A new Windows Store update allows users to install Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps directly onto their Xbox One, no matter where you’re purchasing the app.
Previously, shoppers could purchase games from the Windows Store and have them remotely install on your Xbox One. Now, this same magic applies to apps that appear both on the PC Windows Store and Xbox Store.
While Xbox users may not be jumping for joy that they can finally download their favorite UWP apps from their desktops to their Xbox Ones, this move does signal that Microsoft will continue to find ways to integrate its three main platforms: Xbox, PC, and mobile.
The latest version of Windows Store will also feature a slimmer download bar that displays the active download speed of whatever app you’re installing.
