Microsoft launches push-to-install apps and games feature for Windows 10 App Store

Microsoft Store on PC

Microsoft is launching a new feature called “push-to-install”
for Microsoft Store (formerly known as Windows Store) and
it allows users to remotely install apps and games on
other devices.

The new Microsoft Store feature was announced in a quest on the
Feedback Hub. The quest explains how you can download and
install apps and games remotry on other Windows 10 devices such
as a PC or Xbox One but it works only when the devices are
connected to the same Microsoft Store.

“Customers can purchase Windows apps and games from the
Microsoft Store app today but can only install to the local
device they are currently on. The Microsoft (or web site)
allows a user to purchase and install an Xbox game and have it
automatically pushed to their Xbox home console. Push to
Install feature will provide a broader solution to allow users
in the Windows Store App (or web site) to install any owned app
or game to any of their applicable Windows devices. A user can
now purchase a new game from their mobile phone, push it to
both their Xbox console and home desktop PC, when he/she gets
home both are fully installed and ready to launch,” the
announcement reads.

Microsoft Store remote installs

At the time of writing this story, the push-to-install
Microsoft Store feature is live on Microsoft Store for both
Insiders and non-Insiders. You don’t need to update the
Microsoft Store app to get the remote app installs feature, as
it looks to be a server-side update that is rolling out
