Windows 8.x app to UWP one RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I upgrade my 8.1 app to UWP, what will happen to user ? Will they see the same Store listing info in different platform Store?

  • Hi Mark,

    You could keep two packages for your app in the Store: a Windows 8.1 package and a UWP one.

    For customers on Windows 10 who had your app will get your UWP package as an update after your new submission passes certification.

    For customer who already had your app on Windows 8.1, if they upgrade to Windows 10, they will also be updated to get your UWP package.

    What they see in the Store listing page depends on what you fill in this section in dashboard. If you want to create different Store listing page for different platform, you could refer to Create platform-specific Store listings for more details.

    Best regards,

    Zhendong Wu
