Microsoft rolls out new Microsoft Store app icon to the public

Microsoft Store Icon Colorful Fluent 256 2

The built-in Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 receives a brand new icon. We have already seen it before, but it was not available in public builds of the OS. This has changed.

Windows 10 comes with a number of Store apps preinstalled. The user can manually install more Universal Windows Platform apps developed by Microsoft and third-parties from the Store when needed. It is also possible to purchase apps and other multimedia contents using the Store app.

The Microsoft Store app allows you to update apps automatically. This is enabled by default. It caches some details about installed and available apps to speed up the process of browsing them and improving the responsiveness of the Store app. If you are using a Microsoft account, your apps will be available across all your devices thanks to the 'My Library' feature of the Store.

The new icon for the Microsoft Store app follows Microsoft's fluent design system. Here's how it looks:

This updated icon is another step in direction Microsoft took with their intention to create a set of new icons for all platforms.  Microsoft is known for making new colorful icons for Windows 10. The new icons were expected to be used in a special edition of the OS for dual-screen devices, Windows 10X. However, Microsoft has made icons available across the entire Windows 10 family.

All the known icons are below.
