Microsoft Store Remote Install gets a new name

A few weeks ago Microsoft enabled the ability to ask the Microsoft Store to install apps on a different PC from the one you are currently using. This was an expansion of the ability to browse the store for a game on your PC and ask the Store to download it on your Xbox.

Now the name of the feature has been revealed by an Insider Hub quest, where Microsoft spoke of the “push-to-install” feature, saying:

“Customers can purchase Windows apps and games from the Microsoft Store app today but can only install to the local device they are currently on. The Microsoft (or web site) allows a user to purchase and install an Xbox game and have it automatically pushed to their Xbox home console. Push to Install feature will provide a broader solution to allow users in the Windows Store App (or web site) to install any owned app or game to any of their applicable Windows devices. A user can now purchase a new game from their mobile phone, push it to both their Xbox console and home desktop PC, when he/she gets home both are fully installed and ready to launch.”

Push to Install is now live for all Windows 10 users.
