It’s been a busy few months for the Windows Store. We’ve welcomed all new apps built on the Universal Windows Platform from Bank of America, Facebook and Instagram. We’ve also seen big name Xbox titles come to the Windows Store like Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10, Quantum Break and Killer Instinct: Season 3. And we unveiled some great updates and content at E3 this week, but we’re far from done! We’re excited to announce great new content coming to the Store available today, including apps from Expedia, MyUSPS, and The Weather Channel.
Here’s a look at some recent additions to the Windows Store.
Expedia for Windows 10: Use the new Expedia app for Windows 10 to book your hotel, flight or car rental at home, on the go, or with your voice with Cortana, this app is available across all your Windows 10 devices. You can read more about the Expedia app for Windows 10 on the Expedia Blog.
MyUSPS for Windows 10: Add a tracking number to the MyUSPS app, available across all your Windows devices, and the Live Tile will update you with your US Postal Service package’s progress, or ask Cortana with your voice to open the dashboard and check its status for you*.
