With the release of Windows 11 last year, the company completely overhauled the Microsoft Store. It was one of the best new features in Windows 11 and has been reimagined to support UWP, PWA, Win32 and even Android apps. Today at the ongoing Build 2022 developer conference, Microsoft announced a host of new features for the Microsoft Store.
When the new Microsoft Store first arrived with Windows 11, only select developers were allowed to make their Win32 apps available to users. It’s not like that anymore. Any developer with a Win32 app can now submit their apps to the Store and easily provide them to users. Microsoft accepts unpackaged Win32 applications based on .NET, C++, Electron, Flutter, Qt, Rust, and other technologies.
