Microsoft China Official Store - Windows

Since 2015WindowsSince Phone was deprecated, Microsoft has been spending time trying to find ways to support the Windows Store without the need for developers to use UWP, first through the Centennial application, which allows developers to use their win32 code unchanged, and then recently Through PWA (Progressive Web Application), it allows them to use their web code without change.

Microsoft's recent efforts are to allow developers to access UWP APIs directly from previously deprecated platforms such as .NET, Windows Presentation Foundation, and WinForms, such as geolocation, Windows AI, machine learning, and more.

According to Thurrott, UWP is now "end of game" and developers believe there is no reason to support a way to address only the needs of some Windows users and ask them to re-encode the platform of existing applications.

UWP's weaknesses will also affect Microsoft stores, and we now see users can install PWA applications and browser extensions directly from the network, and Microsoft no longer sells books and music in stores.
