Microsoft’s arguably uninspired and unsightly Microsoft Store app is getting a complete makeover. The news comes from Windows Central, which reported that the redesign will not only introduce a modern and fluid user interface but make it easier for developers to bring Win32 apps to the Windows 10 store. Microsoft’s new Store app is expected to launch this fall with popular first-party apps such as Teams, Office, Edge, and Visual Studio.

Microsoft wants to position the Store as an open platform that allows for the best apps on Windows to be easily discovered by users. Apps that were turned away in the past for using their own update or in-app purchasing systems will now be allowed. These changes should allow apps like Google Chrome or Adobe Creative Cloud to be discoverable in the Store, though time will tell if these developers actually come.
