Soon you’ll be able to download ebooks from the Windows Store. According to a new report from MSPoweruser, Microsoft is building a new section in the Store for Windows 10 to make ebooks available alongside apps, games, music, and videos.
Although the operating system doesn’t include a built-in ebook reader, the software maker has recently added epub support to Microsoft Edge with the ability to bookmark books and change reading styles. In addition, the company is also working to add a dedicated section for books on Microsoft Edge.
With these new features in place coming on the Windows 10 Creators Update, it appears that Microsoft is planning to have users purchase books from different publishers and authors, and read them using new version of the web browser.
Microsoft is expected to start selling books in the Store as soon as the Windows 10 Creators Update releases in April alongside many other features, such as Blue Light, new theme management system, pick up where to left off using Cortana, support for 3D and mixed reality, interface changes and a number of other features.
