Microsoft has pushed out an update for the Microsoft Store app which brings some minor updates to the user interface of the app.
The app, which has been called the ‘new’ Store, supposedly brings the Sun Valley UI update to the app, but the app appears to lack the iconic rounded corners we expect.
Instead, the app brings new hover effects and a new compact mode, which can be seen in Alumia’s screen captures below:

The update appears to be rolling out now. What do our readers think of the changes? Let us know below.
Update: Brandon LeBlanc explained on Twitter why we are not seeing any massive changes – the update is in fact only a minor one, with the features Alumia noted above.
No. A new Microsoft Store app is not rolling out. It's simply an *update* (like we normally release) to the existing Store app in Windows 10 with improvements. The Store now displays the same whatever the size of the window and has an updated progress ring. That's it. https://t.co/INXFROEtHe
