  • You will also notice faster navigation and UI tweaks.

The Microsoft Store app for Windows 11 is getting updated to version 22205.1401.3.0 for devices enrolled in the Dev Channel with several new improvements.

The update brings five main improvements. If you use the store to download apps on ARM64 devices, the new update brings native support for the platform that translates into faster and better performance when using the app.

When updating apps manually, the Microsoft Store will now skip apps running on the desktop to prevent losing any critical work that hasn’t been saved.

If you come across an Android app available through the Microsoft Store, you will now see a pop-up to install it on Windows 11.

When navigating the app, you will notice that the experience is now noticeable faster, and the viewing options interface has been updated for movies and series to view all the options in a single list.

The new version of the Microsoft Store will download and install automatically. However, you can always force the update through the “Library” section in the app and clicking the Get updates button.
