Back in 2014, Microsoft revealed Windows 10 – and the company will reveal more info on Windows 10 at Build 2015. The company’s annual developer conference is just a few days away – and thanks to our tipster, we now have some info for developers which Microsoft will likely reveal at Build this Wednesday.
Microsoft is planning to launch a new Developer Dashboard at Build. The windows.com domain now has a new subdomain, devx.windows.com which asks users to login and then the web page shows “Coming soon..” – this makes it clear that the company is indeed launching a new preview program for the Developer Dashboard. Here’s a screenshot of the app:
Now, we’ve some more info on the upcoming Dashboard Preview. Microsoft will separate the dashboard and submission processes for submitting Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps. However, when Microsoft finishes the development of the new Dashboard Preview, you’ll be able to submit and manage your apps for Windows devices in one place.
Unlike the Windows Insider program, the Dashboard Preview will be available to all registered Windows developers once it launches. The Dashboard Preview won’t let you submit new apps or IAPs (In-App Purchases) just yet, however – for now, you will be able to view your account and your published apps on the upcoming Dashboard Preview.
Microsoft will launch the new dashboard “later this year” and the unified dashboard is where developers will go to submit and manage their apps – no matter which device types their apps are targeting.
