Windows 11 Store gets OBS Studio, Canva after Microsoft policy change

The new Microsoft Store for Windows 10 and Windows 11 comes
with some long-awaited changes to the business model and
interface. Microsoft Store is getting a brand new design, a
search experience, a new app download/install experience,
Android apps integration via Amazon AppStore, and more.

More importantly, Microsoft is trying to make its app store
open to everyone. Unlike Apple or Google, Windows Store will
promote unprecedented “freedom” for developers, with Satya
Nadella saying that ‘Windows has always stood for sovereignty
for creators’ and Microsoft will continue to support
developers.

Microsoft has relaxed the Store policies and developers who
want can now bring their apps and games to the Store. The
new Microsoft Store, which is also coming to Windows 10 later
this year, will allow apps regardless of the framework used to
build it.

As a result, you can expect UWP (modern) apps, Win32 (.exe,
.msi programs), Electron, React Native, web apps, and APKs in
Microsoft Store.

One of the great examples of that is OBS Studio, which is an
open-source video editor tool Written in C, C++ and Qt. Earlier
today, OBS Studio app was published in the Windows 11 Store by
the OBS foundation. Additionally, Microsoft has started rolling
out WinZip, Canva, Zoom, and Disney+ in the new Store.

While Win32 apps support has been enabled in the early builds
of Store,
Android apps support will be introduced via Amazon Appstore
later this year.

In addition to third-party apps, Microsoft has promised that it
will publish Visual Studio, Teams and other programs in the
Store. The company will be highlighting the best apps through a
feature called “Stories”, which will make it easier for
developers to promote their apps and it will also help users to
find them.

Microsoft Store and web browser integration

In the Windows 11 builds, Microsoft is testing support for a
new feature called “pop-up store” and it can help users locate
an app on the Store through your web browser.

The pop-up store, which will appear on web pages, will allow
users to easily manage the install without opening the Store
itself.

Microsoft’s vision for new Store

During the event, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 11 Store
aims to unite all stores and app frameworks in a single
platform to help users get the app they want.

To support developers and new vision for Store, Microsoft has
announced 100 percent sales revenue for developers using
third-party commerce platforms.
