on your Windows Phone.

Microsoft Store for Windows 10 Mobile

First and foremost, the new Microsoft Store UI on Windows 10 Mobile appears to be half-baked. You will come across several UI glitches but the overall performance remains unchanged. There’s a new UI for the app pages and there’s also a new look for ‘System overview’ and ‘Reviews’ column.

The highly-anticipated remote app install feature is now live in the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 Mobile. It’s another half-baked feature and it doesn’t seem to work properly.

By the looks of things, you cannot remotely install apps and games on your Windows Phones but you can install apps on your PC if it’s running Windows 10 April 2018 Update or newer.

    YA LO HABIA NOTADO DESDE HACE TIEMPO IMPLEMENTADO PERO SOLO EN PELICULAS Y TV ES GENIAL QUE YA LO IMPLEMENTARAN DE FORMA GENERAL EN TODOAS LAS APPS. :)

      Ya era hora, despues de tantos años, y ya con el Titanic de Windows Phone hundido, que por fin implementen algo que en Android ya por el 2012 ya utilizaba.

        Pues si pero cuando los equipos moviles sean prácticamente una mini tableta con windows 10 no creo que ningún android ni iphone pueda hacer todo lo que un dispositivo con windows 10.

    Updates in Mobile? What happend?

    • Charles Clarke

      Yup and Office Mobile received updates today. The issue is 64 bit. And the limitation on Memory for x32 ARM. Windows 10 on ARM solved that issue, now they are migrating phone features to that… I’m so looking forward to Surface Phone if it ever happens, but for now my Alcatel Idol 4S, the thinnest phone in existence to date will tide me over. Perfect and seamless integration with my car, home, and Xbox One. Can’t argue with a few bugs, but there are work arounds. I love my, love my Microsoft Phone. But the directions through phone speakers while playing Bluetooth music is probably the best innovation in the last 10 years of phones. And it was last year for Windows Mobile 10 as everyone claimed it was already abandoned… There also a free app that can get you HBO and Showtime…

        I have Idol 4S and yes it has annoying bugs. 950XL is still the best windows mobile device…
