Microsoft Store Search API? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, is there a Microsoft Store API that let's you search the Store and get back search results / and then app info / image etc? I'd like to implement a Store search in my app.

  • Hi,

    Currently, there is no such Microsoft Store Search API in UWP. I suggest that you could submit a Feature request in the User Voice. As a workaround, I suggest that you could launch the Store app from your app and then guide the users to search in the Store app.

    You could get more information about launch a default app:Launch the Microsoft Store app.

    Best regards,
