What’s New in Windows 11: Microsoft Store

NESABAMEDIA.COM – Microsoft is redesigning their app store for Windows 11 in hopes of making it even more relevant and more open to developers. In this new version, the Microsoft Store has been completely overhauled with a new interface that matches the new design language Windows and make it easier and faster for users to find and download apps, games, shows and movies.

However, the most significant change is perhaps the new policy that allows independent software developers and vendors to bring almost any form of application to the Microsoft Store, including traditional Win32 (unpackaged .exe and .msi), .NET, and Progressive Web Apps (PWA), as well as the option to let them keep 100 percent of the revenue when using their own monetization platform.

Microsoft will continue to offer monetization technologies that allow companies to retain a small percentage of sales. However, developers will have the option of using their own monetization system.
