Microsoft Store gets a makeover this year just in time for the release of Windows 11. The new store is already looking promising with reputable partners on board, including Adobe, Zoom, and Disney Plus. A partnership with Amazon also means access to Android apps that can run on your Windows 11 computer.

All kinds of apps are on Microsoft Store, plus a large collection of movies available for rent and purchase. There’s also plenty of popular shows you can buy with complete seasons of The Walking Dead and its spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, Shameless, and Better Call Saul just to name a few. Even the complete seasons of South Park are on here, as well as new episodes of Rick and Morty.
Buying movies on Microsoft Store can go as low as $4.99 during weekly specials, while rental flash sale can get you to rent movies for as low as $0.99. Some blockbuster movies are also offered with up to 45% off.
As part of its Windows 11 announcement, Microsoft makes a new policy change that will allow developers to keep every penny their Windows app makes. While the 100% revshare option doesn’t apply to games, it’s still something that Apple and Google don’t have right now.

- Android apps now available
- Additions of Teams, Office, Edge, and Visual Studio
- Rent movies or purchase TV shows and films on Xbox, Windows, and via Microsoft.com
From being a small video-sharing site to becoming a global service influencing popular culture, internet trends, and generating internet celebrities, YouTube has since evolved into a giant online video sharing and social media platform that still provides ad-supported free content to its billions of users.
