Microsoft details Xbox's "faster, safer and easier" store redesign

Insider testing starts this week.

Microsoft has offered a look at its revamped and redesigned digital store for Xbox, which will be made available to at least some of those users signed up to its Insiders testing programme starting this Wednesday, 5th August.

The redesign is being referred to as the “all-new Microsoft Store on Xbox” (that non-specificity supporting earlier reports that no radical UI overhaul is planned for the next-gen Xbox Series X), and Microsoft calls it “faster, safer and easier” in its announcement post.

On the faster front, Microsoft says the store now loads in under two seconds on consoles, and offers “greatly improved” browsing performance.
