Microsoft wants to make it easier for its users to download apps from the Microsoft Store so it’s adding a new feature which is going to do just that. The feature will enable users to remotely install apps on any PC they’re signed into directly from the store’s website. This isn’t exactly a new feature for Microsoft as it was present on its ill-fated Windows Phone operating system.
The feature wasn’t exclusive to Windows Phone as well because it has been possible to do just this for Android devices through the Google Play Store for quite some time now. This does happen to be the first time that Microsoft has brought this feature to the PC.
Users would previously be prompted to open the Microsoft Store on their PCs when they opened an app page on the website of the Microsoft Store. However, this nifty feature enables them to browse the app page from anywhere and use the option to “Install on my devices” to automatically get the app on their device. This option can be used to install any app that’s already registered to their Microsoft account on any of the PCs that their account is logged into.
The feature only appears to be available for a small section of Windows 10 users at this point in time and it’s likely that it will be rolled out to more users in the near future.
