Microsoft plans to make a total rework of its online Xbox store, which intends to be as much as twice as fast as before. The new menu is developed to ease your experience browsing through it. The company reorganized the store so you’ll not feel confused when searching for a sale price.

If we’re to believe Microsoft’s words, you’ll load the shop “more than twice as fast as before” wrote the Xbox team’s Cody Bird in a blog post. When it comes to speed, the company took into account that they have to make a globe rework for the main menu so that users could feel natural when scrollng it.

It was also mentioned that the “Xbox makes it easier than ever to discover what you’re looking for” which brings us around to the thought that Xbox will integrate some kind of machine learning. It is only my assumption, but it looks like truth indeed. 

Microsoft is also spending some time upgrading the search process when you’re looking for a game or TV show. The fully redesigned navigation system discards the possibility of getting lost in the menu.

The company has also added or refreshed some features that will likely help you to browse the store: 

1 With the redesigned search functionality, it’s easier to filter your results.

2 The improved wishlist allows you to add new games to your list and quickly check your list content.

3 The updated shopping cart makes it easier to add items to your cart as well as view the items in your cart before and during purchase.

4 You’ll be able to shop across four generations of great Xbox content with the ability to view pricing while browsing for new Xbox One games and backward compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles.

Microsoft also gave a reminder about safety; the company is adding a parental controls and an age rating system. “The content rated beyond a user’s content filter level does not appear anywhere in search or browse experiences.” Meaning that you can be fully confident that your nine-year-old son or daughter won’t see any content with an rating “R”.

Also, the company notes that Xbox Insiders can see the new Microsoft Store on Xbox starting as early as August 5.
