Microsoft has started testing the new Windows 11 Microsoft Store app on Windows 10 for Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Channel. Microsoft promised back in June that the new Store would also arrive on Windows 10 at some point in the future, and today’s preview is the first time Windows 10 testers can download and install it.

Just like on Windows 11, the new Microsoft Store brings with it support for unpackaged Win32 apps, the ability to discover Disney+ content, as well as the same fluid UI that the Windows 11 version has. There’s no Android app support, as that appears to be a Windows 11 exclusive feature for now.

Now that the new Store is in testing with Windows Insiders, it shouldn’t be long before the new Microsoft Store app is made availale to all Windows 10 users. This will be a big moment for the new Store, as it’ll be a point in which unpackaged Win32 apps become available to all 1.3 billion Windows users.

Windows 11 has only been on the market for a few weeks, so its reach has been limited compared to the more than a billion Windows 10 users. Bringing the new Store to Windows 10 should encourage more developers to get their apps into the storefront, as it’ll be getting their app in front of even more potential customers.

To begin testing the new Microsoft Store on Windows 10, just join the Windows Insider Release Preview Channel and check for updates in the Microsoft Store. In the meantime, are you looking forward to the new Microsoft Store on Windows 10? Or are you planning to upgrade to Windows 11 soon anyway? Let us know in the comments.
