The Microsoft Store on Windows 10 will soon get a host of new features.

Three new features have been revealed for the Microsoft Store, according to a leak on the Italian store.

First spotted by Aggiornamentilumia, the updated store includes a new navigation panel, a wish list feature, and the ability to install apps and games on multiple Windows devices remotely.

The navigation panel appears on all store pages by default, and lets users directly navigate to various categories of apps and games. This expands the current panel, which at this time only has three sections: home, apps, and games.

The wish list works as you’d expect, and you’ll be able to add games and apps to it from their store pages.

Finally, remote installation allows users to remotely install apps and games on other Windows devices using the same Microsoft account. An early version of this particular feature is already available on the store, but it’s now being expanded.

It’s not clear exactly when these new addition will roll out to the wider store users, but we don’t imagine them being that far behind.

Thanks, MS Poweruser.
